I really don't have the words this time... I was featured in Spanish InFluential Magazine. For those of you that are unfamiliar, InFluential Magazine is an international publication with the mission to "capture emerging trends on the verge of shaping our world as exemplified through avant-garde leaders who inspire us on personal and professional levels. Their benchmark is founded upon identifying key elements that positively define cultural influence and significance.

I guess it goes to show you never know who is watching. When these photos were taken I had no idea I would later be asked fro my information for this publication. To be honest I' still processing what it really all means. I was featured alongside other Queens from Venezuela. If you are really into Pageantry then you know that the Guinness World Records recognized Venezuela with the honor of having the Most Consecutive Wins of the Miss Universe Contest. Contestants from Venezuela have a reputation for being fierce competitors and true Champions in their communities.
Wow. I feel so humbled to of been featured in Spanish Influential Magazine - I'm still in shock but I would be remiss if I did not take the time to say thank you.
Thank you Leo D'Almagro for your encouragement, wisdom and insight ... the push for me to share my light with the world. I remember the day of this photo shoot with Vogue photographer Bode Helm.

Some people look at my photo and the feature and just see a pretty picture ... its so much more than that... and that is why I tear up and cry when I finally have a moment to sit - Growing up I've always felt in my heart I am and my purpose was not limited to my surroundings. This is an international publication and I was featured alongside some of the worlds Best. To God Be The Glory. Beyond the Crown ... I am Rachael Yvonne Davis.
