“I needed to write, to express myself through written language not only so that others might hear me but so that I could hear myself.” ― Gabor Maté
Why Uchi? Why Connection?
Uchi was created to help make conversations easier. Even with all of the tools and platforms to communicate, we still felt our relationships could improve with the people who matter most to us. We felt like we wanted and needed a deeper connection.
Uchi ( /ü-CHē/ ) means “in-group” or “inner circle”, in Japanese. The Uchi app is a Q&A platform for connecting with YOUR people. Simply answer any of the fun and insightful questions from the Uchi database and read the answers your friends (i.e. your uchi) share. You can also create your own public uchiTopic of questions or a private uchiTribe of questions and people! Imagine the possibilities with your family, friends, clubs, and co-workers.
Long before the Covid-19 pandemic it was apparent that people, even in the same home, yearn for closeness. Now, with physical distancing, we need meaningful connection more than ever!
Make your time online count.
Put an end to "endless" scrolling.
REAL sharing w/
only YOUR people.
Uchi is not therapy or counseling. Our goal is to provide a platform that 1) “guides communication” by providing starter questions and 2) is 100% private so ONLY your friends can read your answers. Say goodbye to cyberbullying, trolling, and predators!
Think of Uchi like those card games where you sit around a table and share answers. Now, you can do it online, anytime from anywhere. Sure, there’s effort in writing but that’s what makes it count. It’s incredible how much more expressive we can be, in writing, and how much better we can listen. Imagine the people who matter most to you really hearing what you have to say.
Finally, a platform where you can “share the real you”… and be heard.
