Oprah calls them ‘Carriers Of The Light’. They are #OWNers, #OWN Ambassadors & #SuperSoulers.
I met each of them through twitter, through our common love of ‘Super Soul Sunday & all things OWN. All with a common interest to learn, grow & heal. They epitomize what my show KirstyTV is all about ‘sharing your story so you can heal yourself & heal others’. We invite you to watch their profound, personal videos below & please help us share and tweet the links below.
Interview 1 – Paolo Presta’s life was changed in three different ways by Oprah Winfrey. From working at his family’s grocery store to hosting his own talk show, A Spoonful of Paolo, coming out as gay and healing from a child molestation. Paolo sits down with me and shares how she helped him live a truthful life and pursue his dreams in the entertainment industry.

Interview 3 – Ken, also known as “Ken Like Barbie” seeks to erase the stigma that shames so many who live with the HIV virus. A self declared #emotionalnudist this man wears his heart on his sleeve & you can’t help but fall in love with him.
Interview 4 – Amy
Drunk driving with her children is where her story to recovery and forgiveness began. Amy Baumgardner is a wife, a mother & a recovering alcoholic who is sharing her very personal story with us at KirstyTV. The accident was a huge turning point for her, eventually leading her to meet Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant on the Oprah Lifeclass show.

Interview 5 – Lonnell Williams is a LGBT advocate and supporter, he has a huge heart and spirit to help others. He shares with us, his own personal story of coming out as a gay man; the highs and lows of the journey. How he told his father that he was gay and how he came to accept that he was gay.
My fav line from his interview – ‘OPRAH has tweeted ME ! I wen’t nuts, I was like a maniac, August 12th we have an anniversary coming up :)’

I was in the habit of telling God how to bless me. But my thinking is so much more limited than the creator’s. #KirstyTV
