Xiomara Villanueva (Jane The Virgin)
Andrea Navedo‘s character on Jane The Virgin, struggling singer and single mother Xiomara Villanueva, doesn’t seem like a role model at first glance. The show jokes about her revealing outfits, her revolving door of men, and her poor decision making as a teen, but viewers can learn a lot from Xo. She has the confidence to chase her dreams, which is noble in and of itself, and she’s proven herself to be a competent, sacrificing, and loving single mother. Xo never chooses the easy way out, and she refuses to be anyone but herself.
