How You Can Create a Welcoming Story!

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Did you immigrate and feel particularly welcomed by someone you’d like to thank? Or know someone you’d like to interview for their story? Create your video or digital story! Here are questions to help you:

What country did you come from and when did you arrive in the United States? What was your biggest challenge early on? Tell a short story about someone special who helped you. How did you feel about that person? If that person were here with us today, what would you like to tell them?

Please begin by saying “My name is ____ and this is my Welcoming Story.” And when uploading your story to YouTube or Vimeo (or similar), please name it “Welcoming Story: [Your First Name] from [Country of Origin]”. Then send us the link!
