melissa ann, writer-All you need to know about me is I’m extremely elusive, and I’m not saying that I don’t have superpowers, but I would never admit it if I did.

“You do not choose your destiny, it chooses you. And those that knew you before Fate took you by the hand cannot understand the depth of the changes inside. They cannot fathom how much you stand to lose in failure...that you are the instrument of flawless Design. And all of life may hang in the balance. The hero learns quickly who can comprehend and who merely stands in your way.” – Mohinder, Heroes: Nothing To Hide (1.07).

marci gallagher, writerI’m a dabbler. I write stories, make art, create music, mentor, and commit science. Mostly I learn. Meeting new people is one of my favorite things to do because you never know what lessons they can teach you. Everyone has a story that is worth hearing. There is no better way than to learn through the pieces of life that others share with us. Lately I have become more interested in the unwritten stories of women. I spend my time trying to be a decent person and empower others to reach for the stars.
