Eva Longoria gives back

Famous for her role on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” Eva Longoria is a symbol of beauty in Hollywood. But her heart lies in her charitable work. Alina Cho sits down with Longoria in her segment “Big Stars, Big Giving.”

Born the youngest of four daughters to Mexican-American parents, her humble roots and strong female presence at home encouraged her towards Latino women and education. With statistics like 17% of Latinas drop out of high school and fewer than half of adults hold college degrees, it made sense to start her own foundation focused on educating women on the benefits of education.
