When I moved to New York I was determined to take advantage of everything the city had to offer most importantly the amazing people here and the opportunities for connection and collaboration. So when Meir Kay reached out to me and pitched me on being part of a filmed social experiment I had to learn more. His idea was to see if we could explore our biases and capacity to really hear one another by having a blindfolded conversation.
I was immediately intrigued but a little nervous to say yes. I consider myself a pretty open person but we know that we have unconscious judgements and biases and I was afraid of what might be exposed about how I perceive people. Over the course of an hour long conversation I talked with Dalia and Oshry about my work, hopes, background and family. I realized we had so much in common but when asked to guess what they looked like I didn't picture the people in front of me. Watch the video to see what we all thought.
