Because curiosity and courage are contagious.
I created the Far From Alone series because I wanted to highlight the inspiring, badass stories of people everywhere who are living out curiosity in their everyday lives.
I interview people who dare to ask questions, rethink how they see things, and remake traditions — whether it’s exploring polyamory, getting body-positive, healing from homophobia, leaving high-demand religious groups, and more.
If you have your own story you’d like to tell, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or a DM on Instagram if that’s more your style. I would so love to hear from you!
