Diane Guerrero’s Orgullosa Living Fabulosa Story

Actress Diane Guerrero shares her thoughts on what Living Fabulosa means to her.


Diane Guerrero is a Boston native who from an early age has had an affinity for the arts. She attended the Boston Arts Academy where she studied vocal music. After earning a degree in political science and communication, she decided to pursue her passion of performance art.

She moved to New York and subsequently appeared on numerous television series. She is best known for her roles as Maritza Ramos on the award-winning, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Netflix series Orange is the New Black (for which she received two Screen Actors Guild awards) and as Lina in CW's breakout hit Jane the Virgin. Variety also named her one of the top 10 Latina actresses to watch: Variety's Top Ten Latinas.

In 2015, Diane was named a White House Ambassador for Citizenship and Naturalization. She is an outspoken advocate for commonsense and comprehensive immigration reform, and has worked with Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Mi Familia Vota – a nonpartisan Latino civic engagement organization to promote citizenship and voter registration. Her forthcoming memoir from Henry Holt publishing, titled In the Country We Love, will be released in Spring 2016.

As the host of the Living Fabulosa event, Diane said:

"I feel honored to be working with Orgullosa and representing this fabulous community of independent, strong and proud Latinas. It’s so great to see us come together and celebrate our stories of confidence and success, but also to talk about the role each of us has in guiding other Latinas on their own path to success. Each of us can be a source of inspiration to other women around us. Let’s not forget who we are and keep reminding each other that we have what it takes to live fabulosa every day.”

When it came to the topic of mentorship, she said, “You have to look at people who are doing really, really great things and inspiring others and living life with purpose. That’s who I always try to find guidance from.”
