Happy Tuesday Darlings! Today we highlight fashion blogger Veronica Brown. She is the Founder of CreatorPlug.com, a blog site that shares the stories of creatives around the globe. Veronica is Afro-Latina. She is strong and beautiful and represents a sub-division of Latina’s who are overlooked and judged by the color of their skin and texture of their hair. She lives above the stereotypes and choses to lift up others instead.
