Learning From Inspirational People I've Met

Posted: Updated:

If I haven't expressed it enough, here it is. I LOVE recognizing amazing people. I'm talking about folks who are dedicating themselves to making this world a better place. If you haven't seen my segments called, Gina's People, I hope you take the time to do so. All of the stories are on our website.  I can honestly tell you that I've learned a little something from every single person that I've featured. 

Today's story is about never giving up, no matter what. Misty Diaz is an inspirational woman. Watch her story and you'll know what I mean. 

Last week, I featured Jennifer Sariñana.  She is the founder of a blanket outreach program that reaches approximately 58,000 homeless people in the Los Angeles area.  She said something that will stay with me forever, "I am blessed to be a blessing."  How wonderful is that?!  

Then, there was Mike Petrone who is on a mission to make the world more compassionate.  He says, it's all very simple. Practice random acts of generosity and you'll see the most dramatic changes. Mike says, "Everybody has the ability to make a difference. They just need a little inspiration." 

Gina's People Segments air every Monday on Fox 11.

    How about a little lesson on conservation from Willie the Cat. Willie starts unrolling all of the paper until it is all on the floor. But you have to watch what happens next in this viral video.

    In 2013 the HTC One (M7) was one of my favs, so I was excited to see what the next gen model would be have in store. One word, "impressive!" Beautifully crafted, possibly the best on the market. Behold: HTC's One (M8)
