Inspired by the “Humans of New York” project run by Brandon Stanton, five MIPA participants were randomly selected and shared some facts about themselves. They also contributed their favorite song to go along with the Mipapalooza music-based theme.

The Instagram page is great! For those interested in Humans of New York, Portraits of Boston is a similar project that I also enjoy following.

I think the Humans of New York inspiration was cool. It would’ve been cool if you asked them a question and had response like Humans of New York.
