What’s Your Story

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything about med school – that’s mainly because things are, as you can guess, getting hectic with neuroanatomy and the last thing I want to do is think more about school. So instead, I will present you with this.

The White House Initiative on Asian American and Pacific Islanders is holding a video competition called “What’s Your Story.” It’s run by my good friend and fellow JP brother, Eddie, and they’re looking for a short video of your story to be featured on the White House website. Check it out!

The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders launches an online video challenge, asking participants to submit personal stories about people who have had an impact on the people around them. The effort, called “What’s Your Story?” aims to highlight community service by Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders whose dedication to a cause has made a difference in their communities.

Participants are asked to submit a video describing unique experiences that have shaped who they are in less than three minutes.

Entries are accepted in any form, including music video, public service announcement, short film, video blog or in an interview format. Essays will also be accepted in the place of video entries. All entries should showcase someone’s work around a specific issue facing the AAPI community in under three minutes or with fewer than 1,000 words.

Entries should be submitted online at http://www.whitehouse.gov/whatsyourstory by Tuesday, November 1st, 2011.

A select number of entries will be posted on the White House website and a group of exceptional leaders highlighted will be selected to attend a White House briefing this fall and given the opportunity to share their stories in-person.
