Irish Princess

Our 2023 Irish Princess is Ruairi Susman!


Her first name means Red-headed ruler in Gaelic. She's 16-years-old and a 5th generation natural redhead. As a native of Colorado she enjoys spending time with her family and friends in her community and in the beautiful nature areas of our state. Ruairi's family's Irish heritage has always been a source of pride and honor that they celebrate year round. Ruairi loves all forms of art and has her own art charity called "I am Not Invisible Art". Her charity helps Ruairi and others like herself with invisible disabilities to celebrate, embrace and advocate for themselves through art and self-expression. "After all," says Ruairi, "my disabilities may be invisible but I am not!"
