May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Ella Hicks please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Ella Hicks please stand up?

Change can be weird on all accounts. When I first started social media I knew it would be a big risk for me. Putting myself out there in the public arena is not exactly safe for a woman/mother who is living in “hiding” from her abusive ex-husband. No more stalking please! Getting “out there” and sharing my story was the only way I figured that I could stay sane and make some sense out of what my life had become. So I took a leap and started a blog and called it Rebel Thriver because I was determined to not get to comfy in my survivors coat. I wanted to upgrade to a thriver and in order for me to do that I…

What a great first week it has been for Rising Stargirls! We kicked off the workshop “Universe: More Than Meets the Eye” at Irving STEAM Magnet Middle School in Eagle Rock, CA. Many thanks to the enthusiasm and initiative of Irving’s Esther Lee – who saw a need for a Girls STEM club and created one, reaching out to me to help kick it off with a 3-week astronomy workshop. We meet Mondays and Wednesdays for two hours after school, Feb. 18-Mar 9.

On the first day of the workshop the girls received their own “playbooks” – individual journals that they use to record their responses to questions I ask (such as “do you talk to your friends and families about science?” “Do you believe that you can do well in science”), do free writing in (“Write for 5 minutes. The topic is ‘I am thinking of’.”), and draw…

The Power of Expressing Your Love


Hello Anne,
I found this post very helpful and insightful.It’s amazing how much we loosing by letting fear overcome us. I think a lot of people suffer from doubts. How little or big they may be, these doubts may stem from past experiences, hardships and preconceived notions and expectations. Both stemming from within us and those who are close to us, the influence both negative and positive, leave behind strong impressions and habits that forms layers around our hearts, core values and the way we think. Working from within our self and discovering the power we have in making powerful changes in our attitude towards life, the people we meet, and the habits we may have deliberately or inadvertently picked up holds the key to begin the process of unlocking the doors to liberating our hearts. It all begins with the very simple exercises you described, a simple touch to a loved one, a smile to a stranger walking by, a phone call to a friend with whom you have lost touch, through taking on a inspired project at work or in your community, to transform a current crisis into a magnificent new life. These little steps can go a long way in liberating and unleashing the innate and wonderful power of Love that waits within every heart. As humans we strongly underestimate how vital an element Love is in realizing our purpose, dreams and those of the collective Humanity around us.
Thank You,
Best Regards,
