What's the challenge?
To help people in need with whatever they ask.
What are you afraid of?
Approaching other people to offer my help without knowing how they will react.
How was the experience?
It took me some time to find the best way to approach this, mostly because I wanted to record the situation without making them uncomfortable with the camera. So, I discovered that by just filming myself there wouldn't be any problem. The first attempt was the hardest. I'm bad at talking to strangers and I didn't know how to start the conversation, but when I finally asked this person in what way I could help him, he responded: "Help my friend over there" pointing at a woman across the street who was also asking for money. That truly surprised me and encouraged me to keep going. So I went to his friend and offered my help. It took me a couple of days to finish this challenge since I wanted to reach more people. I'm so glad I did this as it gave me the confidence to approach people in need, whether is someone that's having a bad day or someone asking for help. This project made me more sensible to others' needs and this challenge is something that I want to keep doing for the rest of my life. I just learned that with very little money, and very little time, we are able to make someone else's day so much better.
