Gina Rodriguez remembers pretty well what kind of troubles she had to go through, when she was a girl.

That is why she will do everything to support the #EndPeriodPoverty initiative.

The Jane the Virgin star wrote on her Instagram profile: The first day of school is a big day for girls around the country. Many will start a new school year filled with opportunities... But some girls will skip school on their first day, their first week or sometime in their first month - not because they are sick, but because they don't have access to period products.

Rodriguez started a campaign where she invited all her fans to share a photo of themselves, when they were teens.

How will this help poor girls get their period products? Find out in the video above!
