I’m so excited to start this site and share it with you! Mighty Fine People is a celebration of incredible individuals who have done extraordinary things, often without most of us knowing about them. Our first profile is of Lynsey Addario, an award-winning photojournalist who has covered conflicts and crises all over the world. Not only is she a remarkable person and a great subject herself, she’s actually the inspiration for this site.
When I first learned about her in 2015, I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of her before. I try to follow the news and do a good deal of reading, but I didn’t learn of her until I heard her on the Radiolab podcast in 2015. Here was an accomplished, fascinating person who had done incredible things over nearly two decades of work, and I didn’t even know her name. I decided to start a site where I could feature people like Lynsey Addario – people who deserve more recognition for the things they’ve created, built, and shared.
I hope you enjoy learning about Lynsey Addario and will come back to see more profiles in the future. I plan to post a new one about once a week.
