Stranger 47/100 – Isabel

100 Strangers - IsabelOur next stranger was on break for the day in Charlotte with her friend — stranger #46 Katie.

Meet Isabel.

Are you also a flight attendant? “Yeah, we travel together.”

What do you do when you’re not working? “Just meet up with my friends, go to cinema or shopping. I live around Munich, near the center, so there’s always a lot of stuff to do.”

Are you looking to go to university? “Right now, I’m going to university, but I’m not actually studying this… I like Chinese Sinology and the History of Arts, but I’m not actually doing those. Right now I just started being a flight attendant, and that’s my actual thing to do.”

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Just not take everything too serious. If anything happens, just say ‘it’s not the end of the world’. In the end everything will be good.”

What would you do if you had a million dollars? “Maybe buy lots of houses and then let other people live there, so you have like a lot of money your whole life and for the next generation. Yeah, and just go with all my friends shopping and just traveling a lot.”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “I put too much pressure on myself.”

How would your friends describe you? “I think open minded {laughs} and maybe funny.”

Stranger 46/100 – Katie

100 Strangers - KatieIt was one of those days where I didn’t get any stranger portraits and was leaving empty handed. On the way back to the car, I ran into our next stranger and my luck suddenly changed.

Meet Katie.

“I’m actually from Austria… Innsbruck. I’m a flight attendant.”

What do you do when you’re not working? “Meet up with my friends, go to the fitness studio {laughs} and just chill. That’s it.”

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Just use every chance you get in life and be open to everything.”

What are your goals? “For the next couple of years, be a flight attendant… I started two months ago, so I’m really new at this job. I really want to work at BMW.”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “My biggest challenge is to decide what I want to study back in university because I don’t know yet. Maybe Economics…”

Technical Notes: We were in a shady plaza with no direct light. I used a reflector to bounce as much light as possible onto Katie’s face.
