Candles Holocaust Museum kicked off it's speaker series Thursday.

Gabriel Bol Deng is one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. He now travels around the country telling others about how hope brought him through his hard times.

Since coming to the United States, he has started a school in his home country. He wants to teach those students the same lessons he learned the hard way.

"It goes back to my parent's education, as I said in the beginning, that my worth as a human being is measured by how much I affect other people," Deng said.

The theme of this year's speaker series is "Be the Change." It focuses on stories of courage, resistance, rescue and heroism.
