We are a community of struggle. We have dealt with depression, suicide and addiction. We were hopeless. Now we know another world is possible and we’d like to offer that same grace to you.
Brittny Habibti – Founder + Creative Director
I’m the founder of Open Our Eyes. I firmly believe in the correlation of salvation and love, music the way some people believe in fairy tales and six impossible things before breakfast. I don’t eat or wear animals because they’re my friends. Only two seasons exist to me: summer and almost summer because nothing compares to the feeling of sand between your toes. In addition to Open Our Eyes, I am a music + fashion Publicist. I also blog daily. As a result of my gypsy soul, I’m addicted to change and was born for leaving. I have a huge heart for Africa, Palestine, LGBTQ community and young women knowing their worth. I don’t believe in being comfortable or a calm course of existence.
Kat Morrissette – Community Wizard
I handle Community Outreach for Open Our Eyes. I am a believer in love conquering all things. I am fiercely independent and no matter where I go you’ll find a book on me in some way, shape, or form. I like yoga and yogurt and rice and beans and chees–no, wait. That’s not mine. I’m an anxious, neurotic university student with a family and great friends. Open Our Eyes shows me that I’m not alone in my neuroses and I am determined to give back to it.
Anne Marie Sullivan – Band Aid
When I’m not busy drooling over Liam Payne’s abs, I help handle Music Outreach for Open Our Eyes. I’m currently 22 years old and working on getting a bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders. I drink obscene amounts of coffee, spend too much time reading and daydreaming. I’m ambitious, loud, and out of control. Working on living life with no regrets, and being the best version of me I can be! Why be someone else when you can be yourself?
Annie Buell – Online Content Fairy
I handle all things Social Media for Open Our Eyes – so you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest. I’m studying writing at Point Loma Nazarene University in the paradise that is San Diego, CA. I love, love, LOVE social media. In my spare time I force myself to write, google clean-eating dessert recipes while inhaling California burritos, and endlessly scroll through Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Foodgawker. I’m very excited to be a part of the team at Open Our Eyes and to help make a difference in young people’s lives.
Elizabeth Tolbert – Blogging Queen
I manage Open Our Eyes’ blog. Live music is my favorite thing in the whole world and I believe it can truly heal people, if only for that moment. I also write for The Indie Place and am a former Disney Cast Member. I studied in France for a semester in college and miss it every single day. I’m obsessed with hair dye and Harry Potter, and I have a 15 year old cat who is the love of my life. I believe in living positively and want to help others recognize their own importance in the world. Music connects us all.
