Real Influential Women Role Models (Real and Fictitious): Mimi Marquez

Daphne-Rubin Vega originates the role on Broadway
Rosario Dawson as Mimi in the 2005 film version
Mimi Marquez (Rent) Though many people may not totally categorize a heroin-addicted, AIDS infected, exotic dancer as a woman role model, but there is one aspect about Mimi that I really admire. Despite the issues she may have, in practically every scene she is cheerful and always living life to the fullest. In fact, she is the one person who influences Roger to live “every moment as their last” and that there is “No Day But Today.”
