This Is One Of The Few Disney Character Latinas Saw Themselves In Growing Up

If you were a fan of the “Lizzie McGuire” show, then you probably remember one of Lizzie’s bestest friends, Miranda. From her colorful hairstyles, to her funky humor and badass personality, here’s why Lalaine Vergara-Paras, aka “Miranda,” was so relatable to many Disney fans. Now, the beloved show is coming back for Disney’s dtreaming platform Disney+ and we are all excited. While the news of a reboot itself is exciting, we are still waiting to hear if Lalaine Vegara-Paras will reprise her role as Miranda. We are all still gutted by her sudden departure to Mexico City before the junior high graduation so we will have to wait until after Nov. 12 for the show to hit Disney+ to find out.

In every “Lizzie McGuire” episode, these three were alwayyyys together.

Which is why the “Lizzie McGuire” show wouldn’t have been the same without her.

But she also knew how to keep it real.


She said things we wish we had the balls to say.

And being honest is what led to some of her most awe-inspiring moments throughout the “Lizzie McGuire” show.


This Disney star was dropping words of wisdom left and right, and she didn’t even know it.

And at times she proved she was just like us.


So. Did. We.

Miranda was the realest. She wasn’t afraid to tell it like it was, and that’s what everybody loved about her.

YASSS Miranda!! ??

Even though they had their ups and downs, Miranda always stood up for her bestie, Lizzie.?

They’ve been comadritas since the early 2000’s.

She was that badass best friend everyone wanted to have.?


Yup, definitely best friend goals. ??

But if there’s one thing you remember about Miranda, it’s that she matched her colorful personality to her hair.


Who didn’t try this style after watching her on “Lizzy McGuire”?

She debuted a new hair color with almost every episode.


Which was sort of hard to keep up with.?

Her pigtails, buns and bangs were her all-time signature.

Along with those little stringy things.

She was definitely a fan of mixing colors and patterns.

Puro SWAG.

And there was no such a thing as “too many accessories” when it came to Miranda.??

From hair pins, to ribbons, earrings, and necklaces, Miranda rocked it ALL.

Altogether, from her obsession with boy bands…

Miranda Sanchez became one of our favorite Disney characters in the early 2000s.
