RenewMe influencers are unique entrepreneurs, specialists, athletes, artists, and movers and shakers making headlines who are committed to making a world of difference by sharing an authentic interpersonal connection with their followers to spread the mission of hope, inspiration, and life balance.
An authentic, deep, interpersonal human connection is a powerful thing, but it’s something often lost with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Yet, even in this in this digital and socially distanced age, it is still possible to liberate ourselves from the crutches of “masks and character armor” we use in society, to reveal and heal our most vulnerable inner worlds, thus paving the way for us to do great things. RenewMe Ambassadors do just that, fully revealing themselves and providing intimate portraits that include glimpses into milestone “alone” moments encompassing both their tribulations and triumphs.
By sharing inspiring personal narratives of healing and transformation each RenewMe Ambassador shares their unique take on shaking oneself out of personal stagnation to find and clarify one’s life intentions. Like butterflies emerging from their cocoons, RenewMe Ambassadors share a common mantra – that one can renew and reclaim their lives. RenewMe Ambassadors inspire us that we can, in fact, be the authors of our future, and lead more balanced and happy lives.
Liane Boyko is a model and actress out of New York and Boston who loves fashion and collecting stilettos. She has also held a deeply kept secret many years, which caused her to silently suffer in ways her photographs did not portray. Liane is afflicted with condition Alopecia, an autoimmune disease that attacks hair follicles, causing hair to fall out in small patches, some of which can connect and become noticeable. She spent her life in shame trying to deal with it, hide it, experiencing hair loss, regrowth and then the disappointment of it falling out again. Attempts to conceal the bald spots with hair extensions, a hat or wig didn’t always work. Indeed, once she even got fired from a modeling job because of it. But, after 20-year battle with Alopecia, one day she finally decided to reauthor a new story for herself, one where she didn’t have to mask her condition. This is Liane’s RenewMe story.
Liane finally decided it was time to conquer her feelings of helplessness by boldly taking control of the situation—and completely shaving her head. “I can’t believe I had to do this,” says Liane, “but this is something that I feel I need to do to feel good about myself again.” She credits her supportive husband and “amazing family and wonderful friends” who were there to support her, giving her the strength to create a new possibility for her life. By boldly shaving her head, Liane became her true and authentic self. In RenewMe fashion, Liane inspires us that being confidently beautiful begins from within. She now has renewed and re-authored life, and and her mission is to make an impact on others by helping them to be their true and authentic selves and taking bold steps to make changes to live better and more balanced lives.
