Rising Revolutionaries

Tyson Wheatley

I believe everyone has an interesting story to tell – and every story is worth listening to. The people I chose for this project aren't household names. They aren't "famous," but each one is doing or making something to be an integral part of these revolutionary times we live in. My hope is to lend a voice to these rising revolutionaries.

The people I chose to highlight challenge what it means to be revolutionary today. Oje Ihonvbere, a UX designer and photographer, embraces three nationalities – American, Canadian, and Nigerian. Through his work, he is helping to create and improve the digital products people use every day.
