Back in 2002, we were collectively inspired by a group of Latina cheerleaders who made us never want to stop chanting “Sí se puede!” This all came from the Disney Channel original movie Gotta Kick It Up!, in which a Biology teacher led a group of girls to cheerleading greatness as she simultaneously taught them to believe in themselves.

And soon we’ll see her in A Futile and Stupid Gesture, a Netflix original movie that premieres on January 26th.
We can’t wait to check out her new show – especially since we could always use a “Sí se puede!” reminder.
