About Unsung Heroes
We focus on promoting awareness & appreciation for the workers on college campuses who work hard and keep the university running behind-the-scenes but often go unrecognized and unappreciated. These unsung heroes include Janitors, Food & Service Workers, Construction Workers, Security Guards, etc. We have been interviewing these workers and sharing their personal stories in hopes of highlighting their portraits of humanity through photography and dialogue. We highlight the workers on social media – Humans of New York style.
We have been interviewing these workers and sharing their personal stories – in hopes of highlighting their portraits of humanity via Facebook, Instagram, and twitter [humans of new york style] and also giving back to the workers through acts of kindness.
Our goal is to inspire institutions to give back and show appreciation for the workers who are often overlooked. We want to be able to “make visible the Invisibles” – every institution has them, whether it’s a university or even the workplace.
