Last week, Disney announced that its first Latina princess, Princess Elena of Avalor, will be voiced by Dominican-born and Miami-raised actress Aimee Carrero, who also stars in ABC Family's "Young & Hungry." A few facts about Aimee: the 26-year-old went to Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High and originally wanted to be a lawyer but instead decided "I'm just gonna go to FIU" to get a degree in international relations. Why do we say that? Because Carrero is the super tired, super hungry, salmon-and-pink-wine-loving chick who can't deal with that tiki tiki music from the "Sh*t Miami Girls Say" video. Mind? BLOWN.
