Puerto Rican, Black and Proud Super Model Joan Smalls

During Fashion Week Joan Smalls was named number one super-model.  The Root.com shares a quote from Smalls, “I just have something to prove,” #Puerto Rican-born supermodel Joan Smalls told W Magazine in July. “I know I’m representing a group — Black, #Latin, whatever you want to put me with — and I want to show that they are beautiful the way they are. I think that’s really important for our youth to see.”
