#MyAAPIStory: Sharing the Stories of the AAPI Community

The White House is working with StoryCorps to document and share AAPI stories.

As part of its upcoming Heritage Month celebration, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is teaming up with StoryCorps to document and share the stories of the AAPI community.

#MyAAPIStory: Sharing the Diverse Stories of the AAPI Community

You are encouraged to share your story and those of others within the AAPI community. Highlight issues you care about, share about what your identity means to you, or interview others -- friends, family members, community leaders -- that are making a difference for the AAPI community.

You can share a story about any topic you wish, and the recording can be as short or as long as you'd like. Themes could include:

• Being the first in your family to go to college
• Your immigration story
• Defying the model minority myth
• Preserving culture and identity
• Overcoming odds

You can use the StoryCorps app to record your story or interview, and then post it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #MyAAPIStory. Select stories may be highlighted throughout the month of May in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
