Actress America Ferrera shared a moment with one of her favorite world leaders this week. The "Ugly Betty" star and activist visited the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, where Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was headlining a panel titled "Women Decision Makers." She chatted with Clinton after the event, and shared this photo of their encounter.

This isn't the first time the two have crossed paths. America herself is an artist ambassador for Save the Children, and a longtime supporter of Clinton. She backed her 2008 presidential campaign and, along with actress Amber Tamblyn, co-chaired the campaign's youth outreach program "Hillblazers."
