Favorite Quotes from Diane Guerrero
“My parents’ deportation gave me so much strength to keep on moving forward because any type of failure – whether in school or with jobs or rejection from a casting office – nothing could be as bad as what I had already gone through. Nothing could be worse than coming home expecting to see your loving parents and them not being there.” – Diane Guerrero
“I feel like you can’t really be truthful as an artist and empathize with the human experience unless you know your truth and you’re not living a lie. So I’m learning through it, and it’s making me a better person, and it’s making me a better artist, I think.” – Diane Guerrero
“Not a single person at any level of government took any note of me. No one checked to see if I had a place to live or food to eat, and at 14, I found myself basically on my own.” – Diane Guerrero
“Once I decided to use my voice in a way that could potentially help others, I found there were a lot of people like me – a lot of kids left behind. So, I wanted to call attention to the issue.” – Diane Guerrero
