Samoan http://kuow.org en VIDEO: Teen Challenges Samoan Stereotypes http://kuow.org/post/video-teen-challenges-samoan-stereotypes <p>Manu Tuito'elau, 18 years old, was running late to history class at Evergreen High School, just south of Seattle. It wasn't his first time.</p><p>Manu's teacher called him out for being late. Manu didn't want to put up with it, so he started to walk out of class. That's when he remembers hearing his teacher say that it was always Manu and his people that scored low in class. He also remembers his teacher asking, "How come you couldn't do as well in my classes as you do on the field?"

In this podcast, we're featuring several of their incredible stories about triumphing over tough times:</p><ul><li>A 15-year-old girl accidentally burns her house down. Now she's trying to pick her life up from the ashes. She shares her deeply personal story.</li><li>A teenage girl loves to care for children with cancer at Seattle Children's Hospital. But the help goes both ways — she has a rare form of leukemia herself.</li><li>A high school teacher tells a Samoan student that he's only good at football. The student channels his anger at that teacher into a documentary about the stereotypes Samoans face.</li></ul><p> Thu, 22 Nov 2012 19:00:00 +0000 RadioActive Youth Media & Esteli Garcia 3944 at http://kuow.org Episode 34: Try And Stop Us
