Vita Voices is a celebration of the lives of Vita’s vibrant community of students, teachers, tutors and staff. The stories are told through their own voices – a powerful insight into their dreams, struggles, and accomplishments. We’re reminded that we are more the same than different, with a common basic desire for love, connection, and hope.
