The videos in this series document people with incredible levels of passion; people we admire; and who share thoughtful ideas about life, the pursuit of their dreams and the challenges to become Citizens of Humanity.
The people selected to participate in Just Like You represent a select group of innovators from a diverse range of backgrounds and interests—but who are connected by their abilities to overcome obstacles and learn life lessons along the way. From designers to athletes, chefs to artists, these people pursued their dreams in spite of the challenges and have become highly respected in their fields.
Legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan are the first two subjects in the series, and new videos will be released each month.
“As the company’s name suggests, our mission is to showcase the energy and passion of creative individuals,” Dahan says. “This film series has provided me with the opportunity to honor people who inspire me, and it is my hope that this series will also inspire others.”
Helping others is a core value of Citizens of Humanity and this series provides us the opportunity to broaden our reach and support more causes around the world. In exchange for participating in this series, each person who is profiled creates a limited edition T-shirt with Citizens of Humanity, and all proceeds are donated to the charity of their choice.
It is our aim that this series inspires people to pursue their dreams, supports others, and reminds us that we are all Citizens of Humanity.
