    Empowering Women and Educating Children in Nepal with Maggie Doyne

    American philanthropist Maggie Doyne talks about the benefit of a gap year, finding purpose, and educating children in Nepal to create a better future.
    Guest Biography
    Maggie is originally from New Jersey and has dedicated the last 13+ years of her life to educating children and empowering women. Maggie created the BlinkNow Foundation to sustain, grow, and support Kopila Valley Children’s Home and School in Nepal, and to serve as a vehicle to share her ideas with young people, especially children in the U.S. Maggie believes that in the blink of an eye, we can all make a difference. At age 19, Maggie used her life savings to build a home for orphaned children in war-ravaged Nepal. Since then, she has helped provide a loving home to over 50 children. In 2010, BlinkNow opened a school for the region’s most impoverished children. The school now serves 400 students and is rated top in the region. Maggie was named 2015 CNN Hero of the Year.

In 2012, Maggie shared her story at the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, and in 2013 she received the Forbes Award for Excellence in Education. Her work has been recognized by  Elizabeth Gilbert, Katie Couric, and Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan of Sussex. While Maggie’s work as CEO is focused on Nepal, she speaks all over the world in the hope of inspiring others to start projects of their own that will generate positive change.

    From Jane’s Addition to Being a Rebel with Etty Lau Farrell

    From Jane’s Addition to Being a Rebel with Etty Lau Farrell

    Dancer and singer, Etty Lau Farrell, talks about being an artist, feeling like an outcast, and recovering from dark financial days.
    Guest Biography
    Etty Lau Farrell, vocalist for the band Satellite Party and lead singer-dancer for Kind Heaven Orchestra has made her first debut as a solo artist with the single ‘He’s A Rebel’– available today on all digital streaming platforms. Produced by her legendary husband, Perry Farrell, the godfather of alternative rock as co-founder of Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros, this song pays tribute as a cover by iconic 60’s trio, The Crystals.
    A Billboard #1 chart topper in 1962, the musical piece touches base on a well-revived classic love-story trope–the bad, socially rebellious boy, and the lovestruck, innocent good girl. The tune of the song begins with a dramatic twist, incorporating a rhythmic, 70’s beat to the original melody and leads listeners into the tantalizing strums of the guitar to make itself known, as Etty's heavenly voice begins to belt out the heart-warming lyrics. Transported to another world filled with romance, desire, and hypnotic instrumentals, the astoundingly constructed symphony of musical elements and ethereal vocals highlight the unmistakable talent of this emerging songstress. Although the unknown rebel The Crystals sang of remained elusive, Etty’s tune taps into her love of Perry and their together.
    Throughout her long and fruitful musical career, Etty has accumulated a multitude of hit songs with Satellite Party and Kind Heaven Orchestra, including ‘Wishing On a Dog Star,’ ‘Machine Girl,’ ‘Hard Life Easy,’ and ‘Woman in the Window’. Working alongside her husband, the duo have made a name for themselves outside of their individual music careers in the festival industry with his flagship event, Lollapalooza. Lately, Etty has been working tirelessly on their newest project, a nightlife concert series, Heaven After Dark; launched in Los Angeles on February 17th. With a growing following across her social media platforms expressing her own identity,, Etty’s charismatic, mischievous, and fascinating life has captured the hearts of her audience and amplified the excitement for this musical release.
