America Georgine Ferrera was born on April 18, 1984, in Los Angeles, CA. Her parents América Griselda Ayes and Carlos Gregorio Ferrera are from Honduras. They moved to the United States in the mid-1970s. The couple separated from each other when Ferrera was only seven years of age. Her mom Ayes was then confronted with the duty of dealing with her six children without any help.

A Career as an American Actress

Ferrera's first big role was a supporting one in the Disney Channel TV film, Gotta Kick It Up. She then handled the lead in Real Women Have Curves. The motion picture was based on a play of the same name by Josefina Lopez. Ferrera noted in interviews that there were comparisons between the story and her own life. The motion picture was taped during her senior year of high school in Woodland Hills, California.

Her next big role was in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. In the film, Ferrera played one of a quartet of female companions compelled to persevere through a mid year long break from each other. Despite the fact that all are constructed in an unexpected way, they choose to share a couple of pants over their get-aways via emailing them to each other. Ferrera's character, Carmen, goes to visit her father in another state whom she scarcely knows. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants got along admirably in the cinema world and reverberated with the book's armies of fans.
