Renata's Biography

Hometown: Miami, Florida
Childhood Dream: To be a journalist
Why Lingerie?: "Because here you have something that normally is very self indulgent and here you have women taking their power back, and they're gonna decide what they're gonna do with it."
Woman She Admires: "Hillary Clinton. She is so fierce."

Renata Black is the Chairwoman of Seven Bar Foundation, a social enterprise which fuels microfinance institutions in order to combat poverty and empower women in developing countries.
