Happy 2019!

It is award season in Los Angeles and I did a special giveaway with KTLA, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and Glamsquad!

Thank you to American Airlines and United Airlines for publishing my stories this month! I had a story about high tech on the ski slopes for American Airways and the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death and the many exhibits in his honor this year for Hemispheres (United Airlines Magazine).

Thank you to Phil Laboon and Thrive Global for including in your #GRIT interview series! There is an old Japanese saying: “Fall seven, rise eight.” You have to fall down to rise up. Duckworth tells us: “Grit rests on the expectation that our own efforts can improve our future. I have a feeling tomorrow will be better is different from I resolve to make tomorrow better. The hope that gritty people have has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with getting up again.”

In November 2018, I went to DEMA a scuba diving conference and met Jean-Michel Cousteau, Wyland and the Women Diver’s Hall of Fame.
