Gina Rodriguez - Huffington Post

Gina Rodriguez has recently been named the summer 2015 ambassador for Kipling’s extraordinary Make Happy campaign. Gina recently won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy for her role in Jane the Virgin. The actress’s powerful, uplifting speech at the awards ceremony highlights her selflessness and spunky spirit.

Gina is of Puerto Rican descent but was born and raised in Chicago. She believes that Kipling offers the “perfect blend of comfort and femininity,” and she saved her allowance as a teenager until she could afford her first handbag from the designer.

Kipling’s Make Happy campaign is aimed at spreading cheer and happiness throughout the world by reminding people that happy moments abound and can come into anyone’s life at any time. Gina equates happiness with health and family, and she looks forward to inspiring young girls to achieve their dreams.

Gina’s first public appearance as Kipling’s ambassador is forthcoming.
