Backstage Pass with Massiel Hernandez

There are so many fabulous faces emerging in the world of plus fashion and in the plus industry in general.  One of the people you need to be in the lookout for is the fabulous Massiel Hernandez (@MassielNH).  With her resume including actress, model, and film producer, she definitely will be a name you need to remember!

Hernandez grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey and had a very humble beginning.  She is a proud Puerto Rican and a lover of life.  In fact, one of her favorite childhood memories is how much fun she had during the Christmas season.  Hernandez grew up, but she never lost sight of the fact she was destined to do great things. 

Even though she knew better days were coming for her, Hernandez still had to overcome some body issues.  She was once shy about her body and it took her a long time to be and feel comfortable within her own skin.  Having a strong role model helped her overcome her fears and break out of her shell. 

Once the body shyness left, Hernandez started to make her mark!  Although nervous, her first fashion show was a great experience.  She has been modeling for about four year, but she ironically received her big break through acting.  In fact, you may have seen her on one of your favorite shows.  She has done several indie films.  However, to date, one of her favorite roles was when she played a security guard on “Nurse Jackie”. 

Hernandez keeps a busy schedule, but she always finds time for some fun.  Who doesn’t love to shop?!  She is no different from us when it comes to that part of life.  Although she shops are various places, two of her favorite stores are Torrid and Target!  Of course, Hernandez loves to travel as well.  Her favorite destination is Berlin!  She enjoys the atmosphere and the fashion there.  In fact, if she had one superpower, it would be the ability to fly so she could get to Berlin faster!  How awesome is that?!

Massiel Hernandez is a name that is going to be around for a long time.  She has already
made great strides in the industry, but she is looking to do so much more.  Hernandez is a belly dancing, capoeira loving, strong woman.  We here at The Plus Diaries look forward to seeing her continue to be a success!
