For almost a year I’ve wanted to create this digital story. Starting with nothing, there were many factors that slowed down the process. Nevertheless, the blame could only be placed on my shoulders. The most challenging hurdle was finding the story. For months I could not figure out what story I wanted to tell. I bounced around themes and while my original story tied in music, something i’ve always loved, this was not the story I wanted to share.
While I feel that with more time this video could have been 10x better, a lesson I was taught was that you must release art and keep working in order to grow to your full potential. I have not been following this rule, but I hope the change starts here!
In my opinion social change comes with education and collaboration. In order to break down barriers we much share our stories and shred the assumptions and ignorance that we are fed in our society. This is my first digital story of many. I hope to not only share more of myself, but more of my friends, my family and my community. You should too.
Jeremy Higuchi & Jonathan Higuchi… ALS awareness ice bucket challenge accepted!! What’s cooler than being COOL?!
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. There is no cure to this disease.
While most times I choose not to participate in viral stuff like this, a close friend of mine has a family member who is battling with ALS. My love and thoughts are with her and her family.
Special thanks to Diana & Jessica for talking me into doing it, the ice and the camera work!
As I near the days of the beginning of my masters program I am reminded of the flaws in the
American the WORLDS education system and its curriculum. I am challenged with the need to stay creative, stay inspired, and to constantly think outside of the norm. The goal is to make the rules and not to fall into the traps of being one whom abides by them. I hope this inspires others as much as it inspired me!
