Rocsi Diaz of BET‘s 106 & Park appears in the latest issue of YRB Magazine that drops next week! She speaks about life after 106 & Park and what’s next. Check out the photos and interview below…
After seven years as co-host of the longest running video show in history, Rocsi Diaz has put down the mic and made her exit from BET’s 106 & Park. On a continuous journey of progression, the New Orleans native has set her sights on Hollywood with upcoming film projects and doesn’t plan to look back. Styled out in the latest collection of Issey Miyake, this focused, young woman is determined to showcase other facets of her character.Showcasing Issey Miyake’s current collection from lead designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae, Rocsi embodies the gentleness and strength behind the label’s presentation, entitled “Bloom Skin.” Forever thinking ahead, the Japanese brand, together with one of America’s best-known television personalities, are destined to continue to make marks for themselves well beyond this season.
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.”
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.”
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.”
