Students of Loyola: Justin Rothschild

Students of Loyola: a take on the very exciting, emotional, and raw, Humans of New York. I want to capture the students at Loyola in a way that has not been done before. I want people’s joy and struggles to be out there, without forcing anything too much.


Meet Justin Rothschild



What are you most afraid of?


“I’m most afraid of failing. I feel like young people, historically men, but recently both men and women, are supposed to follow a set path of success. Graduating college is the first step, but a lot of people can’t, don’t want to, or don’t have the means to; of course this just sets them up to fail in our society. There’s a lot of pressure on the youth today to get a good education and find a good paying job. I think we’re doing a lot better to allow people to follow their passions, but sometimes passions don’t pay the bills. I’m scared to fail because I’m unsure what my success looks like.”
