Today was a special day! I got to meet Brandon Doman of The Strangers Project. Brandon has been collecting anonymous handwritten stories from strangers since 2009. He now has a collection of ~25,000 journal entries. You can learn more about his project at http://www.strangersproject.com . You can also follow him on Facebook or Instagram . His first book is available for purchase on Amazon.
It was an honor to meet Brandon and of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to ask him my question.
Me: “What advice would you give to your younger self?”
Brandon: “I would just encourage my younger self to continue attempting any of these ideas I have had. This wasn’t my first idea, there were other ones that I didn’t do that I have no idea whether they’d have worked or not. I am very grateful that this one did, but I’d just encourage myself not to be hesitant about trying new things and seeing what works.”
