1. Jackie Cruz, actress, Orange Is the New Black
I play cult favorite character tough girl Marisol “Flaca” Gonzales on the hit Netflix show Orange Is the New Black. I knew we were making history after I watched the first season. I had never seen, growing up or until this day, a show with such a diverse cast, and especially women—all of these wonderful colors and sizes. That is not the particular Hollywood beauty that I imagined and saw growing up, and now I get to be one of them. It’s just really beautiful; we are making history with not only our show, but also streaming [television]. We are paving the way and it’s just really awesome, especially being a Latina woman.
2. Jihan Thompson, health editor, O Magazine
At O, I handle front-of-book wellness stories that range from nutrition pieces to medical trend stories to scientific breakthroughs to first-person narratives. I also edit well features on a range of topics from caregiving to decluttering.
3. Blair Eadie, director of merchandising at Tory Burch and blogger at Atlantic-Pacific
I love being able to partner with fantastic brands and help them pull together their completed looks.
4. Nola Weinstein, head of executive engagement, Twitter
In this role, I work with business leaders from around the world to help them better understand the power of the platform and optimize their personal Twitter presence to drive meaningful messaging and impact.
