We Need Your Story
We launced a website just for the stories of humans in the face of COVID-19 outbreak: Humans in Pandemic.
Our goal is to celebrate the human spirit in the most dangerous and isolated time.
The COVID-19 epidemic is one of the first major worldwide events in human history that is being broadcast live on social media. Social media creates a unique situation for people that hasn’t existed before: Everyone more or less experiences the same thing at the same time. However, most truly global events happened before social media. Even 9/11, the Arab Spring and the Hong Kong Protests were technically regional. Now, people who live across the globe from one another and may be living completely different lives are being impacted by the exact same disease. How do we with different cultural backgrounds, education, religions, and political ideas deal with the same virus?
We put together this website for people to tell their stories.
We are looking for authentic descriptions of raw experiences.
No matter you are a veteran writer or an enthusiast, please share your unique experience with us.
