EXCLUSIVE: Jake T. Austin On Being Puerto Rican, Speaking Spanish & Girls

This summer, you're teaming up with Boys & Girls Clubs of America for the 6th annual Staples for Students national school supply drive. What made you want to get involved with this project?

I was approached by both organizations and I was really blessed and honored to have been asked to a part of this project. As a kid, I wasn’t always sure how the year would turn out for me. While there are others who are going hungry and who can't secure themselves with these basic necessities, we're trying to fulfill one of those - a great school year.

Any other exciting things you’re doing this summer?

I've been looking forward to seeing new episodes of The Fosters. Also, working on Rio 2, which I have been recording. I have the Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn movie. I'm just really looking forward to expanding my career and maybe crossing over to producing also.
