Power of Women host Maria Menounos

Women's Impact Report 2012: Power of Women

The busy Menounos is seen on “Extra” and is CEO and founder of AfterBuzz TV, an online broadcast network with a weekly audience of 8 million worldwide. “My parents are Greek immigrants and worked as janitors but loved to work. As I say in my book, ‘The EveryGirl’s Guide to Life,’ the key to happiness is organization.

“I founded Take Action Hollywood! in 2002, a charity that uses the power of Hollywood (for) positive social change. I also work with, and raise money for, the Kibera School for Girls, located in the poorest slum in Nairobi, Kenya. We are also proud to have just produced our first feature, ‘The Elders,’ a documentary that focuses on the elderly in America.”
