By attending all of our events and continuing to support us with their time and expertise, they have shown us how dedicated they are to us and inspiring plus size women overall. Last but not least, I want to give special thanks to my business partner Valery Amador, which many of you think I made up, lol… No, she’s very much real and is a HUGE part of the success of this publication.
