The fall 2012 RadioActive students just completed their eight-week workshop where they learned how to make radio stories for the first time. In this podcast, we're featuring several of their incredible stories about triumphing over tough times:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Ellie Garcia takes on the challenge of hosting solo — a first for RadioActive! She shares the story of her tough time getting to South Park Community Center, where the fall workshop was held.
And if you know a 16-18-year old who wants to tell radio stories, tell them about RadioActive's spring workshop!
