Christina Ochoa is celebrating her hero as part of this year’s International Women’s Daycommemorations…
The 34-year-old Spanish actress, a star on ABC’s drama series A Million Little Things, appears in a new video released by humanitarian non-profit organization CARE as part of its #HerInHERO campaign.
In the black-and-white clip, 30 female celebrities – including Ochoa, Kelly Clarkson, Sophia Bush, Jess Glynne and others — name their personal female heroes. Most, including Clarkson, discuss the impact their mothers have had on their lives.
But Ochoa claimed marine biologist Sylvia Earleas her hero, saying, “She has pioneered the role of women in STEM and marine sciences, inspiring the lives of young women.”
Meanwhile, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriznamed country music legend Dolly Parton as her hero.
