Inspired by the Facebook phenomenon Humans of New York (HONY), this feature showcases the Humans of Brunel. A diverse and cultured University, Brunel has some amazing people.

 

So in the style of the HONY creator, we took to the concourse with a camera and a voice recorder and started asking questions. Met with both curiosity and confusion, we spoke to a huge variety of people, many with interesting stories or quotes to share.
