Going above and beyond my comfort zone was the aim that I had for this project. I wanted to think outside of the box and interview someone whom I have not known for a great amount of time. After brainstorming about which person I should seek to interview, the thought finally occurred to me. Over the past few weeks, I have downloaded an app from the Apple iTunes store onto my iPhone. The app, Stigma is a social networking app that allows you to anonymously obtain pen pals.
