With Humans of New York, Brandon Stanton depicts stories in a manner that strikes a chord with many. Adopting a global phenomenon such as that, with a belief that each person brings a unique story, we present to you Heart of Hopkins to help you know better the person you see across the hallway each day, your favorite professor and the staff who helps you when you are lost.
The idea for Heart of Hopkins came to Carey the Torch from Priya Prakash, a student in the healthcare management program at Carey. Interacting with people from all walks of life while working on the Six Degrees Project at her undergraduate alma mater, Vellore Institute of Technology, based on the ‘six degrees of separation’ theory, she collected stories of people who left her inspired. Such tales of courage, determination, resilience, or even pure happiness deserve to be heard; and most definitely – shared.
Here’s to these people, who are undeniably more than just faces and through their dynamic personalities impact others more than they know.
