When asked about Liza being vocal of her political stance, Enrique explains that while his girlfriend sharing strong opinions on the internet can be a bit "scary" for him, he's also highly supportive of her.

"Of course I give her advice, you know, to slow down, choose your fights, and you know, the internet is not a place to mess around sometimes, but that's the only way to get to these people also.

"We just want to change the world, make a change, make it a better place, hopefully. There's always hope," the actor said.

For Liza, her little actions are *powerful steps* in making a big difference. She shares, "Honestly, I have a lot of big dreams that you know, I don't really see them happening, but for some reason, I still wanna work on them little by little just by speaking up for women's rights or children's rights, or certain things that I don't agree with."

She talks about the importance of using her platform: She aims to be a woman with the power to change hearts and minds, plus to influence people to take up space themselves.

"I think it's always great to start a conversation just so you can see different sides or different opinions that people have, and from there, you work on it.

"Of course, I'm just an actress, I'm just an influencer, but I'm hoping that using my voice and my influence, I can influence people to you know, be better people as well, make a change, start talking, don't let people just you know, step all over you, and you know, take a [look at the] bigger picture."
