Humans of Merion

HUMANS OF MERION What's your story? Everybody has one; a unique experience or circumstance that has helped shape the person you are. Your perspective on life is shaped by the experiences and the people you have met. This is your story. 

The HUMANS OF MERION Project is based on the HUMANS OF NEW YORK Project started by Brandon Stanton. Mr. Stanton started out with a goal of photographing 10,000 individuals he would meet on the streets of New York, but those meetings gathered greater meaning as he began to actually speak to those individuals and hear their stories.

The goal of the HUMANS OF MERION Project is to highlight the amazing and unique stories of as many members of our community as are willing, to celebrate the blend of differences that make us special and make us one in Mercy. 

If you would like to participate in the HUMANS OF MERION Project, or know someone who has a story to share, please stop in the Media Center or email cconnor@merion-mercy.com or rgregitis@merion-mercy.com.
