Shirley "Star" Diaz

Shirley Diaz joined the Radio Rookies program in August 2007 and spent the next seven months producing her story about growing up in New York's foster care system.

She works full-time in a downtown law firm, a job she got after a listener at the firm heard her story on the radio. Diaz loves to write music and sing; her dream is to be an entertainer.
