Thirty eight year old actress Gabrielle Union is joining the Obama administration- sort of. The brown skin beauty has been appointed by President Obama to work with the National Advisory Committee for Violence Against Women.
For those of you not in the know, Gabrielle was raped and beaten when she was 19 years old and working alone in a shoe store. The actress said the attack left her so disfigured that her own family members did not recognize her when they came to the hospital.
Since then, Gabrielle has worked with quite a few rape organizations, including those that council young men.
On her new advisory position, Gabrielle says it is her “most fulfilling role in life.”
