Diana Carolina Grisales: Despite having a degree in Advertising and Marketing, Diana Carolina works as a taxi driver in the executive cab company named Fast Line. Has a professional license and sometimes she has to work up to eleven hours a day.
Rosario Sandoval: Is a lieutenant of the Transit Commission of Ecuador. She used to participates in speed control operations performed in the Francisco de Orellana and Av. Rosario, she says she wants to be promoted to Colonel.
Rosy Granja: Lieutenant Junior and helicopter pilot of the Naval Nation, becoming the first female driver in its history.
Martiza Anchundia: Works as an aquatic lifeguard for the Ecuadorian Red Cross since 1985. Furthermore she’s a fitness teacher and provides consulting services to those who request them.

Tannya Varela: She is one of the four National police colonels and commands the district of Guayaquil.
