It's no surprise that Haskiri Velazquez acquired the "do it myself" attitude. Growing up in Washington Heights NY, she didn't have the resources she needed to succeed in her career, but she never gave up. With many pursuits outside of school, Haskiri attended a non-profit organization called Urban Arts Partnership, where she took their Lifestories Theater program. Her passion for Acting was known from the start as she would have busy school days and Auditions during the week, and during the weekends, she would attend her theater classes for about 6 hours a day (which, by the way, was about a two-hour subway ride to and from her home). Haskiri put on lots of black-box productions at Theater Row in Times Square and even at the Lucille Lortel Theater with her theater program where she captured her audiences. During this time, Haskiri had the opportunity to be directed by Gina Rodriguez, Jesse Williams, and Victor Maog. Though she started off as a theater kid, it wasn't long after her graduating the program and becoming an Alumni that she transitioned into TV/Film. Her first on-screen role was in NYC 22 as 'Tatiana Garcia'; from that moment on, it was clear how much the camera loved her that even director David Rambo mentioned it to her father. Since then, Haskiri went on to booking more roles such as playing 'Shyvon Stevens' in Law&Order SVU (NBC), The Birch as recurring character 'Charlotte' for Facebook Watch, Guest Starring as 'Melissa Rodriguez' on Blue Bloods (CBS), 'Rosa' in the Forty-Year-Old Version feature film which premiered at Sundance (2020) and is set to premiere globally on Netflix (on October 9th). Most recently, Haskiri has been cast as 'Daisy,' the lead in the Saved By The Bell Reboot. Haskiri has plans to start her own Non-profit and hopes to inspire other Latinx to keep pursuing their dreams no matter how big it may seem. She also hopes to keep seeing the right representation for her fellow Latinx community on screen.
