Let’s say you get on a Subway and some woman is frosting a cake next to you. What do you do? Probably take a picture and share it on social media. Do you ask her what she is doing?
Bettina Behjat Benayan got on a train, frosted a cake, and then shared it with the riders beside her. That is awesome in our book. She mentions that people in New York are always in each other’s personal space but don’t recognize one another. This experiment, or activity, breaks down those barriers. We especially love it because it is connecting to the people taking up the same space as we are. We challenge everyone to work harder to make connections to those around you; even if it is just one person.
In addition to her website, here is a connection to Bettina’s Youtube.
