Meet the Team

Toan Lam, creator & host
My truth is: I believe we all have a superhero power, it’s our responsibility to use it to the fullest capacity to be better and do better for ourselves and others. My power and passion is to inspire you to find your power — the thing that makes you excited — and activate it.
I dare people to: Trust YOUR truth! (I dare you!)

Rae Palermo, producer and content strategies
My truth is: I believe when we stop compromising who we are, our true self will emerge naturally. I also know unhappy journeys never end in happy endings, so get in your feel-good flow now.
I dare people to: Be seen and not care who’s looking!

Nina Pollock, editor, publisher and in charge of booking
My truth is: I am a composer who is trying to expand the ways in which I utilize my skills and talents.
I dare people to: Get out of their comfort zone and dip their toes into anything that seems intimidating.

Kevin Lee, web producer
My truth is: We are created with a purpose — to be loved and to love others
I dare people to: Take a step of faith and see the incredible doors that open up when you engage with others.

Shirley Pan, production assistant, video editor and social media
My truth is: I’ve always been a perfectionist who stresses out about every tiny detail, who defaults to the worst case scenario. Through the past year, I’ve learned to look at the best-case scenario — “What if I don’t suck?” Never go into things thinking you can’t do it. Think about how you can make the impossible possible.
I dare people to: Give yourself a pat on the back and give yourself a little break. You are doing perfectly fine. Rest up and try again.

Calista Tee, production assistant and social media
My truth is: A pessimist turned idealist — I was always blaming external factors for molding me into who I was. Now I have learned to take charge of my own values.
I dare people to: Slowly lift up your shutters, have an open mind and invite more like-minded people into your life.

Lada Kondrakhina, production assistant
My truth is: I used to be a pushover who would let other people tell me how to live my life and how to feel. At some point, it finally occurred to me that I have to take control over my fate…and I did.
I dare people to: Be fearless, because life is too short to hesitate and doubt yourself.
