Hillary Clinton is a Human of New York

'I’m not Barack Obama. I’m not Bill Clinton.'

People were reminded on Thursday that Hillary Clinton is human and has ties to New York.

The former senator of New York and current Democratic nominee for president was profiled on Humans of New York, a website that began in 2010 as a photography project.

In the first post, Clinton addresses the perception that she is "cold" or "walled off."

“I had to learn as a young woman to control my emotions," she said. "And that’s a hard path to walk. Because you need to protect yourself, you need to keep steady, but at the same time you don’t want to seem ‘walled off.’ And sometimes I think I come across more in the ‘walled off’ arena."

In the second post, Clinton reiterated the different challenges a woman in a male-dominated career faces.

"Because who are your models? If you want to run for the Senate, or run for the Presidency, most of your role models are going to be men,"the post reads. "And what works for them won’t work for you. Women are seen through a different lens. It’s not bad. It’s just a fact.

"It’s really quite funny. I’ll go to these events and there will be men speaking before me, and they’ll be pounding the message, and screaming about how we need to win the election. And people will love it. And I want to do the same thing. Because I care about this stuff. But I’ve learned that I can’t be quite so passionate in my presentation. I love to wave my arms, but apparently that’s a little bit scary to people. And I can’t yell too much. It comes across as ‘too loud’ or ‘too shrill’ or ‘too this’ or ‘too that.’"

Clinton participated in a televised forum held at the Intrepid Air & Sea Museum on Wednesday night.She and GOP nominee Donald trump were given about a half-hour to answer questions from Matt Lauer and veterans in the audience.

Humans of New York often gets social media attention for itsstories and photos of everyday people.
