America Georgine Ferrera is an American actress who became a star with her title role in the popular television series ‘Ugly Betty’. Interested in acting since she was in school, she performed in several school stage productions and came into prominence with her debut film, ‘Real Women Have Curves’. While her performance in ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ gained her more recognition, she won critical acclaim for portraying the protagonist in the television series ‘Ugly Betty’, which garnered her a number of Best Actress Awards, including the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, and the Primetime Emmy Award. The unique role in ‘Ugly Betty’ and her subsequent roles thereafter made her a "role model" for the young Hispanic women in the entertainment industry, and Congresswoman Hilda L. Solis congratulated her for the same. Ferrera was dubbed as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2007 by Time magazine. An ardent supporter of ‘Save the Children’ campaign, she is also an ambassador for it. As part of her social work, she traveled to India to meet the children of sex workers and raise awareness against sex trafficking.
