Star of Orange Is the New Black and In the Heights, Dascha Polanco reveals that her path to fame was far from easy. In this episode of Role Model, she talks about her struggles as an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, becoming a teen mom, body dysmorphia and her father’s incarceration.
With all this trauma, many would have let their dreams fall away… Not Dascha. She dug deep, and she shares with Leomie how she found the strength to keep fighting and fulfil her destiny.
