About this Resource
Making a mini-doco on your own life-changing experience may seem like a daunting task. Here are some things to collect and think about before creating your own MY:24 story:
- Get inspired! Watch MY:24 episodes to get some ideas for life-changing experiences that make good stories.
- Sift through your selfies. You’ll need some photos from your past. Find at least eight to tell the story of your childhood.
- Get nostalgic. Think about your childhood. What do you remember about your upbringing that led to the 24 hours that changed your life? Who were you then? How have you changed?
- Now think about those 24 hours, what are details of that day that have stuck in your mind? Why was it so significant?
- Who are your witnesses? Who was there? Think of people who played a part in your MY:24 story, you’ll need their help. Choose people who you trust to tell your story truthfully and sensitively.
- Practice reflection. Where are you now? How has your path changed or perspective shifted? What are your dreams and aspirations now?
