Ferrera to speak at Bunker Hill Community College
BOSTON—Former "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera is coming to Massachusetts to discuss how education helped her become successful and the importance of helping those in need.
Bunker Hill Community College says Ferrera is scheduled to visit the school on Feb. 16. as part of its "Compelling Conversations" speaker series.
The actress starred in the U.S. television series about a wise but wacky New York fashion magazine assistant. In November she ditched the clunky braces and the thick fake eyebrows of "Ugly Betty" for sexy, slinky outfits as the showgirl Roxie, embarking on an eight-week theater stint in London in "Chicago."
At Bunker Hill, Ferrera is expected to speak about how education has helped her achieve success and discuss the importance of "giving back" to help those who are less fortunate.
