Alexis Tirado, New York, NY
Proud Puerto Rican, pop culture vulture, lively editor (or so they tell me.) I’m obsessed with the Notorious B.I.G. and my 70-year-old dad, RayRay. Big advocate of the Dream Act and in general, the rights of immigrants. ¡Sí Se Puede! Former bosses are Martha Stewart and Alicia Keys. Claim to fame: I was once in the same room as Beyoncé and Jay-Z and almost fainted. Been wanting to work at MTV since I was 12. #Truth Read Alexis’ recent posts.

I’ve been championing causes ever since I was a little kid — even if that cause was just to get my parents to adopt more animals. I’ve also always been a writer, a feminist, a dog and cat parent, and a really big Beyonce fan. Like I have a canvass painting of her hanging over my desk at work. Read Caitlin’s recent posts.
Jose Iniguez, Los Angeles, CA
California born and raised, UNESCO Millennium Dreamer, and MTV Twitter Jockey top 5 finalist. Lover of all things Latin, spicy, flawless, and/or fierce. (JLo, Beyoncé, Ricky Martin y mi mama también are great examples.) Passionate about empowering youth in underrepresented communities to achieve their full potential. Equally passionate about empowering others to help achieve that. Read Jose’s recent posts.
Alexandra Govere, Los Angeles, CA
Songwriter, AIDS Activist, cast member on The Real World: San Diego, but hoping that’s not what you remember me for. Grew up in Zimbabwe, which sparked my passions for activism and philanthropy. I started college at 12, studied Civil Engineering at Stanford University, and am a hopeless romantic who once scared a boy away by writing a love song about him…after the first date. Oops.
