Watch: Austin Firefighter in Amy Poehler's Web Show, 'Smart Girls'

Actor Amy Poehler of "Saturday Night Live" and "Parks and Recreation" fame, has a mission: encouraging women to be themselves. And to stay true to that person whether it be at a party, being a rock star or competing in a triathlon. 

Austin Fire Department firefighter, Xochitl Hernandez has joined a list of females to be featured in Poehler's video series: Smart Girls Operation Nice.

Hernandez is one of 57 female firefighters in Austin Fire Department. 

"To become a firefighter, you've got to stay in school and you've got to stay out of trouble," Hernandez said. "They have to be brave and ... know that  you can pretty much do anything you set your mind to it."
