SPOTLIGHT: GINA’S CAMPAIGN
In Clinique’s #differencemaker campaign, Rodriguez appears in a powerful video speaking about education, along with inspiring women such as British former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton and South African actor Jessica Nkosi. The campaign aims to highlight how small changes in our daily lives can make big changes in our communities. “My life’s purpose is outside my passion for acting: freeing others the way I was freed,” says Rodriguez. “And there’s nothing more encouraging than being able to do that with beauty brands, because beauty begins with our confidence. Confidence is directly linked to our education, intelligence, belief in ourselves and our belief in unlimited possibilities.” Clinique will also make a donation to the charity Room to Read, which works to encourage literacy among children, specifically girls, in developing communities.
