The Plot of Season One
The series begins in the future, with Elena Cañero-Reed (Rodriguez) being sworn in as president and Aisha Tyler serving as her chief of staff.
Elena receives her adolescent journal in the mail, which prompts a flashback to her 12-year-old self (Tess Romero). Back then, she lived in Miami with her lawyer mother Gabriela "Gabi" Cañero-Reed (Selenis Leyva), and her older brother Roberto "Bobby" Cañero-Reed (Charlie Bushnell).
She was entering middle school and was a brilliant study of things that may lead her to the White House one day. Season 1 primarily focuses on Elena and her awkwardness in navigating through adulthood.
However, Gabi and Bobby also have a storyline of their own. Gabi is a widow who is slowly experimenting with love. Even though she is a busy attorney, she develops an office romance with her colleague Sam Faber (Michael Weaver).
Unfortunately, Gabi has difficulty processing her feelings for Faber since she has not moved on from the death of her ex-husband. Similarly, Bobby is navigating his gender orientation.
He is a popular athlete at school who is loved by all. He develops feelings for a girl at school named Monyca, but he is not secure in the relationship.
Eventually, he develops feelings for his friend Liam after being stuck in a storage closet together. But Bobby has difficulty in navigating his feelings.
He falls in love with Liam, but he is not ready to come out and admit that he is a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Season one ends with Gabi and Bobby confused about what to do with their love life.
Elena, on the other hand, is becoming more and more interested in politics. As a result, season one ends with her deciding to run for student council.
