I was hired to facilitate a digital story telling workshop at Museum of Chinese in America.  The Museum began the program called  “The Youth Advisory Board (YAB).”  The museum hired a group of Chinese youth of age between 16 to 18 to learn the history of Chinese in America and to make their own stories of how they relate to the history.  The program was held every Saturday for two hours from September 2008 to June 2009 in total of 32 sessions.  The program was first facilitated by Dylan Yeats, a NYU doctoral student in history, who was also hired by the museum.  With Mr. Yeats, the YAB members discussed their relationship to the history, strategies for telling this history, and what the terms Chinatown and Chinese American meant to them.  I joined YAB and Mr. Yeats in January 2009 and begun a set of exercises.
