Marine Kirstie Ennis grew up with military parents and always knew she would join the Marine Corps and it was no surprise when she did at 17. She became a Helicopter Door Gunner, "...the most bad to the bone job in the Marine Corps you can possibly have."
While she was serving in Afghanistan, a mission to transport fellow Marines and supplies became a life-changer. Kirstie's copter crashed and she suffered multiple injuries, including the loss of her leg.
During her recuperation, she turned to sports for motivation and found a way to help others. She took on the challenge of climbing the 7 Summits (the highest peak on seven continents), extremely challenging for anyone, much less an amputee, and raised money for the non-profit, The Waterboys, who bring clean drinking water to communities in need. When she successfully reached the summit of Denali, the highest peak in North America, she also raised funds and awareness for the Building Homes for Heroes program.
But Kirstie isn't close to being done. Most recently, she participated in the "Pin-Ups for Vets" calendar, where she faced her loss of self-esteem due to her injuries. "Its taboo to sexy, taboo to be attractive if you're in a wheelchair, or you're in a prosthetic, or you're disabled. I was fearful. I want to be the one where people can own their differences."
Follow her journey of recovery and learn how she has regained her confidence while being a role model for others who also face these difficult circumstances.
Cindy Crawford is a long legged bomb shell who can make an ordinary can of Pepsi seem like gold. Her famous 1992 Pepsi commercial turned everyone into a fan. For this year's Super Bowl, Cindy re-created the famous commercial with help from the very funny James Corden. The parody started out just like the '92 version, but the babe in the video isn't Cindy this time!
I have fallen in love with coffee all over again. When I read 'world's youngest barista' I thought maybe it was a 12-year-old. Nope. Tucked away in the Colorado mountains, Adler and his dad serve up cuteness and coffee. Bindle Coffee's cutest barista is a mere 3 years old. He makes a mean cappuccino under the watchful eye and caring hand of his father. The talented and young coffee maker seems to love his job. He is too cute. Adler, I'll have one cappuccino please!
