I think the first time I saw this descriptive it was being passed around as an email sometime in the early 2000's. It is now making the rounds on social media and if you haven't seen it, it is worth a read and a laugh. I haven't been able to find an author for the piece so will throw it out there with a plea that if you know from whence it came, tell them we are still laughing at it today...
Meet Angelica Kenova. She is a child psychologist and model from Moscow, Russia. Most of her life she has been aspiring to become a Barbie doll. She appears to have achieved her goal, and I only have one question. Why?
Here’s a look at some interesting events that took place on this day in history:
1841 – The US Supreme Court rules that captive Africans who had seized control of the ship carrying them had been taken into slavery illegally (More info)
1916 – Pancho Villa leads nearly 500 Mexican raiders in an attack against Columbus, New Mexico (More info)
As a 16-year-old, Galia Slayen made a life-size Barbie out of wood, chicken wire, paper-mache and -- of course -- two big balloons as way to deal with her anorexia.
Now, four years later, Slayen is a sophomore at Hamilton College and is using the massive (but freakishly slim) doll she built to start a conversation about eating disorders and body image issues.
