About the project...

For and by NYC high schoolers, The Highly Indy Project is an uncensored, multimedia online platform for student voice and opinion, providing relevant content for NYC teens by addressing issues that impact us both inside and outside of school. The project is not advised or funded by any public or private school faculty, administration, program or organization.


Proof Schubert Reed and Maria Milekhina started The Highly Indy Project in the summer of 2017 after realizing that there was no communal place online for NYC high schoolers to share their ideas and connect with each other without the constraints of school/extra-curricular institutions. This project is like no other -- student-run and student-led. We are here for your voices, and we cannot wait to hear what you have to say.

If you're interested in joining the Highly Indy staff, contact us at highlyindy@gmail.com at any time and we promise to get back to you! (See this page for more info on getting involved.)

And head to this page to meet the people that make The Highly Indy Project what it is!



In order to do what we do, we need the financial resources to publicize our writers' amazing work and to maintain an efficient and beautiful look to our site. And we're counting on YOU to do that. If you're interested in making sure The Highly Indy Project stays alive and running, please donate to our GoFundMe! We're currently halfway to our $500 goal and we can't wait to get there with your help.


Any amount makes a difference. Thank you so much in advance.
