Ferrera’s mom is América Griselda Ayes, who emigrated from Honduras with her husband, Carlos Gregorio Ferrera, in the 1970s.

In some ways, the film imitated life: the movie was made during Ferrera’s own senior year of high school, and like the mom in the film, Ayes had strong ideas about her daughter’s future plans. After she graduated high school first in her class, she decided to put off college for a year to pursue acting.

She promptly landed a role in the film , an adaptation of the popular young-adult novel of the same name.

Ayes and her husband split when America, the youngest of six, was little; Ayes became a Solo Mom, and she worked hard to keep things stable for the children.

“My father, Gregorio, walked out on us when we were kids so it was all down to her,” Ferrera has said.

If your sister sneezed or was talking over a line, there was no way of knowing what that line was or what the joke was.

In an interview with Jamie Painter Young in , Ferrera said that her mom had come to the United States “for the sole purpose that my siblings and I could get an education, could have every opportunity in the business world, and whatever we wanted to pursue would be at our fingertips.” For Ferrera, that meant acting.
