The Dream Share Project Comes to Bethel

2/21/2012

The Dream Share Project, an inspirational documentary film that follows recent college graduates Chip Hiden and Alexis Irvin on a road trip across America, made a stop at Bethel on Monday, Feb. 20.
     The purpose of Hiden’s and Irvin’s journey is to explore how successful people have chased their dreams. Along the way, the pair learns about topics like: discovering one’s passion, committing to a dream, dealing with setbacks, and redefining success for the Millennial generation. The Dream Share Project features eye-opening advice and anecdotal wisdom from an Olympic skier, one of the original Latin Kings of Comedy, a slam poet, a Project Runway fashion designer, the CEO of a sustainable flip flop company, and many more.
     The Dream Share Project is a film that encourages people to live up to their fullest potential and reject societal pressure to “play it safe.”
     The Dream Share Project was selected to become a part of the Creative Activist Partner Program with the Creative Visions Foundation.
     Alexis Irvin is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park, with a degree in journalism. Irvin wants to write, pursue social justice, create art, travel the world and leave it a better place than she found it. She blogs at her food and travel site, There She Goes, at www.thereshegoesblog.com.
     Chip Hiden graduated recently from Washington College with a degree in history. He has a passion for adventure, charity, music, and entrepreneurship. Hiden’s life mission is to wake people up to their potential. “Every one of us has a dream. Anyone can change the world,” Hiden said. Hiden is also the founder of the Chipapalooza Charity Concert.
     Hiden and Irvin were present at the screening of The Dream Share Project and took part in a question and answer session with Hiden and Irvin after the presentation.
