Meghedi, our 2013 In Cahoots Contest winner, wrote us asking if we would help promote her entry for a national spoken word contest here in the states called “Light the Stage.” Of course! We love to hear from our former contributors and are more than willing to help support their future endeavors when possible, be it winning a contest or promoting a new book release.
So here is “My Father Lived in India,” Meghedi’s entry for the National Speech and Debate Association’s contest. She needs as many likes as possible to win, so if you like the video and have a YouTube or Google account, please thumbs it up. If you love it, please pass it on with the same request.
