Ruby Veridiano’s Glamourbaby Diaries Workshop Documentary Inspires the Next Generation of Young Female Leaders
[SAN FRANCISCO, CA SEPTEMBER 11, 2012]- On September 19, 2012 writer, speaker, and media personality, Ruby Veridiano will release her documentary that chronicles The Glamourbaby Diaries workshop; A writing workshop that focuses on the leadership and personal development of tomorrow’s leaders through the lens of fashion. Through this workshop, Veridiano aims to inspire young women to be visible, relevant, and significant not only in their communities but also on a global scale. The release of the documentary is part of Veridiano’s “Redefine Glamour” campaign, in which she asks women from across the globe to look at glamour as a definition of character, rather than a fleeting media standard. Veridiano hopes to shatter the unrealistic standard of beauty that has become deeply ingrained in society, and become a role model for Asian-American women, and other women of minority backgrounds, through these projects and initiatives.

We had the best time ever painting this alley in the Mission District. The neighbors were so thankful gave us food, drinks and smiles. The wind and cold weather was a bit harsh but having positive people showing their love for what we do, made the it so worth while!
Oh and this guy in the hot rod was burning rubber for us!
Photo love : Merlot and Agana!
“A few weeks back I got the news that someone painted over the recent all female, Few & Far production on Gower Street in Hollywood. This was a real surprise to me especially since I have been organizing the painting of those walls for so many years.” Rime-
