In the fall of 2011, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders launched the “What’s your story?” video challenge. The challenge aimed to highlight the personal stories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across the country who have impacted their community through their dreams, experiences, and dedication to a cause.
Ultimately, we received over 200 unique and inspiring stories. Each video shines a light on the important work happening around the country. And they remind us what makes this community so strong. From these submissions, we have chosen the top 11 video entries based on strength of content and creativity.
Now we need your help. Please help us by watching these 11 video submissions at obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/whatsyourstory and voting for the story that most inspires you. The deadline for voting is March 1, 2012.
After you select your favorite video we will choose a group of these exceptional AAPI leaders to share their stories at the White House as special guests at a White House Initiative event in March. Please take some time to watch and share these inspiring stories.
