Fearlessness is not really about the absence of fear. It is more about respecting fear’s presence and then kicking its ass. That’s how Nicole Condrey faces all the things in life that could cripple her with fear if she let them. It’s how she didn’t blink at traveling to new places to perform her duties as a Foreign Services Officer. It’s how she learned to leap out of planes, and then to strap fireworks to her leg, and explode them out into the sky while sailing to the ground. She met the love of her life as she learned the latter, and for a brief moment in time they lit up the sky together. Then her husband began to suffer from a deadly disease that took Nicole right along with him on a rollercoaster of tumultuous times.
