What's Driving Ms. Daisy Fuentes?

The actress and supermodel fights for kids as advocate for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Daisy Fuentes began her career as a model and skyrocketed to fame as MTV’s first Latino VJ. Over the years, the Cuban-born star parlayed her popularity into success as a clothing designer, fitness guru, author and role model for women. But it’s her latest passion that finds her truly making a difference for an incredibly worthwhile organization: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

After an eye-opening visit to the hospital, Fuentes organized the St. Jude Angels and Stars Gala, now an annual event that’s raised millions of dollars for the hospital's cutting-edge research and treatment programs for childhood cancer, pediatric AIDS, genetic disorders and other catastrophic childhood diseases.

Fuentes believes that with fame comes responsibility. “I’ve used my celebrity to call attention to causes that are important to me, and that’s something that I consider a privilege,” she says.

My Generation's Bill Boggs went one-on-one with this multi-talented and inspiring celebrity.
