Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York to Hold Event in Manila on February 3

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"What was the happiest moment of your life?" "When I came for the first time. God damn!" - Humans of New York.

Brandon Stanton, the photojournalist behind the popular blog Humans of New York, has announced that he is hosting an event (two occurences within 1 day) in Manila this weekend at University of the Philippines Diliman. ....and it's for free!

Surprising and moving, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.

When scrolling through social media we will ALWAYS stop to read a Humans of New York post. Always.

We thought back then that we were completely in control of our emotions, but were all teary-eyed sobbing after reading just one post by Humans Of New York... After that, it was oh so addicting to read more.

Who else goes to the comments section of Humans of New York just to have a good cry?

We are among those who love their content that touches emotions and give life lessons that are inspirational and thought-provoking.

Do you ever go open Instagram expecting to see Friday night shenanigans and Humans of New York makes you tear up.

We are among those persons who stay being ignorant for the hardship next door but easily get our heart broken over a sad story on Humans of New York facebook page. Shame on us.

Because of this, we almost founded a “Humans of___” (inspired by Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton). Our first “brilliant” idea was to interview people and post their stories on the page.

We always wanted an interview series not with the moguls and magnates but rather with younger people still trying to make it. i.e. the Humans of Manila for business.

We say go for the most authentic approach. Tell feel-good stories from average people in a beautiful way.

What we heard totally moved me to do something bigger. But somehow, we couldn't pursue the goal since our work load does not permit us the luxury of time.

But remember this:

"If you're doing it for the money, you'll fail. There's a long journey of heart and hard work before the money comes." Humans of New York

Good job to Brandon Stanton for the effort he puts on his features.
