When trying to figure out what kind of audio story I would create based on my topic entitled, “My Passion for Pacific cultures,” I was debating on whether to interview Pacific Islander students here at WSU why they love their Pacific cultures or what their experiences as Pacific Islanders are like throughout their college years here at WSU. My mind was settled when I first interviewed my mentee, Emerson, who is actually from the same island as I am. Instead of sharing as to why he loved our Samoan culture, he wanted to share his experience here at WSU, and how WSU offers many opportunities to make him feel at home.
My goal for my audio story is to address my theme (relevant to the my topic) of “How the Pacific culture grows no matter where Pacific Islanders go” and “How one Pacific Islander’s experience can positively influence incoming Pacific Islanders here at WSU.
I only conducted two interviews, one of my mentee at Multicultural Student Services, and the other of my own experiences and perspective. I would love to receive any feedback, whether or not to get more interviews or not. Because I feel like my mentee and I, have addressed our experiences on behalf of every Pacific Islander here at WSU, clear enough.
The next step I would take towards this project, in preparation to getting the final story draft done, is to add a narration in the beginning and the ending. I will also use the razor tool to cut out the part where we both introduce our names, and go straight to our interviews. To wrap it all up, I will also add an instrumental in the background throughout my story-telling to avoid being dull.
