Dawn Rubick - I call myself a Titanium Mermaid and I think that fits pretty well. Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, I somehow had a terrible fear of the water. I thought about it and decided that I did not want to carry the burden of that fear with me any longer. Standing up tall I proclaimed that I would be victorious! How hard could it really be? Victories sometimes come in very tiny pieces. Mine took 7 years and started with being able to get into a pool. Getting to snorkeling, IN THE OCEAN, was a huge accomplishment! Finally, after a lot of time, courage, tears, encouragement, and a whole lot of remembering to breathe, I got to scuba diving. As a birthday gift my husband bought me PADI diving lessons and a trip to Cozumel for our open water certification tests and a vacation. This was IT! I DID IT! It was scary and amazing.

Aria Morgan - I believe that Life is full of surprises, large and small, and sometimes, the most abundant bounty comes in the most unexpected form. As a young immigrant to the United States, I was teased for being a Russian Commie and ostracized for the weird foot I ate and clothes I wore. My shining light was the fact that my parents pushed me to study hard and do well in school and because I played classical piano, very well. While prepping to take the entrance exams for Julliard, Life handed me yet another surprise. It was my 14th birthday and I was walking through a crosswalk near my high school when a Suburban hit me at 50mph. The impact fractured and shattered the left side of my body and nearly killed me. I spent over a year in and out of the hospital, through many surgeries and various forms of rehab, including living n a complete body cast for 6 months. During that year, I realized that I never wanted to be a concert pianist and simply gave up that goal. I also realized that Life was a gift. To see, to hear, to think, to feel, to walk — these things that we take for granted, are a miracle. I began to see everything through a brighter lens and shared my Joy through my work.
