The Team

We are a community of struggle but we know another world is possible and we’re working together to make that happen.


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 and photograph weekly.  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 + young women knowing their worth.  I don’t believe in being comfortable or a calm course of existence.

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.
