Diablo Rose for Little Princess Trust


Name:  Diablo Rose

What is your job?
I'm the Creative Director at Le Keux Vintage Salon and Le Keux Cosmetics.  I do all the branding, design and packaging for the business and am the manager or our Leeds salon where I am also a vintage hair and make-up stylist.

What social causes are most important to you?
I want to try to encourage empowerment and self confidence in women, the confidence to live your life by your own rules and to always be yourself. It's so easy to get pigeon holed, or made to feel you need to look/act/present yourself in a certain way in order to fit in or be treated in the right way. I want to help people find that self belief, that they can do whatever they put their mind to, whether that's something 'small' by putting a little streak or colour through their hair all the way up to becoming their own boss! I get so many women tell me they wish they had the confidence to do this or that and I always say that if they love it, then go for it, do what makes you happy. We all deserve to be ourselves, in all our quirks and differences!

The Ike Foundation: Take A Kid Fishing


Name: Mike Iaconelli  
 
Describe your profession: I fish professionally. When I say that, most people think of commercial fishing like what you see on Nat Geo. But I’m a bass tournament angler. My job really has two parts. The first is actually competing in bass tournaments all across the country. Like golf or tennis, I have to compete against other top-ranked professionals in the world. The second part of my job is representing and promoting various brands and the products they produce.

What social causes are most important to you?
I have a few, but youth fishing and fishing awareness are my top two.

Moniece Slaughter for ALFALIT

Moniece Slaughter
What is your job? Currently, I co-star on Vh1's "Love and Hip Hop Hollywood" -- Season 2 premieres Aug 31st. This season, I will be dropping a new music video and EP.

What social causes are most important to you? I'm all in for equal rights for women which will still do not have in the United States -- the Equal Rights Ammendment is needed to protect women from sex discrimination.

What charity do you support?Alfalit, it offers programs in literacy, basic education, preschool, health, nutrition, and community development to the poorest  in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Portugal, and the United States.

Why do you have a passion for this one in particular? Is there a personal tie?As a mother, I am hands-on in my son's education, and teaching him how to read and write. Illiteracy is a global epidemic that results in so many other serious socio-economic issues.

Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved? Absolutely. Visit www.alfalit.org and support their programs.

Quick list of your tattoos?  Floral half sleeve. My son's bday in Roman Numerals. Supreme on my rib cage. My son's name. Butterfly on my hip. Dragon on my back. Dollar sign behind my ear.
