    Hi, Anonymous.

    I might participate, but I haven’t even begun to think of a topic. Good luck if you decide to participate!

    Tough topic. Education cures poverty, disease, but is very costly. I’d say turn it all into a reality show/charity.. a show highlights a cause like a poor family starting a business or a poor genius who wants to go to mit. Ppl vote for who they want to help, then half the voting money goes to the person, the other half is revenue. Win-win situation wink

    that would be various initiatives for poverty reduction in developing nations.eg initiatives for education.What do you say?

  7. Ali says:

    Hi, Swagnik.

    Discussion of poverty reduction initiatives (PRIs) would make for a compelling video provided that you offer a novel perspective. I suspect that many of the submissions will address PRIs, but given your extensive studies of and exposure to poverty, you shouldn’t have any problem doing so.

    Good luck!

    Hi Ali!

    One thing though When they ask us to back it up with evidence…Im not sure evidence of what kind?
    I mean, are we supposed to film hard evidence of let say,..umm…the “needs” in society that support our idea? If we say poverty is adversely affecting a certain area , are we supposed to include a short documentation showing the area n how its being affected?

  9. Ali says:

    Hi, Anon.

    I don’t think that you need to go to that length in adducing evidence, especially since you have a maximum of three minutes in which to make your case. If you go down the hard evidence route, use perhaps two or three statistics to develop your larger point. If you opt to give a personal account, offer one simple but powerful narrative; don’t try to tell your entire life story.

    Good luck!

    Best,

    Ali

  10. Swagnik says:

    Ali,So you are double majoring?

  12. Ali says:

    Hi, Swagnik.

    A lot of people at MIT complete a double major (I’d say that Course 6 and Course 15 is the most popular one), so it’s definitely doable!

    Yours,

    Ali

  13. Swagnik says:

    Hi Ali,
    Are you majoring in pol Science or management or both?
    Best

  14. Ali says:

    Hi, Swagnik.

    Both — you can’t make any money if you just do political science. =)

    Yours,

    Ali
