On My Block’s Diego Tinoco may be a part of the most streamed show on Netflix, but during this time home, he has been catching up on other shows like Elite, movies and documentaries. The 22-year-old bachelor, who hails from Corona, California, has been home in Los Angeles honing his craft and writing. Recently, he along with his co-stars joined the ALL IN Challenge to offer a lucky fan the chance to hang with them at a pool side barbecue. The proceeds for the contest are going to Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

Favorite part of my house: My couch where I can watch all my favorite TV shows, movies and documentaries.
What have you learned about yourself during this time: I’ve learned that I can adapt to my circumstances really well. I’m constantly around people and love it, but to be alone is just as peaceful if not more, though I do miss my family back home and my dog ha!
Show you’re binge-watching: Elite
How are you passing the time: Reading and writing
Project you’re working on: A script I’ve been meaning to write!
How are you staying positive: I FaceTime my family back home and check up on them and chat and laugh.
Something you’ll take with you after quarantine: We have so much access and excess and freedom in our lives. It’s time to really start being grateful for all the small details we take for granted.
Message of hope: We WILL get through this together. All of us. Be considerate, be grateful, and know we will be back even stronger and more appreciative. Use this time to get in tune with yourself emotionally, mentally and physically. Use this time to love yourself.
