I see beauty. Last night, I squeeze into cab with my fabulous, new 82 years young friend after she dragged me out of my pajamas to play an impromptu song at the Friar’s Club.

I stared at the word “uncrushable.” That’s how Lourds describes her friend, but reality is that Lourds is uncrushable, especially in her mission to help others find their inner superhero. Lourds is the book, music and lyrics writer of the Broadway-bound musical, “Chix6” – a story about a female comic book artist who learns how to love herself with the help of her own superheroine creations. She’s also the founder and creator of the SuperYou FUNdation, impacting tens of thousands of youth in schools globally by helping them realize “the Superhero is YOU.”
