Humans of New York: Keep to the Right, 2014
I want to study engineering at MIT. I've still got two years until I graduate high school, so I'm trying to learn everything I can. I'm a certified cable installer, and I'm also certified in fiber optic cable, but I still need my copper based systems certification. I practice making cables all the time. I can write the perfect essay telling you how to make cables, but I still need to work on keeping my hand steady. You need a very steady hand when you're working with fiber optic cables. So for twenty minutes everyday, I work on balancing my tools on my hand, just like this.

Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York (HONY) captures life in New York City through a single photo and the subject’s own words. In 2014, four MIT students created Humans of MIT, a Facebook portrait-blog inspired by HONY.
