Actress Regina Hall was honored last Friday at the 20th annual Step Up Inspiration Awards.
“We’re in a time of social media so I encourage our beautiful young girls to pursue excellence, not likes,” Hall told the crowd. “It’s really easy to look and compare yourself but who you are is so incredibly powerful. And you don’t have to look, think or be like anyone. You just have to love to your highest degree and pursue your highest best. And that shouldn’t be compared to anything.”

So grateful to be honored today at the 2018 Inspiration Awards. Thank you to my bestie/sister @sanaalathan for presenting me with the award. I was touched by your beautiful speech. Step Up is an amazing organization that propels girls living or going to school in under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women. What an incredible day!!!!
ABC President, Channing Dungey also attended the event held at the Beverly Wilshire. According to reports, she received major love when she took the stage to introduce Sanaa Lathan.
