YouTube Video Instructions:

In order for us to best decide on who will be this year’s speakers, we need to see you in action!  Please upload a video to YouTube of you speaking. Make sure to mark it as “Unlisted,” so that it isn’t accessible to anyone without the direct link to the video.  This video does not have to be a professionally taped video, but it should illustrate your speaking abilities and answer the question: “What is your personal story of strength?” We ask that you keep your video length to no more than 12 minutes.

Examples for expressing your story in video:

  • Telling us your personal Story of Strength
  • Spoken Word/Poetry
  • Rap
