Meet our Top 35: Monique Frausto of Curves and Chaos

For the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to our #WeAllGrow Summit Top 35. ¿Qué es eso? It’s a special group of blogueras that believed so much in #WeAllGrow Summit, that they jumped on the opportunity to grab a very specially discounted ticket within hours of our announcement. Because of their commitment and passion, we celebrate them now in a series of small, yet passion-filled, interviews. Monique of Curves and Chaos and Blogs by Latinas is a long time friend of Latina Bloggers Connect. Monique blogs about all things beauty, style and plus size fashion. Find out what growth means to Monique as a blogger.


1. What does the word "Grow" mean to you in your blogging career?

When it comes to my blogging career, to be able to "grow" means everything to me. It's all about learning and the desire to keep on learning. Because, there is always room to gain knowledge in our passion. I don't plan to ever stop growing. Whether it's my blog, writing, or my life.

2. What excites you about growth?

The joy of learning something new is what excites me about growth. To know that there is no end to gaining knowledge.

3.How can one community grow together?

I think the best way a community can grow together is to not judge one another and to help each other out. It's not about competition either. We are all here with the same passion and understanding of what we love to do.

4.How do you proactively help others grow?

I think the best way I can help others grow is to just be around to listen and offer advice when needed. I don't ever want to step on anyone's toes either. I can't force someone to learn, but I can be here if they have questions or just need to talk.

5. What do you hope to get out of #WeAllGrow Summit?

More than anything, I hope to gain inspiration from the #WeAllGrow Summit. Whether from the speakers, sessions, or attendees. I just hope to be inspired by their passion for blogging. I'm also looking forward to networking, meeting new people, and reconnecting with friends.
