At HuffPost, we're kicking off an exciting new project and we'd love you to participate! It's called "The Moment I Knew," a user-submitted video series where readers tell the stories of life-changing moments they've experienced. Each section of HuffPost has chosen a different theme -- whether it was the moment you knew you were in love, the moment you knew your marriage was over, the moment you knew you loved college or the moment you knew you were broke. You can also tell us about any other life-defining moment you'd like to share. The possibilities are endless!
Here on HuffPost LA we're suggesting you finish this phrase: "The Moment I Knew I Wanted To Make LA My Home ..."
We know that whether you grew up here, went to school here or moved to LA for work, it can take a while before our big, sprawling metropolis begins to feel like home. Was it a walk through Chris Burden's "Urban Lights" at LACMA? Perhaps it was while waiting in line at the neighborhood taco truck. Or maybe the moment came when you were stuck on the 10 freeway, listening to K-Earth 101 and you realized you didn't want to be anywhere else but there. We want to hear about it.
It's really easy to contribute. You can create your video using YouTube or Vimeo and send the link/URL of the video to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you create your video using your laptop or mobile phone and have a video file, please attach the file in an email to email@example.com. Please make sure to include your full name with your video submission. Each video should be 30-60 seconds long, and should feature only you, speaking right into the camera telling your story. Please start your story with the words "The moment I knew I wanted to make Los Angeles my home..."
We can't wait to hear about your up close and personal Los Angeles moments. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
