Everyday People in Washington DC

One of my most recent photography projects has been a collaboration with students at American University to create a "Humans of American University" Facebook page. Inspired by the "Humans of New York" blog, I have been venturing through the streets and campus of Tenleytown in Washington DC and finding some real gems of wisdom from everyday people. I just thought that I'd share a few quotes and photos . I find that there is something very special about having conversations with strangers; though you may never come across their paths again, they can leave an impression on you that can last a lifetime.

What is your philosophy on life?

I work with entrepreneurs and people doing start ups, and I believe that people are here to help other people. That’s what really gives them satisfaction, that’s what really gives people meaning and I think that people are basically good. I believe that ones role in life is to discover your own abilities to help people in ways that are easy and that you love.  

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My mom. She is awesome.

"Insert baby talk here" 

The first time I got a piercing I was six, and it was just my ears. Then my second one was when one of my friends is high school did it for me.

Me: "Where you scared?"  

No! But I don't think that I would do it again now that I'm older. 

Me: What was your best day ever? 

One day when I was studying abroad in India. I went with some of my friends, and we rented a van to Jog Falls, which is the second tallest waterfall in India. We hiked through there, and walked to the waterfall, it was amazing... I miss everything about India, the smells and the people, everything...I miss it all.
