When the famous Kony 2012 video came out last week it created a firestorm of passion, tears, fury, and criticism. No matter where one stood on the video, it sparked discussion and action.
Chelsey Mandaric, a UOIT Communications student, knows this first hand as she is set to make Joseph Kony famous in Durham Region.
After watching the video Mandaric was inspired to become part of the movement. “The point of the video is to make people aware,” said Mandaric, who has previously worked with Free The Children. “Nothing inspired them until this video went viral. It’s not about the money or even the cause. It’s about finding out what we don’t know. It’s about awareness.”
