Here is my kind wife, @jan­iceal­ida, on the cover of FASH­ION, with her friend Meghan. This pic­ture of a pic­ture brings me a lot of joy for three rea­sons. Firstly, sup­port from Jan­ice’s home coun­try means the world to her. It’s like a pat on the back from a par­ent. Sec­ond, the di­ver­sity is start­ing to look a lit­tle bet­ter on the cov­ers of ma­jor fash­ion mag­a­zines (I know many eth­nic­i­ties are still not rep­re­sented), and this is progress. Thirdly, there’s an Egyp­tian on the cover on the bot­tom left [of the news­stand]! It’s im­por­tant that mi­nori­ties are not just rep­re­sented in fash­ion and film but that they are get­ting the ma­jor roles, too. Con­grats, Jan­ice, on your first ma­jor Cana­dian cover. You have worked ex­tremely hard and you treat ev­ery­one the same, no mat­ter their sta­tus. I’m in­spired by your in­tel­li­gence, hu­mil­ity, drive and el­e­gance.
