I Sing Myself

This is an embarrassing confession, but when I was younger I've spent too much time wishing I was taller, skinnier (don't we all?), blonde, and having an eye color other than poopy-brown. I was too plain.

I've (mostly) grown out of these insecurities, and try to appreciate and celebrate the way I look- after all, it's a part of my heritage, my history, and my culture.

So, in celebration of embracing myself, I'd like to share with you a Filipino model, Charo Ronquillo.

While she won third place in Ford's Model competition in 2006, she seems to be MIA lately. Hopefully, we can see more of her in the future.
