Milana Vayntrub is an actress, comedian and global refugee crisis advocate

Milana is most well known for her upcoming role as squirrel girl on Marvel's New Warriors and her character on “This is Us”. But it is Milana's compelling story as an ex-refugee and advocate for combating the global refugee crisis that is truly capturing the world’s attention. At the age of two, she fled religious persecution in Uzbekistan with her parents to make a home in America. Twenty-five years later, she co-founded the grassroots #CantDoNothing organization, created to encourage others to give their time, money, and voice to assist refugees worldwide.

An "Upright Citizens Brigade"-trained comedian, Milana has also appeared on TV and the big screen, including on Showtime's "House of Lies" and HBO's "Californication," and in "Ghostbusters" and "L!fe Happens."
