Bringing to light under-recognized challenges, struggles, and setbacks formed through our identities.
Our program is designed to raise awareness to the struggles behind different identities, and the stories + science behind why people are the way they are. We’re all going through our own secret struggle, and in understanding these struggles, what we’ll find is that in a beautiful way, we are all connected and consequences of each other’s actions.
We support under-acknowledged causes that align with our mission. Themes are chosen based on severity of issue, relevance, and relatability with the help of our research community, as well as our readers and voters.

why join our research team
First off, you should join for the research. But beyond that, it’s about the community and working with colorful, inspiring researchers who believe in what you believe in, and about expanding your team and seeing the potential research has to change lives.
Lastly, traditional research is usually published within scholarly journals, limiting the audience to within specific fields. Our program is designed to help broaden the exposure of your research, and work closely with participants who are building a life for themselves.
To provide a space for individuals to reimagine their ideal selves and potential, and bring their visions to life.
We believe that our lives are our ultimate message to the world, and that the best way to tell a true story is to design and live a life one that you believe in.
Our accelerated program was designed using the Triple Alignment Model, with exercises you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Each cohort, we partner with specialized researchers & life coaches to build the best experience for our participants, and based on the theme of our research, we bring together 6-10 participants who share the identity. Together, we help build the structure, practices, and routines to bring each individual closer to who + where they want to be.
As the audience, we watch as individuals push and inspire each other to become better versions of themselves, each individual building their dream while knowing they’re part of something greater.
A major focus of this program is on accountability, and building the structure and a circle of people who hold you accountable to who you want to be. For this reason, we place extra emphasis on building the best teams and support systems for each individual.
why join our life design team
It’s about working alongside other experts and inspiring individuals to expand human potential.
It’s about the impact, and being able to see and follow each person through their thought process, hidden emotions and identities, understanding what makes them who they are, understanding their desires for their future and for life, and knowing that you’re helping them build a roadmap out of their own limiting thoughts and into their future.
And finally, it’s about taking your skills and experiences and bringing them to life in another person—to learn from their skills and experiences and let them bring to life a part of you.
Writing truth and magic into the intersection of real-life and imagination
We believe that research is best told through stories, and that stories are best told with a truth, imagination, and a little bit of magic.
how it works
Our team of journalists and creative writers follow each participant through their unique tales and, weave their collective stories together under one inspiring tale.
why join our creative writing team
“As a writer, what could be more beautiful than writing truth and magic into the lives of real-life characters? We’re standing at the intersection of fiction and non-fiction, with a pen and one extraordinary view to worlds outside our own.”
