Chicdriven 2017


Women have always felt the girl driver shaming from time immemorial. We thought, what would be the best way to help women feel empowered these days?

A change of mindset towards positivity and respect.  That’s what we need. We don’t need to have the same choices or have the same opinion but we need to respect each other. Women play a big role in this because we have the direct hand in molding the next generation. This is call to action is called ChicPlus +.

Along with a special block screening of Wonder Woman at the Century City Mall, three ChicPlus+ ambassadors were introduced to a group of bloggers and social media Influencers; these are fashion and lifestyle blogger, Cat Arambulo-Antonio; Celebrity Mom, Model and Pet Lover Vanessa Matsunaga – Sunga; and popular Life Coach and plus size model Kimi Lu.
