On Saturday, Omaha South High School's Thrive Club organized an event for students to show off their heritage.

Displays featured the history and culture of the countries where students were born, including Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Organizers say it helps students show how well they've adjusted to omaha.
Students we talked to agreed.

"It's kind of awesome how they are seeing and experiencing all the new stuff that we have," said Purni Biswakarma.

"It means everything to me because I get to experience the culture that we have here.  I've made friends from Nepal, from Thailand, from Africa and I think that's really nice because it has helped me a lot to expand horizons," said Lizbeth Perez.

It's the cultural event's third year... Held along with a talent show... And college fair.
