Robert Hearn - Happy Dude
My name is Robert, and I am one happy dude! Having travelled to 90 plus countries I discovered long ago that a smile is the same in every language. My brand, You Can't Steal My Happy, was conceived in 2011 when I was visiting in the US Virgin Islands. While waiting to catch a ferry from St John to St. Thomas, I was treated to some island drama. A local had just been evicted from his home and he decided to let everyone know just how he felt about it. Using a black can of spray paint, he graffitied "You Can Steal My House, But You Can't Steal My Happy" on the building. I certainly don't condone this behavior, but his message struck me as very powerful. I decided at that moment, I would remind everyone that they have 100% control over their happy- no person, situation, or thing can steal it!
The images on my apparel will hopefully inspire you to get out in play in this world that I call my playground. If you are up for some adventure then join us on a life changing happy tour to one of our exciting destinations. I hope you will join the "You Can't Steal My Happy" movement by showing the world your smile.
I have always loved to travel. I grew up spending many of my summers in Colombia, South America, visiting my grand parents, aunts uncles and cousins. My immediate family lived in LA as my parents and three elder siblings had immigrated from Colombia before I was born. The travel bug hit me hard once again during summer between my freshman and sophomore year in College. I sold all my belongings, bought a Eurail pass and went to Europe for three months. During my visit to Ios, Greece I met a Swede who would eventually become my husband. Once I arrived back in LA, a deep depression set in as I could not imagine a life of not traveling and I was completely broke. I decided to become a flight attendant, it was the perfect fit for me and continues to be a job that suits me perfectly. I am beyond thrilled to have met Robert. I love the philosophy behind YCSMH and I am thrilled that he has provided the perfect way to share the Quintero family farm in Armenia, Quindío. I am so excited to be a Happy Embassador and to share the magical beauty that Colombia has to offer.
Twenty years ago this Brazilian applied to become an International Flight Attendant looking forward to meeting new people and going to exciting places.Upon until today, my heart still beats faster as I land at a new destination.
Three years ago Ireland called, in fact, Be aware, as it does just that, as I have experienced and seen many people feel called to Ireland, again and again...
Since then, I have visited four times, hiking and biking and I am super excited to have you come along.
I am honored to be your Happy Ireland Ambassador, and I am looking forward to this incredible trip, where we will learn the history of this gentle island, meet with it's welcoming and wicked funny people, dance to Traditional Irish Music, bike beautiful Killarney National Park, hike the beautiful Dingle Peninsula and be enchanted by it's gorgeous sites!!
Hello World Travelers! I am Cynthia and would like to share some of my happy with you. I Consider myself an adventurer and explorer at heart, always living life to its fullest extent. Love to have fun and share new experiences with people from other cultures and paths in life. I have always dreamt of traveling the globe since I was a young. This is why I decided to go to school and pursue my dream of traveling in the airlines. Hence my career choice of being a flight attendant for nearly 10 years has opened a door to the world to me. Is always an adventure to discover new cities and new things to do, when I go to work. Is a thrill to research and launch myself out there to find new places. I like to learn new languages, I’m fluent in Spanish, Italian and also can speak a little French. I love to challenge myself, when i go to other countries and do new things. Also love the outdoors, and the freedom it makes me feel. I also love animals. I feel so honored that Robert has given me this opportunity. It will be my absolute pleasure to be your happy ambassador. Together we will make this time an unforgettable memory. Live Life, See the world. - Cynthia B
My name is Becky and I’m a enthusiastic Happy Ambassador who loves people and LOVES to travel. No really, I do. I am a native Floridian who loves the outdoors and enjoys all things water related. My favorite hobbies include scuba diving, hiking, cooking, photography and learning about wildlife. I enjoy a good book, a good beer, a good laugh and good company, but I also love adventure and I’m always ready to roll with the punches. Having been employed with a major US airline for four years (and counting), I am excited to expand my travel horizons and take advantage of every opportunity to see this big wide world we live in. I always dreamed of traveling as a child, and my globe was my favorite possession. My goal is to eventually visit every country in the world! I was fortunate to travel on a You Can't Steal My Happy trek to Uganda, and I can honestly say it was one of my favorite travel destinations. The people and the overall beauty moved me so much, and I am honored that Rob has trusted me to lead future trips to Uganda.
Hello HAPPY people!! My name is Barbara and I am so honored and excited to be a new Happy Ambassador. My travel journey with Robert started 4 years ago and I just finished my 9th Happy trip. I never traveled before because I never had anyone to go with. Now I’ll go on any of these trips by myself because there are so many adventurous, fun people on all the trips. I’ve made so many amazing new friends and look forward to making many more. It’s hard to put into words how AMAZING and LIFE CHANGING these trips have been for me. I have completely stepped out of my comfort zone by zip lining, repelling into caves, snorkeling, learning to Boogie board, river rafting and even eating the leg of a scorpion!! Looking forward to more amazing memories

“Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.”
We feel privileged and honored to be the newest Happy Ambassadors. Our zest for life, fun and adventure has enriched our lives in unimaginable ways. For instance, on our Happy Trips to Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Croatia we not only had unique experiences, made lifelong friendships, but came back changed in the way we look at life. When you open your hearts and mind to the people and places in front of you, it transforms you.
Steve and I bring a combined 67 years of working for American Airlines. We look forward to sharing an entirely new level of Happy with you!!!
