Rosa Lisbeth Navarrete immigrated with her mother and little sister from Perú to Los Angeles at the age of five. The journey north was to reunite the family after a full year apart. Though the trip was difficult, little Rosa was able to see the journey like a big adventure. Get a glimpse of Rosa’s experience in this piece titled “We Were Animals”
Rosa is the Winner of the 2022 CBS Leadership Pipeline Challenge for the piece “In Tune”. Read how President & CEO of Paramount, Robert M. Bakish gave the winning film “In Tune” a shout out on LinkedIn here
She was introduced to the arts at a very young age, and found herself attending a nonprofit film school right out of high school. This experience afforded her the ability to work in the Film and Television industry in shows like Despierta America at Univision, and learn about Development for films at DreamWorks Studios with ColorForce, Inc. Later, Rosa attended University California Berkeley, where she studied Creative Writing, Theater, Dance Performance and majored in English. She even became a Short Story teacher for the Peter Chernin Peer Workshop sessions.
After graduating from Cal, Rosa took her camera and traveled to Istanbul in Turkey, Paris, Brazil, Salt Lake City, New York and Perú. On this journey, she took the time to investigate her work in media and her personal relationships to communities around the world. This experience alongside her history as an immigrant in Los Angeles enriched her storytelling abilities as a writer, filmmaker and documentarian. She later found a home at Casa 0101 Theater through a playwriting class and became a writer/associate producer for the Chicanas, Cholas, y Chisme play festival. She now serves on the Casa 0101 Theater Board.

Rosa is interested in developing stories that center and enrich the dimensionality of womenhood through characters who fight against all odds to achieve their dreams. She loves collaborating and telling stories about strong women and children with super powers. Rosa is a co-creator on various projects, and has a warm spot in her heart for Science Fiction or Indigenous Futurism. As a strong collaborator, her goal is to someday be part of a television writer’s room. Follow some of her journey on IG/Twitter, @mizperu.
