Gina Rodriguez  Head down, prayers up and do work.

An actor only has the time it takes to create and film a character. Then it belongs to someone else. Today, I say goodbye to my time playing Gloria. For now. Te quiero mucho Mexico. I love you Tijuana. 😍

To my king. I love you. Happy birthday. #sexiestmanAlive

Ali Wong is an American actress, stand-up comic and writer with both Chinese and Vietnamese descent. In 2011, Variety named her one of the "10 Comics to Watch." On Mother’s Day 2016, Netflix released Wong’s comedy special Baby Cobra, which featured her seven months pregnant. According to The Guardian, in Baby Cobra, Ali looks at not obviously comedic subjects including her previous miscarriage and fertility struggles and makes them genuinely hilarious, while also picking apart both sexism and feminism. While Ali is regarded as the first comedian to make a special while pregnant, she was worried that she may not be able to come back to comedy after having her baby. Ali recognized that “aside from Joan Rivers and Roseanne, it’s hard for me to think of any female comedian who’s had kids and has a serious level of fame -- like the level where your mother has heard of them.” Ali recognized that her miscarriage joke in the special did not always hit but that it was important to put it in there because it was a sincere part of her journey. Ali graduated from undergrad at UCLA where she majored in Asian-American studies. Ali is currently a regular on ABC’s American Housewives and was a writer for ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat. #movementmondays

Aimee Carrero is a Dominican Actress. Carrero was born in in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and grew up in Miami, Florida (you can find her in the youtube sketch “Shit Miami Girls Say...and guys”). While studying International Relations at Florida International University, she aspired to be a lawyer. But, before she started filling out law school applications, she hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. Carrero has appeared on a lot of shows since then including: Level Up, Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, Lincoln Heights, Men of a Certain Age, The Middle, Greek, Baby Daddy, and The Americans. In 2012, Carrero made her off-broadway debut in Atlantic Theater Company’s world premiere play, What Rhymes with America. Since 2014, Carrero has starred in Freeform sitcom Young & Hungry, alongside Emily Osment. In 2015, it was announced that Carrero will be providing the voice of Elena, Disney's first Latina fairy tale princess for the Disney Channel series Elena of Avalor. The animated series premiered in July 2016, quickly became television's #1 series for Girls age 2-11 in the U.S. and is honored with a National Hispanic Media Coalition Award and an Annie Award nomination. It will be going into its 3rd season this year. Carrero told Popsugar on landing the role, "For me, it's like one of the most amazing things to ever happen to me, because I think growing up, you want to see yourself represented in stories and you want to see your culture highlighted. I think this has been something people have been wanting for a long time.”

So many memories and so much love for the greatest Tv Pops in the game @jaimecamil I love you with all of my heart and words can't express what a blessing these past three years have been with you in my life. Happy Birthday, to the most loving, compassionate, generous, insanely talented and insanely kind hearted human being I've ever met. I love tv pops, por vida @jaimecamil

Always.

#MovementMondays Patricia Riggen is a Mexican director, writer, and producer born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. She became known for Under the Same Moon and the TV movie Lemonade Mouth. Most recently, she directed Girl in Progress with Eva Mendes, Miracles from Heaven with Jennifer Garner, as well as The 33 with Antonio Banderas. While in her home country, Riggen obtained a degree in communication sciences and worked as a journalist. It wasn’t until later that Riggen found her way into writing and producing film, though she never thought she would end up as a director, comparing the chances of landing a career as a director to the chances of landing a career as an astronaut – slim to none. She moved to New York City, where she received her Master's degree in directing and screenwriting at Columbia University. On finally finding her calling, Riggen says, “it never crossed my mind to be a director, and I'll tell you why: because I'm a woman. It just didn't occur to me, but I knew I had to be in film. I finally moved to Mexico City, where the film industry is. I started working there as a producer, which is a very, very valid thing for women to do, because we always produce for men, right? I was pretty successful but I was really unhappy, so I thought, ‘I'm going to go back to school, I'm going to pay for a master's degree…” Riggen is also now one of the most high-profile Latina film directors in Hollywood, she told Latina Trends - “I feel like a rare species. We’re so underrepresented in general–women in film, Latinas in film. I worked really hard, and there’s a lot of competition out there, but I have never experienced discrimination ever I moved here [Los Angeles]. I saw people believing in me, and started believing in myself.”
