There is nothing more powerful than the stories of Asian Americans
and Pacific Islanders. Our stories define who we are, and they reflect
our impact on the community around us. At the White House Initiative on
AAPIs, we seek to amplify these voices nationally. We are pleased to
announce the first ever White House Initiative Video Challenge, called
“What’s Your Story?”
We’re calling on you to produce a video, up to three minutes long,
telling us who you are and how you have impacted those around you. In
your video, answer the questions: How have your unique experiences
shaped who you are today? And in what ways are you making a difference
in your community? Everyone is welcomed to participate.
