Rona samson-tai,

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Contributors -

model, body im­age war­rior and fit­ness ad­vo­cate, stars in “flaunt it, fi­nally!” p.118. Dur­ing the shoot, she says, “i felt like a bomb­shell. i felt em­pow­ered and really happy, like, ‘Yep, that’s right, i’m wear­ing sexy pieces in size 18 and i still look damn hot!’” she calls it a “fi­nally!” mo­ment: “fi­nally! clothes that re­flect what i feel in­side! fi­nally, we have the op­por­tu­nity to show everyone that fash­ion and beauty are found in ev­ery shape and size.” rona wants peo­ple to see that plus size women can be fash­ion­able too—“we can be con­fi­dent, rock the heels, and be who we choose to be re­gard­less of our phys­i­cal at­tributes. i hope filipinos see that just be­cause we are our size doesn’t mean we have low self-es­teem or live un­healthy life­styles”.

“cosmo’s amaz­ing ar­ti­cles and tips al­ways as­sure me that i’m not the only woman ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a par­tic­u­lar prob­lem or sit­u­a­tion, whether re­la­tion­ship- or fash­ion-wise. cosmo has helped me em­brace wom­an­hood with con­fi­dence.”
