My Passion for The Lotus Light Children Charity and The Love International Film Festival
What inspired me most about Lotus Light Children’s Charity, is the genuine compassion and love for our World, the unequivocal, all-encompassing respect and adoration towards ALL life: regardless of ethnicity, gender, color, religion, political choice and life choices. We stand with and we speak up for those without a voice. We uplift, support, educate and reach out to our Communities with love and respect; we are a sisterhood, a brotherhood, a Global Community.
The Lotus Light Children’s Charity has a genuine ‘sister mission’ to what Silvernight’s purpose has been all these years in Humanitarian and Philanthropic Movements, and I’m proud to be engaged with such an empowering Organization.
A Few Words About Heather S. Michaels
It all began with Heather’s early days in the broadcasting industry, when she was inspired by the incredibly talented and very entertaining, ESPN’s Chris Berman and the conservative, influential broadcasting icon, Barbara Walters. Eventually, Michaels was able to achieve several exclusive broadcasts, most especially the very first exclusive interviews with O.J. Simpson, even before her colleagues, Barbara Walters and the late Peter Jennings.
For over 20 years, Heather Michaels has covered many incredibly inspirational stories. Heather Michaels has been a TV broadcast personality, producing a significant amount of sports programming and telling legendary stories through the eyes of the most famous sports stars in history. Heather was one of the first female personalities to break the barrier in the world of sports and entertainment journalism and has an incredibly insightful way of telling a story. Having been a pioneer in this industry, Michaels is an established presence in broadcasting and only gets involved in worthwhile projects that strike a chord with her. Michaels’ talent for telling the story in an even handed and compassionate manner has helped to shed light on extremely controversial topics.
Michaels has a very unique and rare connection to her guests, and her kind and genuine way of connecting with them is endearing while still being informative and entertaining. They trust her, they respect her, and they speak openly to her in a way that is rare to see in broadcast news. Regardless of the degree of controversy, Michaels’ subjects open up to her and want to tell their story. Even the most unsettling story has a message and may help to save one individual. This is the primary reason Ms. Michaels continues to reinvent how we see sports, how we see and embrace programming and entertainment both in the sports and news world. By always staying true to her virtues, ethics and morals, Heather never compromises who she is and has always been well respected. Having worked with the most controversial and most difficult personalities over the years, Michaels has a very real connection to her audience and especially to her celebrity guests because they know she is genuine, open and sincere in how she will tell “their” story. Heather nurtures the creative endeavors of others and is respectful, appreciative and supportive of her colleagues, in helping to bring exposure to their efforts.
