When life presents a tough challenge, you can either give up or fight on. These are the stories of IUPUI students, faculty and graduates who have overcome the odds to make a difference on campus and in their communities. The series began in 2014 and profiles several students each year through videos shared on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.


Through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, each video receives thousands — and sometimes, tens of thousands — of views. Typically, the most widely shared videos involve those who work for larger organizations who also share the video on their social accounts.
