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.

Basically, it was a film all about badass, empowered young women. And what’s better than that?

Okay, there is one thing that’s better than that and it involves a whole ‘lotta nostalgia. Specifically, what we’re saying is that we’re going to take a look at where Daisy, the leading lady of Gotta Kick It Up!, is today.

She was played by actress Camille Guaty-Kaye (on the right), who was 24 years old at the time.

As for what she looks like nowadays, 16 years after this DCOM was released:

Since her time on Gotta Kick It Up!, Camille has continued to act and has starred on TV shows such as: Prison Break, The Vampire Diaries, and Scorpion.

Here’s what she looked like on Scorpion, a show she starred on from 2014 to 2015:

She was also on the TV series The Exorcist from 2016 to 2017.

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.
