On other barriers she’d like to break:
“I’d like to see more beauty campaigns for girls who are mixed Latina and black. And if I’m in them, that’s great, but overall there’s a scarcity there. Companies need to be more mindful of the world we live in and who their consumer is.”
On wishing she were curvier while growing up in Puerto Rico:
“Everyone does, especially when you’re younger and guys don’t like you because you’re flat-chested and have skinny legs. I would double up my socks so my calves looked bigger. But around junior high school, my attitude changed. I was like, It is what it is.”
… says 28 year-old Joan.
