Hao Dinh is our current volunteer Challenge Community Champion. You'll see him popping up across the Creative Confidence Challenge with handy tips and words of encouragement – and posting community updates here like a true champion!

We are in week 3 of the Inspiration phase and the conversations relating to how we can inspire young people to cultivate their creative confidence have been awesome. I particularly enjoy seeing how OpenIDEATORS are building from other people’s observations, experiences and insights. Thank you for the inspirations and keep the amazing discussions going!

This week I want to focus on the Inspiration Interview Starter Kit. During the Inspiration phase, we want to get insights from people from diverse cultural backgrounds, professions, ages and abilities. To help us understand more about multiple perspectives on creative confidence, we’re keen for you to interview folks to gain greater insights. Your interview will be preferably face-to-face but could also be by phone, Skype, etc – or if those options are not available, perhaps via email. The Starter Kit provides an easy-to-follow approach and tips on how to conduct effective interviews. I used the Interview Starter Kit to help me lead discussions with friends, family and new acquaintances from around the world.

Check out the below video highlighting some of the face-to-face, virtual and email interviews I conducted. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with on your own interviews to feed our challenge conversations...

Hao, thanks so much for sharing this amazing video with us! I love how you tapped into people's creativity... especially if it wasn't what people typically think of as "creative". This post reminds me of when I was a Teaching Fellow at the Asian University for Women ( in Bangladesh. There, I interviewed over 60 students from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, ... about their experience at AUW and their educational journey as women. At first, most students were shy and stayed on the surface. But once we got deeper into the interview and established trust, they started to really blossom and recognize the significance of their own stories. Giving people a voice to their story, their creativity, their dreams is crucial in moving the world forward!
