Winner of ‘What R U Doing’ Video Contest Named

The Founders’ Celebration “What R U Doing?” video contest wrapped up last week with a number of outstanding videos capturing life at UC San Diego. We heard from an alumnus who started his own business making custom skateboards, a staff member who does family arts outreach programs, a student who is working on cutting-edge robotics research, and many more creative UC San Diego community members. Today, we are proud to announce that the winner is:

First Place

The first place winner, and recipient of the premiere party at The Loft with $200 to Zanzibar Café, is alumna Kimberly Ang, ’11 for “GiveYourGap.” Ang and fellow alumna Amber Rackliffe, ’11 are the co-founders of GiveYourGap.org, an online resource for young people to explore opportunities for social good across the globe. Their video tells the story behind GiveYourGap, beginning with their experiences as students at Eleanor Roosevelt College.

Runner Up

The runner up of the Founders’ Celebration “What R U Doing?” video contest is UC San Diego student Kevin Isomoto for “A Video about My Videos.” Isomoto started a project to video document his entire college experience, from lectures and volunteer projects to running in the Chancellor’s Challenge 5K. Isomoto has filmed more than 400 days at UC San Diego, uploading the videos to YouTube to share with friends and family. Inadvertently, the project turned into a resource for prospective students from around the world to get a glimpse of life as a student at UC San Diego.

You can view all of the video entries on UC San Diego’s Facebook page. Thank you to everyone who participated, and please join us for the Founders’ Celebration activities taking place this week, Nov. 17-19. Visit www.learnlive.ucsd.edu/founders for event details.
