JuanDi’s hit TV show! —Part of the Lupe & JuanDi from the Block Project.

With visible emotion on his face, Juan Diego reminisced: “When the Pope and Emilio Estefan knocked on my door, I didn’t know what was going on. But then Mr. Estefan said ‘Kid, you’re canonized—sit down and let Sandra prep you for your photo shoot’. And I felt like a dream had come true. Sitting at the makeup chair, being transformed under those bright lights, I knew my purpose in life: I would dedicate my life to guiding others through their own crossover-makeovers.” (NYT interview. Editor’s note: the term “crossover-cakeover” is a term coined by Latina Theatre Lab in their visionary song, “Estée Leedia”)
