Aia Polansky has been featured in major editorial and broadcast news outlets including FOX, CNN, NBC,
Good Morning America, and more.
Aia, mother of two, is a charismatic and authentic inspirational speaker who served in the Israeli
special units. Following her service and additional training, she became an investigative detective, then
was hired by a former Israeli chief of police to work on global security projects.
As the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, Aia has always been a proud public advocate of the Jewish
community. She has organized protests and activities in Boston to support Israel, and is active on social
media channels with the goal to spread more awareness of anti-semitism.
As a mental and physical fitness motivator, Aia was positively influenced by the global uproar that arose
when she successfully pinned down a flasher on Memorial Drive in Boston after being assaulted while
running. Additionally, with the influx of security concerns in public spaces in recent years, Aia’s
experience and knowledge in safety and security drills could prove itself invaluable. Following her
international and viral media engagement, she has been invited to speak at several relevant events. She
has made it her mission to empower and educate others moving forward to embrace self-empowerment.
