10 Reasons Why Gina Rodriguez Is One Of My Favorite Humans

Gina Rodriguez. One of the women, besides Kerry Washington, I wish I could meet and become best friends with. Her charismatic and loving personality allows people like myself to fall in love with her each day. Every night at 9 I find myself in my room watching her play the role as Jane on the captivating show Jane the Virgin. Seeing her outside of her role continuously promotes girl power and exemplifies a strong, confident woman in all her glory. Gina never allows her confidence to be withheld and makes it pertinent to encourage young women of color to be ambitious and express themselves freely. There are many ways in which Gina Rodriguez produces moments of happiness and courage within in me, however sharing my top 10 hopefully allow you to adore Gina Rodriguez as much as I do.

1. She embraces her body type

Gina is curvy and she is satisfied. Many young girls and women in society are constantly pressured by the societal construct providing females with a certain body type. Gina is revolutionary as she embraces herself for who she is and does not allow society to marginalize her into a certain figure. She is happy, healthy, and loves herself.

2. She spreads Girl Love all day every day

Gina Rodriguez spreads girl love like nobody's business.Whether it is for her other female colleagues in the entertainment industry, or for her fans, she is always showing her support. Gina continuously spreads positivity throughout the female community.

3. She is always ready to give back in any way she can

Gina promotes girl power so much that this year she created the Young Women's Honors. Rodriguez is using this platform to discover, honor and celebrate women who demonstrate confidence, intelligence and leadership, that will inspire others to follow. The official program airs on CW December 19 at 9/8c.

4. She is not afraid to show her goofy side

Her epic lip sync battle performance when she performed "A Milli" by Lil' Wayne and even her interviews on various award shows prove she is not afraid to let loose. If there is one thing I love about Gina is her ability to break down the wall between Hollywood and the rest of the world. Her genuine personality gives us the chance to see Gina for Gina and fall in love with her even more.

5. She is fearless

She can do it all. She acts, she's a business woman, and she boxes. I don't think there is anything she can't and won't do if given the opportunity. Gina is not afraid to fight for herself and speak out against injustice. She even takes on powerful roles such as Andrea Fleytas in "Deepwater Horizon." Gina takes on amazing roles to prove that she can and will do more to make a difference in the world.

6. She is proud of her heritage and embraces it like no other

She is Latina and she does nothing to hide it. The show "Jane the Virgin" revolves around Latin American culture. Inside and out of the entertainment industry, Gina does the utmost to be a positive role model for all Latin Americans who wish to make their dreams come true in America just as she has.

7. She is Jane the Virgin

If you don't take time out of your schedule to watch this show every Monday at 9/8c on CW, you really need to. This show goes beyond the normal with the female lead. It brings forth the main character Jane who not only has a child, but takes on multiple jobs, and is in the process of going to graduate school to pursue a career. Jane proves anything is possible and nothing should stop you from being a bad ass woman who knows what she wants. The show also does more to strongly represent the Latin American culture in all of it's glory.

8. She is always encouraging others

If there is anything that I could love Gina for it is constantly encouraging others. She is constantly supporting her fans and letting us know if no one else is rooting for us, she is. Gina even takes time from her hectic schedule to encourage younger generations they are capable of anything they choose to put their minds to.

9. She got to interview President Obama

Gina Rodgriguez got the chance to speak with POTUS about the most important thing of this year: voting in the election. With both POTUS and Gina, this youtube video honestly couldn't have been any more amazing.

10. She is a boss in her own right

Enough said...

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
