POWERCHICK? Yes thats right Powerchick! A Powerchchick is defined as, A female whose ambition converts into success; who relentlessly works on turning her dreams into reality.
Deeply rooted in entertainment Christina Mendez is the grand-daughter of meringue King Joseito Mateo and so she was born to be extraordinary. A big dreamer from childhood, she has always wanted to be a model and in 2006 her dream came true. Now in between casting calls, she’s an activist for autism awareness, crawls after her 8 month old daughter, and attends a Yankee Game whenever she can! Its Fun, its hectic, its challenging, its life in the fab line!
Well, we’ve been tailgating Christina since her debut on BET’s Rip The Runway (a few years back) so, when we got the opportunity to meet her at New Jersey’s Full Figure Fashion Week last month we were truly beside our selves. Beautiful, gracious and powerful are words that come to mind when we think of Christina. Heres what Christina had to say about being a Powerchick, a title which she humbly accepts …
” I’m known for creating my own path in my career and because of my strong will and determination I’ve been able to succeed in what I want to do.”
Currently located in New York, Christina spent some time living in Atlanta, Ga while she attended Morris Brown College.
” Before I was a model I worked as a project manager for a major telecommunications firm”
“As a mom I wear NO MAKEUP, I dress in yoga wear and usually a baseball hat (Yankees preferably). I try to look and feel comfortable because I have an active 8 month old and a 15 year old . As a model I wear 5+ inch heels!”
