Intro Letter by Katerina Kuss

Just as the name suggests, Revelo is a tool to reveal and uncover stories.

The concept of Revelo was born from the desire to bond as a community and learn more about the inspiring people who surround us—the everyday heroes with extraordinary journeys. These individuals shared their backgrounds, passions, heartaches and struggles, triumphs, and future goals with us.

To take the storytelling concept a step further, each interview has been video recorded at the very moment the subject was speaking. For every article you read in each issue of Revelo, an extended video version of the entire interview is available here on our website.

The goal of Revelo is to create a unique experience for audiences from all walks of life. Together, we aim to educate, inspire, and lift up those around us by exposing the “why” behind what motivates the people of Lancaster.
