Eva Longoria has spoken to ABullsEyeView.com about her charity work, her foundation and her Hispanic heritage.

Can you tell us a little about your foundation and its mission?

The Eva Longoria Foundation helps Latinas build better futures for themselves and their families. We focus on education and entrepreneurship because both have the power to transform lives. Those are also areas where Latinas currently need more support so my foundation is working to fill that gap.

What inspired you to create your foundation?

As a Mexican-American woman, I’ve always had a strong connection to the Latina community. I started my foundation because I realized that Latinas had amazing potential, but many lacked the resources to succeed. It seemed both unfair and wasteful, so I decided to do everything in my power to help Latinas unlock their potential.

Is your Hispanic heritage an important part of your identity?

Yes, my Hispanic heritage is very important to who I am as a person. It’s been a major influence in my career, my philanthropy, and my personal life. I’m excited to be hosting my foundation event during Hispanic Heritage Month as a tribute to the Hispanic community and the important role we play in this country.
