Authority Magazine recently interviewed OCTO Safety Devices co-founders Natasha Duwin and Tobias Franoszek. The duo shed light on their personal and professional journeys, leading them to the creation of the OCTO Respirator Mask. Reflecting on the coronavirus pandemic, Natasha and Tobias shared thoughts on what it means to be a hero, the notion of heroism itself, and why heroes aren't a mythological concept - rather, an everyday reality. The interview comes at a time when we're still in the throes of the pandemic, yet a light is emerging on the horizon as vaccinations and a sense of civic responsibility increase. As Natasha and Tobias note in the interview, quoting Amanda Gorman: "There is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."
