How we got started and
what we're up to now...
My Story was founded at the University of San Diego as a student program by Charlotte Vitak in 2014. At the first event ever we had 75 students attend! That's when we knew we had something good. From there we built a curriculum, a brand, a peer to peer mentoring program, and name for ourselves on campus. With a lot of hard work we grew and grew to have a regular attendance of about 150 students at our My Story events each semester.
From there, other schools caught word and before we knew it we were setting up the program for other universities. Since then we have expanded upon the principles of the program and the skills of the My Story team to adapt the program into My Story Events and My Story Workshops for universities, businesses, and non-profits.
Below are the original experiences and influences that spurred the foundation of this community driven program.
