Who We Are

About Author

Born the first of November 1980, Maggie Jo Smith grew up in the countryside of Ramona, County of San Diego, California. As a child, she loved competitive contact sports as much as the performing arts. Maggie was the first female wrestler and high school football player in the town of Ramona.

Later in her 20s she earned the name MagiK, given to her by her friends. They said that when she was a around scientifically unexplainable things would happen.

 “My legal last name of Smith makes me cringe. It was forced upon on my ancestors after savage pilgrims slaughtered and imprisoned my people. Who wants a daily reminder of that? So, when I met my partner and king, Rob Diamante I was happy to take his name. People always ask me about my title as Queen. I explain that royalty is designated by thoughts, actions and intent rather than by blood. (Not that the two are mutually exclusive.) Rob is a King in his own right not because he is my partner. Both of our missions is to help others earn their crowns!”  

She states:

Due to her Native American roots, Maggie has always had a deep connection to Gaia, the Mother Earth. She never hesitates to dive into her swimming pool fully clothed to save a drowning bee. In fact, Maggie is completely committed to bee advocacy and environmental protection and activism.

Despite being dedicated to the performing arts her entire life, she never considered herself artistic. Her first bee totem, “Bee Cautious California”, was made from items she found, including trash, during a stroll in Solana Beach, CA. After arriving home, she emptied the contents of her pockets onto a table. While lost in conversation, she stacked the items as one might mindlessly doodle.

 “I looked down and was like wow that actually looks good.” On that day her first totem “Bee Cautious California” was born. “I see them as puzzle pieces, part of a final design known by the creator. I start without any intention and simply follow the path laid out before me”

recalls MagiK.

Suffering from debilitating depression, Maggie spent almost a decade confined to her bedroom. Going months without human interaction and weeks without showering. At times she was near death, she once developed a bedsore the size of a sand dollar. Believing her family was better off without her, she did everything within her power to try and push them away. However, no matter what she did her Mother Kathy refused to ever let go. It’s only thanks to the strong foundation that her mother instilled in her as a child, combined with her unwavering love & support that MagiK Maggie is alive today.

“As painful as my trial & tribulations were, I am very grateful for them. For it is those experiences that shaped me into who I am today, and I am Amazing!”

She accredits her years of turmoil & isolation for her unique perspective of the world. One that she says enables her to better connect with and help others.

“I have survived the world of unending darkness & I found my way out! Now I am living my Best Life & I just want to help others do the same. After all what better way to start off one’s Best Life, than saving the Earth?”

Infused in every Bee Totem is my Mantra:

Love, Loyalty, Honor, Humility, Honesty, Modesty, Integrity, Divinity, Destiny, Charity, Majesty, Unity, Serenity, Spirituality, Safety, Hope, Humor, Halcyonic-Harmony, Grace, Goodness, Gratitude, Fortitude, Kindness, Compassion, Balance, Altruism, Drive, Tribe, Community, Teamwork, Patience, Persistence, Passion, Positivity, Long-term Potentiation, Morality, Punctuality, Temperance, Respect,   Justice, Freedom, Peace,Trust, Courage, Sacrifice, Surrender, Mercy, Music, Wisdom, Love, Magik!”

Who We Are

OUR
MISSION & VISION

  • Our Mission
  • Our Vision

A flourishing global bee population co-existing with humans that embody Bee Amazing’s bee totems’ inspiring titles.

 

 

 

To protect the bees by providing educational and entertaining, multi-faceted, interactive experiences which also inspire mankind to bee amazing.



Issue Statement :

Bee Amazing provides interactive forums with a call to action on how to save the bees and educate people of their necessity and current endangerment. This is done through passing legislation that removes harmful chemicals threatening the bees, international festival-like music productions, educational and entertaining school assemblies, selling of “Bee Amazing” merchandise such as bee totems and posters, relocation of urban hives, and funding bee gardens.

Elevator Pitch: Bee Amazing is my nonprofit that works to pass legislation outlawing the use of particularly harmful chemicals to bees. As well as, providing educational and entertaining interactive events for people of all ages.

Legislation:   “Bee Amazing”, in conjunction with Emerald Ambassadors Inc, has come together to write, fund and pass legislation outlawing particular chemicals known to be harmful to bees, specifically neonictides.

Festivals: Bee Amazing will soon have an educational and interactive booth where people can view the bee totems as well as make their own “Bee Bracelet.” This will be used at festivals throughout the world to spread awareness of the plight of the bees.

School Assemblies: An entertaining and educational show followed by a make your own “Bee Amazing Bracelet” that can be worn or gifted to others with the trait you’ve listed. For example a “Bee Kind” bracelet. The goal is to not only educate kids on what bees do for us, but to also inspire them to Bee Amazing themselves.  

Bee Totems: A unique creation from “Bee Amazing” founder Maggie Diamante. Each piece is a combination of local earth materials showcasing a deceased bee, used to honor the bee’s life and spread awareness of their plight. This Art display is a draw for people at festivals, assemblies, and musical extravaganzas.

Merchandise: “Bee Bracelets” and photographs of bee totems can be silk screened on to hanging tapestries and shirts.

Relocation of Hives: We help people and businesses pair with a bee hive removal company to pay for the relocation of any hive that has been marked for extermination. We find land where theses hives can be relocated to and help facilitate the process.

Bee Gardens: Bee Amazing website will list flowers that attract bees as well as tips to bring other pollinators such as butterflies to help encourage the usage of local wild flowers that are vital to the bees.

International Musical Extravaganza: We provide a “Burning Man style party” with high vibrational music to accompany fire performers, aerialists, and LED performers. The walls of the venue will be covered in large boards that inform people of everything the bees do for mankind. Packets of seeds will bee handed out to those in attendance.

Customers: Attendees of music festivals and dance parties. School age children.
