Today’s mixed chick of distinction is Zoe Saldana. Zoe was born and raised in Passaic, New Jersey. Her mother is Puerto Rican and her late father was Dominican which makes her 100% Latina and proud! She has risen through the ranks to become one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood. From her first role as a ballerina in Center Stage to her international breakout role as Neytiri in Avatar, Saldana is breaking down the barriers for women of all ethnicities. She is a wonderful example of being multiracial in today’s society and we are proud to call her our Mixed Chick of the Day!
