Quote from ACRONYM: “When presented with the opportunity to film a music video on body equality and self love at no matter the size, I was elated. Also, for clarification, I had to step in as a dancer last minute, which was scary for myself, starring and creating, but having these amazing women by my side, I felt like I could do anything.” – @acronymofficial, Director, Dancer/Model
Quote from Jose Goo AFTR: “I wanted to show some love to my city and all the beautiful people in it – so while living in Humboldt Park, I wrote this song, “Humboldt Swagger”.
