Celebrating our femininity!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need everyone to be aware of it.

This post wants to celebrate our femininity and how special is to be a girl. These are a few girls I photographed in my travels this summer. Youngsters, surfers, and old mermaids, we're all exposed to this problem.

Normally a pink ribbon brings awareness to the problem. But what if besides wearing a ribbon we do a little more?
Don't forget to aware your woman tribe around you, go to your annual check, and know how to explore yourself. And if you can, donate, donate!!
