“Why do we need borders?” Laura Val wondered as a young child in Romania. Having lived in three different countries, including Israel, she formed an identity as a “global nomad.”

In Maine she found a place to document the richness of human experience and promote cultural awareness. She developed "Celebrating Human Creativity", a nonprofit organization based in Portland that provides a web-based global media resource to schools and youth organizations.
