I am really obsessed with this Dominican model Arlenis Sosa. She’s only 19, and was discovered less than four months ago in Santo Domingo while walking to school. In the short time she's been modeling, she's has already become the first Dominican model to appear in seven spreads of Vogue (including the all-black issue). She’s also walked for many amazing designers like Carolina Herrera and Oscar De La Renta. I love this fierce Mamma. In an article from a Dominican news paper she states, “I have lots of dreams, but most importantly bigger dreams for my country I have opened a foundation to help with the good health and education of the children of my country”. The newspaper also writes that, “The “Arlenis Foundation” will help children with diabetes and HIV/AIDs together with the Nazareno church which she belongs to. They will also be donating school supplies to children. With this gesture she has become the first model to open a foundation at the beginning of her career, donating some of her earnings to the least favorable.” (Translation from The Fashion Spot)

What a sweet and beautiful girl. Maybe BeautyLogic will have the pleasure of interviewing her during Fashion Week.
