Audacity Magazine

<p><a href="http://www.audacitymagazine.com" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(192, 132, 52);"><strong>Audacitymagazine.com </strong></a> was established in July 2003 as an online lifestyle magazine for people with physical disabilities. The non-profit organization was the brainchild of Nathasha Alvarez after realizing that the mainstream media was not meeting the needs of the physically disabled community, including herself who lives with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone disease. <br /> <br /> The magazine started out with a group of people who believed in the idea that the physically disabled community deserved and needed an online magazine to discuss the various aspects of life that only the disabled community would understand. Topics ranged from politics, fashion, sex, entertainment and sports. <br /> <br /> In 2004, the Miami Herald recognized Audacity Magazine as one of the finalists in their annual business plan contest. In fact, one of the judges dubbed Audacity magazine as &ldquo;the Cosmo for the extraordinary person.&rdquo; Tango Diva nominated Nathasha as a Visionary Diva in 2007 for her efforts in the community regarding the physically disabled population, and last year, The New Times in Miami, Florida singled her out as one of 50 Savviest Singles in South Florida. With such accolades, it&rsquo;s no wonder Nathasha Alvarez considers herself a Latina Diva on wheels. <br /> <br /> For more info, visit <a href="http://www.audacitymagazine.com" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(192, 132, 52);"><strong>www.audacitymagazine.com</strong></a></p> <p>Now a little bit about the woman behind the magazine. That's me!&nbsp;</p> <p>I&nbsp;didn't dub myself this but I am known as the latina diva on wheels!&nbsp;Don't ask me why! I will let you be the judge.&nbsp; I&nbsp;have my own column on Audacity Magazine. It's called Just My Bellybutton!&nbsp; I place all of my deepest thoughts there! They have been known to be shallow as well. </p> <p>I&nbsp;love to travel and get to know as many people as possible because everyone has a story to tell. </p> <p>What's yours?</p>
