To celebrate the invaluable marks play leaves on our lives, National Geographic will be producing a fascinating series of videos for the Real Play Coalition called #PlayMadeMeThisWay, featuring the stories of a number of extraordinary individuals. Through testimonies and revisiting memories, the videos will reveal how play during the formative years have had a life-changing impact on who they grew up to be, which has made them ensure their children have the same quality play that they did. This first video of the series features National Geographic Explorer Aaron Huey and his 8-year-old son, who became youngest published photographer in National Geographic magazine at the age of 4.
