One time for the Curvy Chicks! It has been one hell of a week in Chunky Chickz World but I’m glad we can end the week on a good note!
Dascha Polanco of #OITNB fame was honored with her very own day in New York City on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. Aug. 8th has officially been declared “Dascha Polanco Day.” On Tuesday Mayor Bill de Blasio honored the actress during Dominican Heritage Night, he presented her with a proclamation dedicated to her philanthropic impact on the Dominican community, her groundbreaking career as a Hollywood star, and for opening a theater program with The Dream Project in her native Dominican Republic.
Dascha took to Instagram to share her excitement, with a video clip from the ceremony and a caption that read.
“Today was an honor to have the Mayor of NYC & the First Lady celebrate my culture. It was a moment to embrace, they honored me today with a proclamation that today 8/8/2017 is DASCHA POLANCO DAY in the City of NY. I’m proud to be a Dominican raised in Brooklyn. #selflovery #ismellgood“
That is MAJOR! Congrats!!!
