The stories below touch on the ideas of pressure posted by your peers. If you see something you relate to and want to join the conversation, make sure to comment, ask questions, or create a video of your own!
WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY
Here’s how our video project works: Somebody shares a video about their life and inspires others to tell THEIR stories.

Once you submit the video and we are done editing, we will send you a copy for you to approve.
