Gina Rodriguez at Golden Globes: “I can and I DID!”


I believe the most touching speech at the Golden Globes last night was given by Gina Rodriguez who won Best Actress in a TV Series Musical or Comedy. She said:

“This award is so much bigger than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes…”

“My dad used to tell me, ‘Today’s a great day, you can and you will,'” she said. “Well, dad, today’s a great day, and I can and I did!”

You can see the video of her full speech here. In her brief remarks, she reminds us that it’s not enough to just dream big, we also need to work hard and sacrifice in order to achieve these dreams. She stayed true to her roots and acknowledged her family and friends that have been supporting her throughout her journey. I hope this is just the beginning of more career success for her, we’ll be watching.
