My Story is one of the most popular events on campus. A night of storytelling and empathy that features members of the USD community and allows audience members to “shut up and listen.” My Story, now a nationwide social venture, was founded at USD as a student program by Charlotte Vitak('17) during her Sophomore year in 2014. As Charlotte explored ways to build a more inclusive community, she decided to bring together students from across campus to share the critical moments and experiences that led them to become who they are today.  The event became an immediate success and from there the My Story team built a curriculum, a brand, a peer to peer mentoring program, and name for themselves on campus. Charlotte's legacy continues in the hands of different student-led teams putting together a My Story event every year as well as during orientation for all incoming students.  

This semester's My Story event will take place Tuesday, November 12. 7 pm at the UC Forums.
