“Wonder” by Raquel Jaramillo

Our next book is Wonder by Raquel Jaramillo.  To start our discussion, let’s learn about a real life example of someone who was treated differently and used as a cruel Internet meme because of the way she looked and used these experiences to empower herself and others.

My goal in reading Wonder and learning about Lizzie Velasquez’s story, is to reflect on what defines YOU and that you think twice about how we interact with others, in person and online.
