Need some inspiration? Listen to these high schoolers

Ashley Parker, a graduating senior at J.W. Sexton High School.

State of Opportunity has a new storytelling booth that can easily go places and record lots of personal stories in one fell swoop. 

For its first trip I took the booth to J.W. Sexton High School in downtown Lansing. I wanted to catch the graduating class a few weeks before their big day.

There are stories of seeking asylum in America, learning how to control anger, what it feels like the moment a college acceptance letter comes in the mail, and wanting a second chance.

Listen to all the stories at State of Opportunity

If you'd like the storytelling booth to travel to your community, let us know here
