The Sisterhood Beyond the Traveling Pants, America Ferrera
For Emmy Award-winning actor America Ferrera, it’s the sisterhood of friends and mentors that have helped her overcome challenges and pursue goals.
AMERICA FERRERA: We want to feel like we're in community and we're surrounded by people. It's what makes our lives worth living. My friends, my mentors, they have helped me through every single moment and they make everything that much better when there's something to celebrate or, you know, something that's hard and I need to get through.
When I have doubts, when I get tired, when I feel like I just can't do it today, I look up and there's my friend using her voice. There is my friend breaking boundaries. There is my friend doing something that terrifies her. And it helps me keep going.
