My Story - Josh Hawkins
By Josh Hawkins
For my story assignment I chose to illustrate my vacation on Nantucket Island. I love the place so much, its everything you can ask for and more for the ideal summer getaway. The fourth of July weekend is especially entertaining.Friends from high school and college all join together on the beach in one special party to celebrate America. The beach is swarmed by eager beach goers as cars and coolers are pulled through the sand. The beach is blanketed by groups and groups of friends. The beach is a blur of red white and blue covered people expressing their freedom and independence. The celebration lasts into the night where fireworks explode in every direction clouding the island. I made this video not only to express my love for Nantucket but to expose the Nantucket experience to those who haven't been there through picture and video.

Derek Jeter Story- James Randazzo
By James Randazzo
For my Intro to Communications class, our class was assigned a My Story Project. I am a sports enthusiast, so I wanted to pick a subject whom I knew a sufficient amount of information on.The person I chose to do the assignment on is Derek Jeter. This is so, because I have been going to baseball games at Yankee Stadium with my family since I was a toddler. When Jeter came up to the Big League in 1995, I became an instant fan. Jeter plays with such heart and passion forthegame and puts the team before himself. Last week, Derek became the 27th player ever to reach 3000 hits. It only seemed fitting that I would commemorate the man who I grew up watching and cheering for. I tried to encapsulate Jeter's career through my perspective of his greatest moments using video and narrative. Hope you Enjoy!
My Witness to the 28th Beijing Olympic Games
By Hong-yu Li
In the Summer of 2008, I went to Beijing to try to catch a glimpse and the thrill of the atmosphere of the Summer Olympic Games. It was the first time that Beijing hosted the Summer Olympic Games. As a Chinese American, I am very proud that my native country was able to show the world what it has in store. The theme of the game was: One World, One Dream. It promoted the idea that we are living in one world, and we come together to pursue our dreams. We can set aside our differences in any aspects of life to only focus on having our dreams come true. I believe that it was an opportunity in my life time to be able to witness the historic event in my native country. During the 28th Beijing Olympic Games, I had a such wonderful experience that I would like to share it with others.
