Aliya: My Mother, My heritage

This after-school story and film workshop at the Bettye Davis East High School (2019) was led collaboratively by See Stories and Story Works, and generously funded by the Alaska Community Foundation. Students developed first person stories to create podcasts to share their cultures through each students’ unique lens.
Aliya dives into her Mother’s history, and understanding of what it means to be young and Hmong. Her Mother shares how her family’s journey of escape from Laos after the Vietnam war and coming to the US as refugees has affected her values.
