The Loyola Marymount University student received a standing ovation and brought a room of Hollywood heavyweights to tears as she accepted a full-ride scholarship from "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot. Arellano's emotional acceptance speech made Gadot and fellow presenter Justin Timberlake teary eyed.

The 26th annual breakfast celebrating the trade publication's Power 100 ranking of women in the entertainment business included presentations of $1 million in college scholarships to girls from underrepresented communities in Los Angeles.
