Have you ever moved somewhere new and started all over?

If you have, you know how overwhelming it is to plant new roots and navigate a whole new community. Three years ago, FIORIA’s Hair & Makeup Stylist Ginger Bay Makeup invited me to Frisco Arts Ladies Who Launch. I knew two women and felt so overwhelmed. But I LOVED the heart of that event. I think Becka Brady was the invited guest speaker, publisher of Frisco Life magazine. She shared her story in such a transparent way, and the host Tammy Suh Meinershagen did a wonderful job asking heartfelt questions.

I knew this was a community of women I wanted to know better. Then COVID hit.

Fast forward to last night…

I’ve been working on a special project for the last five months, a NEW FIORIA magazine celebrating the resilience of our Rising Phoenix women and families. I applied for the Ladies Who Launch, Frisco Arts Grant to help fund the project, and we WON! The magazine arrived just in time for us to share it with everyone!

That’s it, right there!!!

They gave the most wonderful evening to celebrate FIORIA and the resilience we photograph in others! It was at the beautiful Davio’s restaurant! I got to share parts of my story. We laughed, cried and laughed even more!

“You get a car! And you get a car!”

We had an Oprah style moment, where we surprised everyone!!! We did a FIORIA Luxury Gift Certificate giveaway. But we didn’t tell them until the end of the night that we also taped a winner underneath a chair at every table! When the women realized it, the energy in the room was ELECTRIC! They jumped up and said “I’m a WINNER! I WON!” It was the BEST!

This was so special! This beautiful lady has been following our work and my TV shows for almost fifteen years! I felt like I was having a reunion with an old friend! What a special gift to meet her in person last night!

Feeling at Home, Surrounded and Thankful

I can’t imagine a BIGGER HUG from my local community than the one those women gave me last night to celebrate the Frisco Arts Grant. What a journey it’s been since we moved to TX.

Last month, we celebrated getting the cover of Frisco Life magazine and the wonderful article on how FIORIA celebrates the resilience in you and your family! This month it was the Frisco Arts Grant!

My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude for our local community! What a gift!

We are all Rising Phoenixes together! And it is breathtaking!

What is a Phoenix Experience?

Have you been wanting to do something transformational just for you?

Fioria makes Frisco Life magazine cover! by Me Ra Koh

If you are overwhelmed with all the reasons why you shouldn’t spend time or money on yourself, I want you to pause and think of all the obstacles you have overcome in your life.

Have you achieved a weight goal, overcome a serious illness, been promoted in your career, or found healing from something painful in your past? Or maybe you’re turning 50 and feel the need to reflect on who you are and what this next season of your life has in store for you? 

The first step is to fill out this Phoenix form. CLICK HERE.

Meet Kristina who overcame cancer—not once, but twice. Even though she was thankful to have defeated this enemy, she struggled with seeing the scar that remained. Once she stopped to think about all of the incredible obstacles she has overcome, she realized that now was the time to celebrate the strong woman she is today. The Phoenix Portrait Experience allowed her to celebrate not only the healing but also embrace this scar. Now every morning Kristina wakes up to see that brave, powerful woman on her bedroom wall. Nothing will ever stand in her way again.

Crystal drove to us from Las Vegas.

A single woman who has always been known for being responsible and quiet, yet there is another side of her that wants to come out. A side that is brave and takes risks—that believes she is worthy of doing something special not just for others but for herself too. Every time Crystal looks up from her computer in her home office, she wants to be reminded of that part of her who is beautiful and brave.

Both these women have something in common, they were ready to …

Rise above the ashes of what other people have said
Rise above their fear and doubts
Rise above what life has thrown at them

… and embrace their beautiful Rising Phoenix within.

Through our Portrait of a Phoenix Experience, they not only did something special but transformational.

I want to invite you to experience it too!

The Portrait of a Phoenix Experience includes:

  • Professional Hair & Makeup
  • Wardrobe Consultation & Vision
  • Phoenix Photo Shoot with Me Ra Koh (Sony Artisan, Disney Host, and Live with Kelly & Ryan Guest Expert—You’re in good hands. I will pose you, drop shadows and light on you in the most flattering way that radiates your Phoenix Rising.)
  • Reveal & Custom Design Session with our In-House Design Specialist
  • Beautiful Artwork of Your Phoenix Rising, Custom Designed for the Best Place where it will Speak Truth to You Every Day.

CLICK HERE to fill out the form and begin your Phoenix Experience!

Can’t wait to speak soon,
Me Ra

p.s. Thank you a thousand more times to Ladies who Launch and the Frisco Arts Grant!
