The young women's magazine based out of Medellín, Colombia takes an illustrated and well-written approach to the issues women face on a day to day basis. From love and sex to self-empowering articles from its collaborators, the magazine touches on the struggles and the beauty of being a young woman in the 21st century. On our latest adventure through Medellín, we found one of their #poramoramislolas shirts. Intrigued by its clever design, we were lured in and were able to talk one on one with the founder about this very important shirt and its campaign.
