Talk to Strangers launched as a platform to share the novelic stories of strangers that I have met across the globe. Throughout my travels, this passion project has morphed into an outlet to put on display the human experience in all forms.
I hope that my ironic, digital display of raw face-to-face interactions with strangers chisels away some apprehension you may have towards talking to strangers in the digital dominant age.
My name is Julie and I’m a Toronto-based flight attendant and journalism graduate. Guided by the kindness in strangers, I’ve been lead on exhilarating adventures allowing me to experience local life in its rawest form. I took my first solo trip at eighteen in 2014 and have since travelled solo to destinations like Ghana, Colombia, and Morocco. I most often find myself in the company of open-armed locals who are keen to allow me to get a glimpse of their day-in-the-life and what ultimately makes them tick.
Perhaps these real-life characters will strike a cord of relatability in you or maybe inspire a visit to their neck of the woods. For me, these humans have fed an unrelenting need to feel human connection. Maybe through these stories you will find in yourself something different.
