Rita Moreno

She is one of the most important women in Puerto Rican history. Rita was born in Humacao, Puerto Rico to a seamstress mother and a farmer father. She is the first and only Latina female to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony and only the second Puerto Rican to win an Academy Award. She has starred in close to 50 Films!! Her most acclaimed role being that of West Side Story in which she played "Anita" and won an Academy Award for. I love that first pic!
