Everyone has a story, but not everyone gets asked to share it. Unassuming Collective aims to build stronger communities and families through storytelling. These stories stand as a reminder that the most unassuming person can help make you feel less alone in your struggle, inspire you, teach you, and even save your life.

The stories shared have been as comical and introspective as they have been heart wrenching, with the project embraced by those who come across it.

In documenting stories, our goal is to stand as a reminder that we are in this together and we can better our communities, our families and our own lives by sharing our stories and listening, with empathy, to other's.

Every man I meet is my master in some point, and in that I learn of him.

Unassuming Collective is an exploration of the hearts and minds of those who have great lessons to share, but who rarely get asked what the world looks like through their eyes.
