The One About Social Media & #HalfTheStory with Larissa May The Papaya Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

The average teen spends 7 hours a day online. That’s ⅓ of their life. #HalfTheStory began when founder, Larissa May (@livinlikelarz), was juggling two lives as a student at Vanderbilt University and a fashion blogger/entrepreneur, covering NYFW for highly respected media outlets. Behind the perfectly curated instagram feed was 17 hour workdays, debilitating anxiety, and sleep deprivation. Through industry conversations and discussions with peers she quickly realized that she was living in a world where everyone was craving a platform to share, which led to the beginning of @halfthestory. It started as a desire to highlight our most human attributes on social media to reignite human connection in the digital space. So what began as a $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.
