An Invitation to Speak: Michael Vidal's Story, February 14, 2012
He’s got energy. Thought after thought race out of his mouth, one left dangling unfinished from his lip while the next takes a leap of faith. Warm laughs and wide smiles provide cushion.
The lively story he’s telling here in a small office on campus is how a boy from New York City came to be a man standing on a large stage, alone, in front of hundreds of people in the Johnson Theatre, telling a different story.
The man is Michael Vidal, a senior psychology and international affairs dual major. As part of the University’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, Michael was chosen by the organizing committee to speak to the UNH student body about actively promoting fair and equal treatment and opportunity for marginalized groups in the U.S.
