When we think of a “girlboss”, we think about someone who is always on the go, full of plans and full of future and that’s the case of Anita Fabiola, an actress, beauty queen, television personality and entrepreneur, who divides her time between showbiz and changing women’s life with her Fab Girls Foundation, an NGO that focuses on creating awareness to the issues faced by the girl child. Anita, who started once as a beauty Queen, has overcome her pageants personality to become a strong force in the industry.

With different projects right now; a tv show coming up, her partnership with Afripods, and a beauty and hair line soon to be lunched, she is opening her way in USA where she is hoping to show the world her charisma and talent; “we all grow up knowing America is the land of opportunity, but everywhere is the land of opportunity if you work towards your calling”, she added.

Her path hasn’t been easy, but she has managed to get the opportunity to work with the best, creating a name for herself and a prosperous career. When it comes to impress the crowd, there’s no one better than Anita, and that’s exactly what she did when she was the host on the 2016 BET Awards red Carpet in LA, a moment that has made her one of the favorites of the public, “these events are very important to black people culture and the Entertainment and Music industry in General. They give us a chance to control our narrative, tell our stories, inspire and get inspired by each other, learn and most importantly bond and come together”.

As her fame grows and her career rises, she gets to collaborate with amazing personalities, last time was the chance to work for the amazing photographer Nicholas Mark Imagery, and she might not have broken the internet like Kim Kardashian did, but she definitely caught the attention of people who wanted to know more about her, “shooting with such an incredible photographer, his artistic vision and professionalism is totally incomparable. I had so much fun and it was totally out of the box for me”, she said. But wait, didn’t we see some topless photos there? Oh yes we did, and she feels nothing but proud to have done it “the thought of it freaked me out so much, but he made me feel so comfortable and confident enough to do it.” And if you are looking forward to see more collaborations of this, today is your lucky day, according to Anita, we should expect more of this in the future.

But her life has showed her that the best job she can do is helping other women to feel better about themselves, like she once did, and specially become an inspiration for those who now feel in a dark place “I was inspired by my own story to start this NGO. When I went through everything I went through in 2015 and managed to pick myself back up, with strength and confidence, I knew then that I wanted to help other girls there dealing with issues I dealt with or even worse”. That’s her real passion and what inspires her to work in this field.

But even if most of her future projects are still confidential, we should expect to see more of this Fab Girl: a lot of success coming her way, and a long path to inspire others.
