Fabiana Andreina Rosales Guerrero, also known as Fabiana Rosales de Guaidó, is a Venezuelan journalist and social media human rights activist. She is married to Juan Guaidó, president of the National Assembly and a claimant to the country's acting presidency in the 2019 Venezuelan presidential crisis. She is considered by the White House and the National Assembly of Venezuela as the First Lady of Venezuela.
Rosales was born in the town of Tovar, Mérida State, on April 22, 1992. Her father, Carlos, was a farmer, and her mother a journalist. As a child, she observed her mother's interviews and became interested in social issues. She assisted in running the family farm and decided to study journalism. Her father died after having a heart attack in 2013, for which she blames the shortages in Venezuela; she says "there was no medicine in his village to stabilize him, and no ambulance to take him to the nearest hospital".
In 2013, Fabiana graduated from Universidad Rafael Belloso Chacín with a degree in journalism and social communications. She worked in Mérida state for a city council as a press officer, and later held a similar position after moving to Caracas. She met Juan Guaidó at a youth rally, and they married in 2013. They have a daughter who was born in 2017.
