Who am I?

I am Diamonté Henriquez, a shapeshifting, carefree, people-loving Pisces from the first state in the United States! I am the crystal ball that you can’t fully see through. I love all things art, but I am a dancer at heart. I am an artist who loves meeting new people, understanding how they think, and pushing them to be their best selves. I am one child of 12, a big brother to 10, and the favorite to most of them 😝😂😂. I dream of having my own skincare line, and working doing something that makes me feel alive and closer to others. I want to be a model and actor, maybe even a tv show host! I am a particular, careless, smoky mirror, flexible, stubborn, attentive, daydreamer who lives to shine. I am a star!

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I love what this show is doing. I’ve never heard of or seen anything about it before today, but after seeing the ad, I knew this was something I would love. I love the message at the core of the show and I think it’s a great opportunity for some change where many of us have been wanting it for a long time. The fact they said they were looking for ordinary people really stood out to me and I think I am special in my own right, but ordinary in that same sense. Because we’re all special.

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

I would be an amazing role model for this generation because I embody love, acceptance and following your dreams. After contracting HIV, I learned to value myself and my life more than ever. I knew that I had to fight to be here and that life shouldn’t be taken for granted because many of us don’t have that option. I was fortunate to be born in a very supportive and loving family, and also in a time where medicine is available to help me live my life, so I promote gratitude. I advocate free-thinking, free-loving and doing what makes you happy, so long as it doesn’t hurt others. I have my insecurities, just like everyone else, but I am actively teaching myself and others to love unconditionally and be authentic and genuine in your truth. I also am very much me around many different kinds of people and don’t shy away from shining my light. I want everyone to know they have this power as well and are all shards of the same light.
