Hollywood’s sweetheart Lupita Nyong’o has conquered in the realms of acting and fashion. In her first role as Patsey in the film 12 Years a Slave, she was awarded her first Oscar. Since then, she has been working on four new movies including the upcoming blockbuster Star Wars film The Force Awakens set to be released this December.
Lupita has been all over the world as a fashion figure. She has been front row at many fashion shows and photographed at many red carpet events. Also, Lupita is the face of Lancome. Honestly, I think we all saw that coming though, her skin is flawless. Lupita can transition into any designer gown, no matter what the style. It certainly works in her favor because she looks good in almost everything.
We may know Lupita for her acting primarily however Lupita is a humanitarian as well. As her celebrity rises, it is important to Luptita to use it wisely.
“I think I can make a difference by having certain stories be told. But it’s in the hope that I will not always be the only one telling them.”
“I wanted to go back to Kenya with something to say. I was raised with a strong sense of charity. When I was younger I volunteered with an orphanage. I did a lot of organizing of church events.”
Lupita is the ambassador of the WildAid organization, face of Lancome and a breakout actress in Hollywood. She is certainly deserving of her accolades and success. I hope she continues to positively impact the world and encourages everyone to follow their dreams. As Lupita once said during her Oscar acceptance speech, “Your dreams are valid.”
