Humans of L.A.S.



Fondée en 2010, Brandon Stanton a crée Humans of New York avec une mission simple : raconter les histoires des gens. Humans of New York a débuté comme un projet de la photographie où Stanton avait pour but de prendre 10,000 photos des habitants à New York. En chemin, il a commencé par discuter et par interviewer les futurs personnages de ses photos. Les photos et les histoires ne font qu'un sur son blog. Aujourd’hui ce blog de 20 millions abonnés est comme une étincelle dans la vie quotidienne des inconnus à New York.

Inspiré par Humans of New York, les éléves du Albert Schweitzer ont crée « Humans of L.A.S. » Grâce à leurs photos et leurs histoires aussi diverses soient elles, on peut avoir une étincelle dans la vie quotidienne de la communauté des élèves du L.A.S. !

I am an athletic man. I play handball and I have one big sister. One day with my sister and my friends I went to the swimming pool. My friends gave me a challenge: jump really high on the diving board. I went to jump. I have always been scared to jump on the diving board, but I decided that I would let go of my feelings and so I went to the stairs. I’m on the diving board. I’m really scared, my legs, my arms, my heart…my body says stop it. The people in the swimming pool became strange and I felt sick. I heard a voice. I know this voice…Yes it was my sister’s voice! She supported me, she danced and yelled for me. I always remember this day because she gave me hope, she is my example and she said that everyone is scared for one moment, for one thing or action, but with love people can realize anything. We can do it. My sister is becoming a teacher and she is learning this lesson. We can do this! She always repeats, “you are brilliant, you are beautiful, you are unique.” My sister helped me become me today, she is my hero, my example. I would just say: thank you sis for your help and determination. I love you.

My name is Lyne. I am 16 years old. I have a little brother. I like to play the cello and go hiking. I like to go hiking because I walk in the beautiful nature. I like to listen to people and am ready to help them. For me, people must have a smile and a good mood. After school I want to be a social assistant. My dream is for everyone to love each other and that there is no judgment. I want love and peace in the world because actually in several countries there is a lot of war and death. Many people die because they don’t have enough to eat. We have to love each other.

I have skied since I was 2 years old. I have done ski contests since I was 6 years old. For 5 years, I was not very good. I often got like 10thin regional contests and 25thin national contests but last year I stopped national contests for more training. I’ve progressed like more than ever and in the regional contest I got like 3rdor 2nd. It was amazing for me and my coach told me: “With your level now you can be like 5thin the national contest so I will enroll you in the next step of Citadines” (this is the national contest series). It was in February and the last step of Citadines was the second weekend of March, but before the first week of March I was in training in Markstein (my training mountain) with friends. We did some jumping, but I fell and I crashed. When I crashed I broke my bone. It was the last day of the training and I broke my bone! So the ski season was finished for me and I stopped everything. When my bone was better I had lost all of my muscles, but I worked and worked and worked and for the Italy training I was ready to restart skiing. Now I await the 2018-2019 season of skiing with eagerness and I hope I become better for the FIS race (international).

When I was 13, I started to have some self-conscious ideas about my body. I didn't like my arms, my leg, or my feet. I felt like my entire body was a skeleton. In school everybody, except my friends, made fun of me. There wasn't a day when I didn't receive some insults. Seeing that I was sad my parents began to worry about me. My mother asked me a lot of questions, concerning my feelings and how my day at school was. I've never had the courage to tell them the truth. But one day when I was 16, I've decided to make my weakness a strength so I started to muscle up my body. A lot of people especially girls began to tell me some sweet words. For the first time in my life many girls would like to hang out with me, and I had my first girlfriend! I've decided to create my Instagram account to share my experience, with my community, show them my transformation and how I managed to do it. It drives me literally crazy when I see a lot of people who have a lot of self-conscious ideas about themselves, especially the people who laugh at them. They just have to know they are beautiful just the way they are, they don't have to change a thing. Just be yourself! Change your weakness into a weapon.

Hello, I'm 16 years old. I live in Mertzwiller. I do triathlons in Mulhouse. Triathlon is a sport where a person swims, bikes and runs in one race. My father tells me sometimes « we are crazy ! » . I want to confess a little memory of my life. One day, when I was a little child, I went to the supermarket with my sister, Oceane, and she lost me. At this moment, I was very scared and I cried. Another day, I wanted to buy chocolate for my mother and so I decided to go to the supermarket, but I realized I didn’t have any money, it was really stupid. Today I think supermarkets are not for me. To finish, I want to tell you a memory of my morning. When I arrived at the swimming-pool for my training, Cédric, my trainer, scared me with a plastic spider. It was very horrible but it was a good alarm!

First, I come from French Guyane and it is where I am born. I lived all my childhood in this place and it was really cool. But one day, I decided to go to a sport class in France. I go to this school in Mulhouse for my passion: handball. I am a goalkeeper of the team and I am really happy that all the team believes in me. I feel I become a better player every day but sometimes I miss my parents. Now I live here and my grandparents take care of me. Hopefully, here I can cook and particularly Chinese food (I also love to eat it). One day, I hope I can do a world tour and see all that beautiful things in the world. But today I am happy to be here with my team and do my 8 hours of training per week.

I remember my first match of volleyball. I was 7 years old and was a beginner. I was really stressed before the match. I scored my first point and I was really happy after that. After the match was finished and won, I returned to the locker room and celebrated the victory. Two weeks after the victory, I had a new match and I won. I played more and I improved my division. 7 years after my first match, I am 14 years old and I am on the France volleyball team. In 2018, I played in the French Championship of volleyball with my team. After winning all my matches, I arrived at the final match. I stressed like my first match 7 years before. I scored 6 points in the match and my team and I won the match. I’m really so happy. I’m a French champion. My family was really happy for me and my victory. I really love this game. It’s my passion. So this is the story of my passion: volleyball.

I was born on the 27thof December 2002 in Mulhouse. My mother and all my family were very happy. It was the best Christmas for my family. Now, I’m 15 years old and my biggest dream is to have a good life when I will be an adult. I would like to do what I want. Today I’m happy because I haven't got any big problems in my life. But in the world there are many people suffering. A lot of children don't have access to learn and I would like to help those people who want to learn because everyone should be able to know the wealth of the world. When I was young, I had a weakness: I was dyslexic. I persevered and I don’t have any problems with it now. That’s one of my greatest prides. I’m really happy in my life but the worst thing that may happen would be never to see my brother again or to lose one of my relatives. I would like to overcome my fears and stay focused on my goals.

I am an Indian girl. I was raised with my culture. I can't talk easily with people because they laugh about how small I am. Yes in fact I am 1m51 an and I wonder why I’m like that. When I was younger, I didn’t care about all of this mockery, I was this little nice and cute girl you know but now I am a teenager and all of my classmates have grown but not me so I am really self-conscious about my height. In middle school I had a revelation: people thought they were adults, but no you’re only 12! So I decided to be confident, I do whatever I want to do, being at ease on the inside, more sociable, staying happy, and making people happy because I don’t like negative energy. So yeah I can be a little bit overbearing on the outside but on the inside I stay a nice girl.

Since I was a little boy, I was active. I'm funny and I enjoy being with my big family: two sisters (one young and one big) and a little brother. I have a very big family, it's fabulous. When I was a little boy, I discovered a new passion: football. I love it. Today I have four trainings a week. During a match I am nice with the players but I can be a bad boy if they are mean with me and my team. I have many shames but the biggest is in a match when I was running I fell on the ground. It was funny and very ridiculous. That’s sports !! When I was 12 years old, we were in a locker room before an important match. We started the match and after 20 minutes of playing I was running and I dislocated my knee so I fell on the ground. My friend stopped the match and ran to rescue me! They called an ambulance to go to the hospital because my knee was in a dangerous position, OH!! I remember that, it's not funny because the doctor said to me: “You must stop football for 1 year” and it was very difficult for me. But today I play in the U18 category in the regional level. I remember this moment as if it was yesterday. Today my dream will be to join a big football team, such as the Strasbourg team or Lyon team, because later I will become a football player, a big football player and an architect too (but I hate studies, it is hard and long but I don’t have the choice!) and I want to progress in football and have my bac too!!
