TitleHistory is all a Faded Memory
DescriptionHistory is all a faded memory. There's no time to change it. There's no time to revise it. No time to remake it. It is what it is. A memory is immutable. What's leftover is called history and this creates our past. Funny history, heart warming history, history that will last forever. Make the best of it. After all, there's only one of each.

  NameJasmine Fernandez
  BiographyHi, my name is Jasmine. I'm an ordinary eleven- year old, sixth grader- (attends Amazing Grace Christian School) who happened to create a History Is __ film because of a school project. I've never made many films myself so when I found out that I had to create one for MOHAI, I was actually terrified. I'm pretty shy in general so developing a video and showing it to the rest of my class seemed like an activity that I would not personally choose to do myself. But, that was long time ago... it was a faded memory. In the process of creating my film, I realized that I was actually completing an assignment that I enjoyed. I felt like I was having fun doing homework! And my final product was this video.
