Title: Everyone Has a Story
Diversity is the collection of people with different cultures and backgrounds who come together to share knowledge and learn from each other. Perhaps the most accurate representative of diversity is books with their different covers, sizes, illustrations, objectives and authors. Most importantly, each book has its own unique story which contributes knowledge, creativity and imagination to the world. Similar to when people begin to meet new acquaintances and learn about them, books introduce new insights that add to a person's library of knowledge and enable growth as a person. Every person is special, but when people come together to add their two cents, people become inspired and something great is created.
