World icon, muse, accomplished woman, Eva Longoria speaks to Life Mag about his charitable commitment, delivers her beauty secrets and future projects.You support a lot of charitable associations, how this vocation to stand up has came ?
My elder sister has special needs so I grew up very aware of the support systems needed for people like her and conscious of how important it is to give back to the community. Volunteering was something my whole family was very familiar with so giving back to the community was kind of instilled in me from a very young age.Which cause would you consider particulary dear to you ? Why ?
I believe education is ultimately the start to making a change. I´ve been influenced by educators all my life as my mother, sisters & aunts were teachers.You have your own charitable association, can you explain the main purpose ? Why have you created this association ?
I launched the Eva Longoria Foundation in 2012 to help Latinas and their families with education and entrepreneurship. When I was starting out I would receive lots of letters asking for help which inspired me start my foundation. I think I´ve been very lucky in life and feel it´s only natural to support those less fortunate.
