Since then, it has expanded into a publication, marketing agency and a podcast.
5-Star Testimonials Include:
“Blend means diversity and stories being told to change the way in which people are treated in today’s society. We understand how we can make this world a better place. We talk about things that might be ignored because it doesn’t play into the government’s agenda. It feels amazing to be a part of this movement and I feel like we can make a difference with blend.” Shanae Simmons, Hunter College
“BLEND stands for sharing the stories of the people, the faces that you see on the news but rarely get to know their names and past. I admire that and I’m proud to be part of such a project.” Claudia Pizarro Nolasco, The College of New Jersey
“BLEND stands for the celebration of our differences instead of judgment. It not only unites others but wants to hear stories from real people. In today’s mainstream media, it’s easy for our voices to become lost and feel as if we are unheard, but BLEND makes it possible to share our stories, to come together, and discuss real world topics without the corruption of the mainstream press. We make it possible for people to be themselves and to know they are not alone.” Taylor Dennis, SUNY New Paltz
