If you’ve been the parent of an American elementary student, chances are pretty good that you’ve met “Flat Stanley”. In a really fun educational experience, children bring home a picture of a guy who looks like this:
…which they then color, cut out, and mail to people that they know who live in other places, along with a request to mail back a photo with Stanley experiencing their part of the world.
For example, here is a photo collage of Flat Stanley visiting Dubai:
and Sydney, Austrailia:
The students, upon receiving photos of Flat Stanley, get to bring in their photos and learn, in a personal way, about other parts of the world.
Recently, I’m starting to experience Flat Stanley deja vu with a very serious twist; this time with a more sophisticated subject: “GLI Mike”
In June, 2012, I was featured, wearing scrubs and surgical loupes, on Good Morning America, and performed Scalp Micropigmentation on “GLI Mike”.
Having never been on National Television before, this was a truly nerve-wracking experience, particularly since a man’s head was on the line’ and a whole lot of people were watching.
In front of 3.9 Million Viewers, Mike was transformed in a single day through the miracle of GLI Scalp Micropigmentation into a man who, though already handsome, looked fully 15-years younger.
Doesn’t he look amazing? Yes I did, girl.
And, I completed Mike’s procedure while under the pressure of having a videographer not only filming constantly in my procedure room but, at times, he was even leaning on me!
I am very proud of my work on Mike. And, here is what Mike looks like now, in the real world:
Well, despite the extremely public nature of Mike’s procedure, I now see GLI Mike popping up, much like Flat Stanley, all over the world.
