106 & Park soon-to-get-the-boot co-host Rocsi Diaz wants us to know that there’s more to her than meets the eye.
Rocsi recently sat her Hollyweird hoppin’ hind-parts down with YRB magazine to talk passion, plans for the future and why the next host should stay in her lane.
The Misconception Of Who I Am: “I’m not what people think I am. People see a persona on television and they tend to think that is how people really are, when in actuality, we are all just human beings. I’m a very spiritual, humble and down-to-earth person. There is so much more to me than what meets the eye.”
Where My Passion Lies Now: “My passion lies in bettering and empowering our youth. Through my charity, The RocStar Foundation, mentoring and speaking engagements and through how I live my everyday life, I try to be a role model – not only for young girls – but for the youth as a whole. I want them to know they can achieve anything they set forth in their mind. You always need that cheerleader in your life.”
What 106 & Park Has Meant To Me: “It completely changed my life. This show set the foundation of a very prosperous career for me, and it showed me the reality of dreams coming true. I would have never seen myself on a flagship show on a major network for so long, and Terrence J and I have been able to outlast other television hosts in our demographic who didn’t last as long. You have to give us some type of credit for that.”
Life After 106 & Park: “I see myself continuing to host and be a part of the entertainment world. It is something I have grown to love, and I truly enjoy it. I have also ventured into the realm of acting, as well as writing and producing movies. I’m currently filming, as well as shopping around the very first film that I produced, and I’m really excited about it.”
Advice For The Next Rocsi:“Always follow your passion. Look at the people that came before you. Study the greats and practice, but most importantly, try to set your lane. Don’t settle for trying to be the next me, but instead become the best you.”
