Humans of Eagan
In 2010, a man named Brandon Stanton started a project. His goal was to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers on the street, and eventually, he began to interview his subjects and post powerful snippets of their stories on his Instagram account, @humansofny. Today, Stanton boasts over 8 million followers, as well as two bestselling books. Inspired by his project, which continues to give voices to so many, the staff of Eagan Independent is attempting to document the stories of students at our school. We know that a five-minute interview only reveals a small fragment of a person’s identity, but we hope that collectively, these fragments expose the humanity that lies in each of us.
