Getting Candid with Rochie Ep.10: Featuring Trina Palana-Soledad

October is a very special month for me because it is also known as Filipino American Heritage Month. To celebrate this occasion, I decided to feature amazing Fil-Ams who went “outside the box” and in process made significant contributions not only in the Filipino community but as Americans as well.

In this episode, I’m so honored to have the beautiful and inspiring Trina Palana-Soledad. She is a model, cookbook author, health and wellness coach, entrepreneur and body positivity advocate. Not only did she made headlines when she walked the runways of the New York Fashion Week in 2017, this curvy woman made history by being the very first petite plus size Filipina model to grace the highly coveted event.

In this episode, we chatted about:

  • Growing up as a “big” kid in the Philippines
  • Issues with weight, body image and the concept of beauty
  • How we can be our “best” selves
  • Her top 5 beauty tips
  • Believing in one’s self and how dreams can do come true.
