"El Nuevo Dia" Newspaper puts out their first Plus Size Editorial

I will never forget the date May 24, 2012, history was made in the leading newspaper in Puerto Rico "El Nuevo Dia" for our Plus Size Community, they put their first Plus Size Fashion Editorial in the newspaper. I woke up very early because the Fashion section comes out on Thursdays and there she was, looking beautiful and making me so proud. I had tears in my eyes while I read the article because finally, at this moment I knew that the lives of our Plus Size Models had changed forever in Puerto Rico although we still have a long way to go because there are still people that do not believe that curvy women can be beautiful too.The article was written by Liz Sandra Santiago, I found it to be excellent. The styling was done by Claudia Madrid, and the model Ana Garcia looked fabulous. This was a very emotional day for me because as a Plus Size Advocate in Puerto Rico I know how how hard these Plus Size Models try to get recognized, I talk to them a lot and some get so sad because they want people to notice them and  they tell me that they get bullied sometimes because of their weight..

I find this so mean and vicious but then I feel sorry for the people who do it because I feel that they are the ones with low self esteem! Congratulations Ana Garcia for a job well done, to "El Nuevo Dia" you have all my respect...and now I leave you with my favorite phrase of all times.....Plus is Beautiful!!!!
