The New 97.7 Woman Of The Week - Week of April 23, 2018
Name: India Lee Rubino
From: Medford MA
India was born in Boston and raised on the North Shore in Salem, MA. She is a 26 year old stay at home mother to a 20 month old son. She has an incredible story, when India was just 8 weeks pregnant she was diagnosed with Cancer (Non Hodgkin Lymphoma).
She received chemo throughout her second trimester and is now 17 months in remission. Her son was born 6 weeks early but is now healthy and that is what matters most.
Despite her health setback she has continued to strive for greatness. She started an organization five years ago called INterracial INspirations. The organization was designed to create an everlasting image of diversity. Those involved are of all different races, ages, and gender. It doesn’t matter and as a whole they make a interracial group. She organizes fashion shows and photoshoots for regular every day people, aspiring models, hair stylists, make up artists and clothing designers to help them with exposure and to also promote the message and the brand of the organization.
Her hobbies include modeling which she has been doing for almost ten years now and she has also been competing in Pageants for the last 8 years. India is firm believer in paying it forward so community service and volunteering are something that she takes part in as often as possible. She started a photography business about 2 years ago and in addition to booking paid gigs, she makes sure to give back to her community. She understands that not everyone can afford a great shoot for their family portraits or their children so India makes sure that she donates her time to 3 families per month! She also mentors a few young ladies currently and is a pageant coach as well.
Her goal in life is to inspire you today, so that you can inspire someone else tomorrow.
