GREENWOOD, Del.- What started as an Instagram post prompted the creation of a wall at Woodbridge High School that features more than 800 inspiring quotes on index cards.
Chase Marvil, an upperclassman who wanted to "make the world a better place," started "The Inspiring Project" to do just that, inspire as many people as possible including peers, adults and family members.
This project started from what many people considered "inspiring Instagram posts" in December 2013. Marvil said many peers reached out to him after this post asking for advice, looking for someone to chat with, or even just to thank him for sharing some kind words.
Marvil said he spreads his positivity and helpfulness over social media with nearly 2,300 followers on Instagram and more than 5,500 followers on Twitter. He has projected that he has been able to reach 15,000 people worldwide, with the number growing every day.
This project has caused peers to tweet inspiring messages with the hashtag #theinspiringproject as well as the creation of a wall in the school showcasing more than 800 inspiring quotes.
Marvil's main goal is to reach out to people and add some positivity into their lives.
"I want to help teens and even adults feel like they have more opportunities in life," Marvil said.
