This wouldn’t be the first time where I have made a post about someone who interviews or interacts with random strangers. When you’re young, your parents tell you not to talk to strangers. I mean, they are right, obviously. Even as we age into adulthood, talking to strangers still makes people nervous like when you meet new students in a class, at your work, or when you’re just simply in a room full of strangers. Strangers, I’ve learned, are sometimes the people that will teach you the most. They are the unexpected ones you cross paths with and never expect anything from.
100 Interviews is a project conducted by 22-year-old Gaby Dunn who has decided to meet and interview 100 types of people that she has never met before. These people range from someone who is an inventor to someone who is remaining a virgin until marriage to a recovering heroin addict. Gaby started this project on October 1st, 2010 and hopes to have met her goal in exactly one year. I’ve already read through two of her interviews – her most recent ones – and I am quite impressed. I kind of wish that I had come up with her idea first!
