Tim B. from Columbus sent us this story:
As a child, I fell in love with She-Ra first because She-Ra had a flying unicorn… But for me it was so much more. In junior high, I contemplated suicide. Without He-Man and She-Ra, I probably would have done so. But, they were there to remind me that I have the power! To this day, they are still my heroes reminding me I have the power.
I met Miss Britt at the first Power Con. After the panel, she had her signing session and, before I even handed her my DVD set to sign, I told her the impact she had made on me and how she had saved me from myself many years ago. She proceeded right then and there to get up from her chair and give me a hug and a kiss! I was so moved. Even as I write this, I am starting to tear up. She told me thank you for being there to tell my story. And then proceeded to sign my DVD set “To Tim, For your honor,”
I got a second chance to meet Miss Britt at the 2016 Power Con. I played Bow in a He-Man/She-Ra fan film and after the film was over, I bought the She-Ra tiara that had been used in the film and well, since I believe Miss Britt is She-Ra, I figured why not take the tiara with me and hopefully get a picture with her wearing it. So I did and I actually wore the tiara the first day of the con. When I walked up to her table, her first comment was “Oh my goodness, that is so cool! Can I wear it?” I WAS FLOORED! I mean she’d already been told my story and now here she was making this convention the most awesome convention of my life. She put the tiara on, which is very heavy and let me snap the picture. After I took the picture, I thanked her and began crying in front of her again. I reminded her of my story I had told her before and she remembered me. She had me come around behind the table and we hugged again. She gives the most awesome hugs! I kissed her hand, she wiped a tear from my face and we hugged again. Miss Britt is a treasure and anyone who is a fan of her should make the time to see her if the chance arises! For the honor of Grayskull! Melendy Britt is She-Ra!
You’re the awesome one, Tim!
