Give Someone a Gold Medal

Mother’s Love from Asian Pacific Fund on Vimeo.

In celebration of the 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro this summer, we invited students to think about one person in their life they would honor with a gold medal. Students awarded their gold medals to strong and inspiring individuals that have helped shape who they are today. These individuals range from family members including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings while others honored members of their communities including teachers, mentors, coaches, friends and classmates. Others spanned the globe inspired by world leaders, athletes, authors, entrepreneurs, and icons.
