A Girl with a Mission


A strong, independent spirit is the best way to describe Rebekah, who is on her way from Fort Worth to Chicago for her second mission trip. When we asked why she chose a zebra pattern for her prosthetic leg, she replied, "Everyone looks at my leg anyway, I figured I might as well go for it." We say, you go girl!


Amtrak challenged Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, to leave New York and capture #AmtrakStories from across the country. For 31 days, we'll share one new portrait and story each day on our blog in celebration of the customers who ride America's Railroad.


This is brilliant. I have a proposal for you Amtrak, having to do with storytelling + travel. What's the best way to get in contact with you?
