Bon Voyage

with Freakie


Everything changes and we have come to the final edition of LargeInCharge magazine.  I am sorry to see it go but I am very excited for the things that Raqui will be doing instead.  She is a constant source of inspiration as an artist, as a woman, as an advocate, and as an entrepreneur.  She is one of those rare people who go after their dreams and make things happen. 


I want to thank her for allowing me to contribute to the online magazine and I hope we find something to work together on in the future.  I also have to thank her for always being so nice about having to chase me down for my monthly contributions!  I have always looked up to Raqui and the more I know her the more my respect for her grows.  There is no shame in her game and she is an excellent role model for women everywhere.  She doesn’t wait for life to come to her, she reaches out and grabs it.


As a fat woman of color the world says that the odds are stacked against Raqui and what she wants to achieve. Don’t believe it!  She is a testament to the BBW community that dreams can be achieved when you stop listening to the naysayers and believe in yourself.  I can’t wait to see what she does next!
