I stumbled upon The Do Not Enter Diaries the other day somewhere in the Twitterverse and just had to share it with y’all. If there’s anything that will inspire you to go after your dreams, it’s other teens making stuff happen.
The Do Not Enter Diaries is “an ongoing transmedia project” founded by teens Emily Cohn and Emma Orlow. They make videos (think MTV Cribs meets The Coveteur) that feature teens showing off their rooms and their stories. The idea is to share your personal space and style, which is a reflection of who you are and the things you do.
Oh and these girls are also so awesome that they’re aware having your own bedroom is a privilege. So they encourage donating to Habitat For Humanity to help teens that don’t have a roof over their head.
The Do Not Enter Diaries posts new episodes every Wednesday at 4 pm EST, and this week they’re featuring the super cool Tatiyana J. She collects Beanie Babies (bears only!) and African printed fabrics. She’s really into plants and even turned an empty lot into a garden.
I absolutely love this project. I wish I had this innovative as a teen! I hope y’all take this as inspiration to do what you love. Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams because you never know what will happen. These girls weren’t afraid and now their site is going viral and it’s totally awesome.
Have you heard of The Do Not Enter Diaries before? What’s your dream project? Tell me in the comments!
