Humans of Gaynor: Students Explore Togetherness and Community

Prior to spring break, Sara Curwin’s Green Cluster class created “Humans of Gaynor,” a 12-minute video modeled after Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York” project. It has taken on increased relevance after the move to distance learning. “During this time of uncertainty and the feeling of loneliness for many, it is my hope that this video is a reminder that while we are all feeling similar confusion and fear, we have each other to confide in, allowing us to feel a sense of togetherness,” Ms. Curwin said.
