article image'Unstoppable in Stilettos' inspires readers to never say no

By KJ Mullins     Jun 6, 2011 in Entertainment
Lauren Ruotolo has traveled the world as the Director of Entertainment Promotions for Hearst Magazines in her stilettos. Her life is impressive as it is but more so considering the fact that she suffers from McCune-Albright Syndrome.
Ruotolo is only 4 feet, 2 inches but appears taller considering that she's always in her high heels. Her favorite store is Nordstrom's who according to the stiletto lover "carries the best of all the top designers in small and large sizes."
While she has McCune-Albright Syndrome, a condition that causes premature puberty in girls and affects the bones, skin and hormone producing tissues, she hasn't let that stop her. She may have spent more time in hospital than most but that hasn't stopped her from achieving her dreams. One of her personal lessons of life is, "Never say “no” to yourself—you are the one person you can depend on to always say “yes!”
Her parents treated Ruotolo just like they did her younger fully-abled siblings. As a result of being treated the same she was the role model big sister. There is no label of 'disabled' for this powerful young woman. Her story is being brought to life in the book, Unstoppable in Stilettos: A Girl's Guide to Living Tall in a Small World.
In her daily job at Hearst Magazines in New York she works with TV networks, music labels and movie studios. She recently was involved the production of an E! Style Network show about the inner workings of Marie Claire, a fashion magazine.
Ruotolo wrote the book for "every teenager, young woman and adult who has ever had a fear of something or wanted to achieve something they thought could never happen."
