#HalfTheStory’s mission is to empower the next generation’s relationship with social media, through advocacy, education, and providing access to resources for youth. #HalfTheStory believes digital wellness starts with education.
#Halfthestory is a global community that encourages individuals to share parts of their lives that exist outside of the standard social media story. What began as an $800 grant for a senior art project has since become a globally recognized platform connecting people of all walks of life through sharing experiences, struggles, entrepreneurial journeys, and aspirations.
In the digital age, we have the freedom to filter our lives however we choose. Hiding behind our social media identities, we mask the truth behind the partial realities we post every day. By sharing a part of our identity that is not regularly revealed through social media, we restore the human connection.
#HALFTHESTORY celebrates hidden human talents, passions, beliefs, and struggles that connect us on a deeper level.
