Emma Hearn/These Moments Captured
Emma is a photographer & artist local to the Metro Atlanta area, attending high school at Brookwood High School in Snellville, Georgia. She is a strong believer in loving others deeply for who they are not just what happened to them in the past.
“I love people. I love days where I can sit and talk to someone for hours & her them pour their hearts out when telling me their story. I believe that everyone is unique and everyone deserves to feel like they are a masterpiece. There are a million things I want to do with this sweet life of mine but most of all I just want people to know they aren’t alone and they are always enough.”
About Tiffany Krumins:
Tiffany Krumins is the CEO, founder and inventor of the Ava the Elephant® brand. Ava the Elephant is a talking children’s medicine dispenser that takes the fear and anxiety out of administering medicine to children.
Tiffany’s passion for helping children has been evident through her years of experience, including the work she’s done with children who have special needs and with childhood cancer patients. It was that same passion which brought Ava the Elephant to life! She realized no product on the market resolved the common problem of giving children medicine. She took matters into her own hands and created the first Ava the Elephant from sponges, fabric and a store bought medicine dropper. After seeing the profound effect it had on children she knew she was onto something.
After her life changing experience on ABC’s “Shark Tank” she returned home with her investment from Barbara Corcoran and started the process of launching a product. In the midst of it all, Tiffany was diagnosed with cancer three months after the show (at the age of 27). This personal heartbreak only made her passion to help sick children even strong.
