Rosa Lisbeth Navarrete was raised by strong and funny Peruvian womxn. When Rosa and her sister were just five and three, her mother took them on a travel excursion from Perú to Los Angeles to be reunited with her father. They took another female friend on the trip. This experience nourishes Rosa's creative works, and gives her a unique perspective when collaborating on projects; helping her find empathy, connection, and a sense of adventure in her personal works. Rosa's storytelling abilities have the capacity for joy, drama, and comedy - all elements that ring true in her life.
Rosa is also an avid learner, and has always had her eye on tech and the arts. In high school she was part of both the BOEING Job Shadowing Program and the Film & Media Department. Rosa was introduced to the entertainment industry at the age of eighteen, and landed jobs at Univision Network, Disney, and DreamWorks Studios with ColorForce, Inc. Although these jobs were incredible, the dream of being the first in her family to get a college degree shifted her gaze to academic goals.
Rosa is a graduate of University of California, Berkeley’s English/Creative Writing program, a 2021 Justice for My Sister BIPOC Sci-Fi Screenwriting fellow, and a 2022 CBS Leadership Pipeline Challenge fellow.
Rosa loves writing about strong womxn, children with super powers, and underdogs. She thoroughly enjoys collaborating on projects that empower BIPOC/Latinx(e) communities, as she is a strong believer that media representation matters. Rosa is on a personal journey to investigate her unknown indigenous connection to Perú; a path she believes will make her a stronger mother, writer, and leader in her community. As she continues to develop her artistic voice - Rosa hopes to empower all the chubby brown girls who come across her work. As a teaching artist she strongly believes that the arts should be accessible to all - as it has the power to validate someone's existence in the world. She sends courage and love to all the shy spirits everywhere, who have a secret wild side. Thanks for visiting her site today. IG/Twitter: @mizperu | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
