Join Victor Feraru for this training session about the importance and power of story. Story telling is an essential component of societal growth and survival. It’s also an effective tool to inspire and save who would otherwise be voiceless.

Victor just passed the bar! He received his JD from SIU Law in Carbondale where he was named one of 20 top law students in the country by the National Jurist Magazine. Feraru’s work includes: the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division, as its social media assistant; extern for two U.S. District Court Judges; and for the Illinois State's Attorney's Office in Southern Illinois. Feraru is a member of the Illinois DCFS Children’s Justice Task Force. He was adopted as adult after living in over 40 foster homes, 3 group homes, imprisoned and homeless. Feraru was the 2008 winner of The Nation Magazine college writing contest with his piece "Transcending Trauma."
