BET TV Host Rocsi Diaz to Promote Education to Military Kids in Italy
Tuesday, September 04, 2012
Actress and TV personality Raquel “Rocsi” Diaz is bound for Italy to visit military kids during a USO tour on Sept. 8-13. The host of BET’s flagship show “106 & Park,” Diaz is scheduled to visit three military bases to talk with youngsters about transitioning back to school, building self-esteem, halting bullying and the importance of education.
“Throughout my life I have been blessed with so many opportunities and I can’t thank our men and women in the U.S. armed forces enough for allowing me to live out my dreams,” Diaz said. “Who better to relay my appreciation to than our nation’s troops, military families, and the USO. I can’t wait to arrive in Italy and spend time talking to kids about the everyday challenges they face.”
This will be Diaz’s second USO tour – she visited Germany in 2010 – and will signal her final stint as co-host of “106 & Park” before embarking on a career in acting. Diaz can soon be seen in upcoming movies “Soul Ties” and “The Last Letter,” starring Lynn Whitfield.
The “106 & Park” program has focused on important topics like anorexia, body dysmorphia, teenage pregnancy and parenting.
