Because, of course she is.
Gina Rodriguez is hosting and executive producing the new Young Women’s Honors because of course she is.
The award show is in collaboration with Marie Claire and is intended to honor women who are achieving in philanthropy, technology, science, education, and more.
In a statement, Gina explained,
“My goal in creating Young Women’s Honors is to generate positivity, inclusivity, unlimited potential, and the possibility every woman is born with. As a young Latina, I had to break down barriers and overcome naysayers. When you see someone following their dreams, it gives you allowance to follow your own.”
This is so cool! And so very Gina, may we add!
The show is set to air Monday, December 19th on the CW so we have a while to wait. The honorees will be chosen by a panel with representatives from Marie Claire, Lord & Taylor, and Clinique. We can’t wait!
