"My Story," a video created by Malcolm Rashid performing spoken-word, is the winner of the Video category of the “Tell Your Story” student contest conducted by UC Santa Barbara’s Division of Humanities and Fine Arts for Give Day 2018.

Life in Humanities and Fine Arts aims to tell a compelling story of Creativity, Imagination and Empathy - and Rashid’s emotional depiction of his journey to UCSB helps to tell that story.   

Rashid is a UCSB Sophomore double majoring in Film and Media Studies and Psychology.  He was a Gates Millennium Scholar in 2016. The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program was established to provide outstanding students from minority groups with an opportunity to complete an undergraduate college education in any discipline area of interest.
