So here’s my first segment of 14 Strangers! For two weeks I asked one person every day the same question: “If you could give me one piece of advice to last me for the rest of my life, what would it be?”.
This was definitely a new experience for me. In the past, I have never had trouble with public speaking or with talking to new people or anything like that. I guess I’m a pretty outspoken person. But with this, I was definitely out of my comfort zone. I don’t think I realized how nerve racking it would be to just approach a totally random person and ask them a deeply metaphorical question. At the end of the day, when I’d add the daily video onto my iMovie draft, I was really glad that I had approached the specific person because it was extremely interesting to hear what each person had to say about life.
Right from the first day, I knew that this was going to be a great project. I had originally thought that there would be a few people who would repeat their “best advice”, but to my surprise, each piece of advice was different from the next. It just goes to show that every person has their own story. Check back on April 9th for the next video! Feel free to leave a comment if you have a good suggestion for a future question
