I decided to create a Humans of New York style blog titled: Humans of Mary Washington, to showcase the stories of several students at University of Mary Washington.
I always believed that there was something special we could learn from the blog Humans of New York. I personally believe that this style of blogging can create a stronger cohesiveness in our lives. All too often and through social media, we are charmed by the highlights of people’s lives in our communities. We often do not have an opportunity to know the true struggles and successes, or defining factors, of our friends and colleagues.
Humans of New York tells the true stories of individuals by bringing attention to events that shaped their lives. I decided to bring this to University of Mary Washington. My Project, Humans of Mary Washington – A People Project, will be using this style of storytelling by examining the struggles and accomplishments of several students in hopes to promote authentic connection through expressing our deeper selves.
