Dream Big

Another excellent role model for young women emerges: Angela Bismarchi of Brazil is 36 years old and attempting to break the Guinness Book record for the most plastic surgeries performed on one person. Bismarchi is about to undergo her 42nd procedure — the current record, 47 procedures, is held by 52 year-old American Cindy Jackson. Basmarchi had a boob lift at 21 after giving birth to her first child and has been going under the knife ever since, driven by her desire to be beautiful, break records, and lead a winning samba troupe in Rio's Carniavale parade, equally. "I consider myself quite timid," she says. "I'm just a little girl grown big. I never imagined I would be famous. Things just happened." [MSNBC]
