America Ferrera got some official recognition yesterday, from Congresswoman Hilda L. Solis (D-Calif.). Solis gave a good speech:
Through her work, Ms. Ferrera is breaking down barriers for Latinos in prime-time television. … I commend America and everyone involved in Ugly Betty for helping to break down stereotypes and provide a role model for young Latinas.
A role model indeed:
Now if only we could get a real Latina on The L Word. Hey! America, see if they’ll let you be a guestbian!
