MODERN MUZE X PATRICIA DELEON

patricia_deleon_modern_muzeEach week, we take a moment to celebrate a woman who exemplifies what it means to be a Modern Muze. 
 
This week, we are spotlighting Patricia DeLeon, who shares with us her unique perspective, and invites us to elevate alongside her. Patricia de Leon is an actress, activist, entrepreneur, PETA advocate, and the founder of PDL Cosmetics. Her company creates highly pigmented, cruelty-free, vegan makeup and luxe lip products with a tagline, "A bold splash of color to inspire confidence." Patricia and a renowned makeup chemist worked side-by-side for two years to perfect PDL’s unique formulations and vibrantly distinct colors.
 
Patricia came to the United States from Panama with a visa, $1,000 in cash, and a limited ability to speak English.  Nonetheless, she was able to build her cosmetics line both from her passion in caring for the community, as well as her desire to ignite confidence in women.
 
As part of her brand's mission statement, Patricia aims to honor her Hispanic ancestry, and help change a woman's attitude from “Maybe I can” to “YES I CAN.”  She hopes to inspire a movement of empowering women to unite with love, and feel unlimited!

MODERN MUZE
Patricia, where are you and your family from?
PATRICIA

I was born and raised in Panamá. 

MODERN MUZE
What do you love most about being a woman?

We are capable, we are strong, we create life, we are vulnerable, and we survive under any circumstances. The strength that a woman has when her self esteem is all there makes us unstoppable.

What advice would you give your younger self?
