When asked by FabFitFun about her the inspiration behind her desire to give back to women and young girls, Eva revealed: ‘Well, I grew up with a special-needs sister, and I was born into her world.
‘We knew the word ‘volunteer’ very early in our lives. We knew the word ‘charity’ very early in our lives. It’s literally in the DNA of who I am and understanding that this world doesn’t work without communities [or families] helping each other.
‘So being raised in her world and in that environment really instilled the idea of giving back,’ she concluded.
