Sunny is BEAUTIFUL!
Okay, so Rewrite Beautiful (aka I am) is laggin' just a little bit in the Beautiful Girl of the Week department...actually the whole blogging departments has take the back seat lately. I'm a big believer that on your journey to the top you shouldn't run yourself dry, so when the clock hits 6 and it's time to shut down work, I shut down and go home (or away from my desk...I work from home :) ) . Self Care is part of my Beauty Secrets ;) But, do not fear! Things are ch-ch-cha-changin' around here in 2012! We have some super duper rad new projects (including blogging) in the new year that I'll be talking about.
Now for our amazing Beautiful Girl of Week! She's so amazing, that she is also (or completely) a HIM! It's our wonderful, talented, inspiring, fuel for the engine, Workshop Leader, Sunny Siu! Sunny is our first, ever MALE Beautiful Girl of the Week! That's right, reproductive organs do not disqualify you from being beautiful! And I just had to honor Sunny for all of the incredible
work he has done with Rewrite Beautiful this past year! Sunny originally found us through our facebook page and said to himself, "What in the world is this girl doing? I want to be apart of it!" Besides having the courage to join the crazy's like me on their ambitious missions, Sunny is insanely gifted. For one, calling him creative is like calling the ocean 'wet'. Sunny oozes creativity! He has some huge and far out visions for Street Art projects that truly blow my mind. We collaborate on his awesome ideas and collaborate mine and the rest of the volunteers. We have gotten some pretty sweet workshops from it! Sunny also created some amazing pieces of art for the TELEIOS Art Show this past summer. They were incredibly moving and many people who have suffered from eating disorders told me that they felt that he captured the disease with precision.
So in order to be "beautiful" you must also be "kind" and "strong" which Sunny definitely carries in all of his interactions with others. Often times Sunny has been the only male at our workshops full of sometimes 20 + women who are talking about their inner most secrets and vulnerabilities. He has never experienced an eating disorder, yet his empathy for the disease and sensitivity to the workshop participants is incredibly genuine and heart felt. I speak on behalf of the volunteers and the Rewrite Beautiful participants when I say that Sunny is an incredibly beautiful human being and we are a 1000 times better of an organization for having him on our team! Thanks for being beautiful Sunny!
