Meet Nina. An excellent person who knows the value of friendship.
Our first meeting has an interesting story: one sunny day during walking in Brooklyn, I and Giorgi found a cozy and beautiful hair studio. From the street, we saw few women in the working process their. Suddenly Nina looked at us. We noticed that she was Georgian. We discovered it not according to appearance, but according to look. Georgians have a very specific look :) We became friends and visited Nina's studio very often.
A little history about Nina: she arrived in New York 20 years ago, completely alone, I don't want to pay attention to what difficulties she had for herself. But now she has the best result, as her hair studio is #1 in Brooklyn for last several years.
Nina is energetic and hard-worker! Starting from my visit to the United States, until now she keeps me motivated, as she is an example of how our goals can be achieved following to hard working.
Also, she is best friend, daughter, sister, specialist, leader. A warm and caring person.
During my stay in the US, she supported me a lot. She introduced me with many interesting people. Among them was Craig Diamond, the owner of my favorite restaurant, who was very fond of working on wood. Craig has given me the opportunity to work in his workshop for a few days, of course, absolutely free.
In her studio, Nina promoted my products and offered to her customers. One of the first collections of bow ties were presented in her Studio. This tradition is still preserved :) Now we are far away from each other and sometimes a couple of weeks pass without communication. This does not prevent us from friendship. I am grateful to her and appreciate this person very much!
Kindness is transmitted! The power is in unity!

Red Cross volunteer Jodi Malane’s resourcefulness and humour have stood her in good stead this year, after emergencies of her own to cope with. The Gold Coast, QLD local suffered a stroke on Anzac Day, leaving her with almost no movement whatsoever on her left side. Jodi has worked hard to regain mobility while not stepping away from her longtime voluntary work, a commitment that was triggered by the devastation of 2004’s Boxing Day tsunami. “My view is there are always people worse off than me,” she says. “There’s always got to be a reason to smile.”
