Dania Ramirez is the Newest Face of CoverGirl

Dominican-born beauty Dania Ramirez has just signed on as the newest CoverGirl spokesmodel and will be prominently featured in print and television ads starting in January 2010. Acknowledging the adversity she has had to overcome and how special this new gig is for her, the Heroes hottie told People.com, “I’m bringing my story, a story of struggle and hard work. Not speaking the language [when I got to America] and trying to figure out my definition of beauty, you learn to recognize the beauty in all of us. It takes a strong person to get where I’ve got.”

Now that Dania is part of the CoverGirl family, she said that she feels like the deal had "Been in the works my whole life. I’ve always dreamed of being a CoverGirl.” Check out the video below for a sneak peek at Dania's new ad campaign:
