About

HumanStories is a spoiled ‘child’ that fell suddenly into the depths of the Internet. It’s not even 40 days old yet and we, it’s ‘godfathers’ decided to take it hunting for beautiful human stories. We told it “That’s how you will mature, if you don’t ask, if you don’t research, if you don’t listen, you will never be a completed personality”, and it listened to us with his eyes open wide.

Acclimatization ultimately came quickly. The ‘child’ grabbed the interview recording device, found a photographer to be his company and started making stories of successful -in their own art- people. Those stories stray away from the misery and introspection of those troubling times.

In some kind of magical way, top-scientists, simple professionals excelling in their art, men and women who fought hard throughout their lives before finding their own harbor, expatriates flourishing abroad but never forgetting their home-country, elderly living on Greece’s border islands and athletes who left the closed terrain of their sport and shine in other activities co-exist on our Internet ‘child’, on humanstories.gr.

We are very proud to have made a ‘child’ full of confidence, positive energy, and rich feelings of love, enthusiasm, transmissibility for your and our stories and the ones of the people ‘next to us’…

Nobel Prize winner, writer Odysseas Elytis had put it in a simple and understanding way: “If you take Greece apart, in the end you will have an olive, a vineyard and a ship. That means that with exactly that you can reconstruct it”. He sure must have known something…

We do have olives, and large ‘vineyards’ of ideas. Regarding our ‘ship’, it has already begun with great craving its journey to stories and people willing to share them and relive them! Human stories loaded with optimism…
