Woman Spends 100 Days Without Fear in The City

Michelle Poler used to live within the confinements of her comfort zone, afraid of anything she knew she couldn’t control - from dogs to driving at night.

Luckily, the lifestyle of the City changed her worldview.

A few months ago, I moved to New York to start a Master's Degree in Branding at the School of Visual Arts. Trying to control New York has been a nightmare, but what really pushed me to pursue this project was not the controlled lifestyle I left behind, it is the frustration of not enjoying this city and life in general to the fullest. Since the unknown has proven to be so much more fulfilling than the familiar in these last months, I'm ready to let go, face my biggest fears, try to be completely vulnerable about it and enjoy the ride.

Poler’s project, 100 Days Without Fear, takes us on her fear conquering journey via vlogging. Her videos and commentary are genuinely inspiring and illustrate how letting go and branching out will aid in life enjoyment. Watch as she…
