Sin Vergüenza, translating from Spanish to “without shame”, takes back an insult thrown at those who do not conform to the status quo. This section highlights those who are pursuing a passion, cause, style, or living life without any shame. This is meant to empower those who others look down on with doubt and show that anything is possible, not to give up, and don’t let anyone tell you who you can and cannot be.
