Gina Rodriguez's Secret Tropical Getaway and 5 More Favorite Things
Best Advice: "Fear only exists from between your two ears." From my dad! It's so true—whether you're afraid of confronting someone or going after a new job, the only thing really stopping you is you. So forget the excuses, get off your butt and go do it!
Best Getaway: Utuado, Puerto Rico, an area that's barely been touched by people and has crystal clear water, huge waterfalls and natural slides made of curved rock. It's like God's living room.
Best Shower Song: "Latch" by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith. The acoustics in my bathroom are tremendous, so it's easy to convince myself I'm actually imitating Sam's big, beautiful voice.
Best Workout: Boxing. My father, Genaro, is a professional referee—he's overseen hundreds of fights, with greats like Manny Pacquiao and Wladimir Klitschko—so he trained me at a young age. He always wanted to have a boy and name him Genaro Jr., but he got me instead. So Gina it was!
