p:ear youth share their stories

This is my story…
To celebrate p:ear's 10th anniversary and prepare for this May's p:earblossoms X: story, we're asking the kids express their own stories. This week videographer Jacob Hinmon recorded youth, and next week p:ear board member and PNCA writer-in-residence Barry Sanders will do a writing workshop. Ask yourself:
  • Where were you in your life when you met p:ear? Where are you now?
  • Do you think p:ear helped you find your place or voice / sense of self-worth?
  • If you were looking back 10 years from now, what part will p:ear have played in your life?
