On camera, Antoinette Robertson plays a sassy, opinionated college student Colandrea "Coco" Conners on Netflix's new series, Dear White People. But away from the spotlight, she's an adventurous, charismatic Bronx native who loves connecting to her Jamaican roots.

With appearances on Donald Glover's Atlanta, OWN's The Haves & Have Nots and her high profile role as Coco on Justin Simien's Dear White People , it's clear Antoinette is trying to make her mark on Hollywood - and she's doing it her way. From snorkeling to trapeze lessons and days just spent in the park, the budding actress can't help but share her life through photos (but we don't mind because she looks pretty damn good doing it)!

If you don't know Antoinette, it's time to get to know the woman behind Coco's sassy character.
