Livinlikelarz - A Professional Storyteller

Posted,


Larissa May, also known as @livinlikelarz, is a style blogger, creative consultant, and founder of #HALFTHESTORY, an Instagram campaign, which aims to challenge the status quo of millennials, by encouraging students to change the lens in which they view other “social stories,” and to serve as a platform to gain support around entrepreneurship, innovation, and discovery.

#HALFTHESTORY began last October when Larissa was at New York Fashion Week. She was running from the Betsey Johnson show to AOL HQ to hear DVF speak. "I remember getting lost on the subway, face-planting, breaking my phone, and barely making it to the event. Ironically, I decided to post a "glam shot" from a photoshoot earlier that day."

She was exhausted from the week of studying between shows, skyping into class, but she made it look "easy." Larissa realized she was only sharing #HALFTHESTORY, but she wasn't the only one. This was her chance to create a platform and make a difference.

What inspires you?

I like to cal myself a "professional storyteller." I am inspired by sharing the stories behind brands, products, ideas and people.

How has your work made a difference, do you have a fan story?

#HALFTHESTORY changes my life every single day. In one instance, a young girl approached me because she wanted to use #HALFTHESTORY as a way to announce her sexuality. It was one of the most moving experiences of my life. I woke up at 7am and we snapped photos by a river and celebrated with a large dinner after she posted. It felt amazing to create a safe place for her to share this monumental moment in her life, while feeling comfortable.

Are there any big events coming up the audience should know about?

- #HALFTHESTORY http://www.halfthestoryproject.com; does not exist without the stories from our fans & followers. Every day is a new opportunity to share a story on http://instagram.com/halfthestory
