We live in a time where everyone is a brand and what that means is constantly changing. And Dominican American blogger and photographer Denisse Benitez is no different. She takes us through her branding journey and why she’s leaving the land of bodegas and botánicas, aka northern New Jersey, for Arizona.
Plus, we get into colorism in the media industry, all the shit she got for dating a white guy and how her outspoken self stays centered even though she grew up in a religiously conflicted home. Spoiler alert: We found out we have a Bruja in common because the world is that small!
And, find out why we call her the Cardi B of blogging and photography, how to value yourself and make space for yourself as a women of color. Because as Denisse said, “Equality is not isolating yourself. Equality is "Move the fuck over, I belong here.”
