Name: Tania Quinones
Hometown: Long Beach, CA
Current profession: Professional Model and Make-up Artist
Future plans (where do you see yourself in 5 years):
I see myself being the head make-up artist for a popular music artist and a sought out commercial model. I also see myself married with 2 boys in 5 years. :)
What attracted you to become part of this project?
My grandmother died of Cancer and although it was not breast cancer, it still raised awareness in myself to constantly get checked via a doctor and pay attention to your internal body. Getting a mammogram is something we constantly over look because it is not stressed in the media as it should and for many who do not have health insurance, it is often times difficult to get checked. Im praying that there will be affordable clinic for screenings one day here in the States. RAISE AWARENESS!!!
Have you or someone you know been affected by breast cancer?
I’ve had various friends that have survived breast cancer and some clients as well.
Is there anything else you would like to say about breast cancer and/or breast cancer research?
I think its amazing and I hope this raises more awareness and brings attention to women and men of ALL AGES, SEXES, AND RACES.
