Good morning @childrensplace: Respectfully calling on you to design clothes for #boys & #girls that promote excellent #values. The dangerous #dumbingdown of boys! Why promote dark characters that wield #WEAPONS? (#ElPasoshooter) Why promote laziness & unhealthy eating? 1/x
#Boys: Calling on you to stop promoting dark characters that WIELD #WEAPONS. Why promote #gangster #ninjas wearing red bandanas & mouth masks in a country w/ #gangs? What kind of a man will a boy who wears a "Bro by Day Ninja By Night" pajama set (featuring junk food) be? 2/x

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily
