Founded by Emmy winning journalist Maria Menounos and Producer Keven Undergaro, AfterBuzz TV is the artist-friendly entertainment news platform that celebrates, discusses, interviews, promotes and reports on the widest range of stars, creators and content through video, audio and article publications.

Now more than ever, representation and providing a platform for marginalized groups is crucial. The intense, political climate in the United States has inspired a number of social movements across the country and motivated many to finally share their voice. This is why Latina women like Eva Longoria and America Ferrera helped launch the digital platform, She Se Puede. 

“The new destination for the modern Latina who is ready to level up her life. Welcome Home. #shesepuede.” 

The She Se Puede platform went live on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. The “community for mujeres” began teasing it’s launch on Facebook in mid August, but nothing was officially posted until yesterday.  

A number of Latina celebrities promoted the all new initiative on their Instagrams. Singer Becky G opened up about her childhood while also supporting the site on her page. The Mexican-American artist posted a throwback photo of her and her mom, revealing how she and her family of 6 used to live in her grandfather’s garage. 

“Join me and follow @she_sepuede, a new community BY Latinas!” She ended the inspiring post adding it’s “a space for us to share in each other’s growth, feel empowered, and level-up all aspects of our lives! 💪🏽  #SheSePuede www.shesepuede.org.” 

Actress Chloe Bridges also showed her enthusiasm for the platform’s beginning with an Instagram picture. In the photo, Bridges is wearing her Columbia University cap and gown. She thanks all the founders for the “wonderful idea,” and goes on to share her experience as a zoom graduate!

It’s @she_sepuede launch day! Excited to be a part of this collective effort to inspire and inform one another and fellow Latinas. Hats off to founders @americaferrera @evalongoria @elsamariecollins @stephaniemvalencia @olguitasegura for having this wonderful idea and helping us come together as a community to leverage our power. I know I posted in the cap and gown in May during “graduation” but I wasn’t quite done – NOW I’m finally done after finishing my last four classes over zoom (weird) this summer. And such is the long and protracted story of my education in general… I didn’t apply to Columbia until 2014 when I was 22, and now six years later at 28 I’m finally finishing. I took most of my credits in summer instead of regular semesters, I filed leaves of absence so I could go to LA/Atlanta/Vancouver and keep working in TV… but I kept going back to New York and getting it done, and I’m so glad I did. Join me by posting your own #shesepuede moment and by following @she_sepuede!

Founder America Ferrera wrote “it’s a dream come true” on her Insta page and received an outpouring of support in the comments. She also invites fans to follow the She Se Puede page and to send a moment they’re proud of!
