I don’t know about anyone else but this was on my mind at the beginning of award season. Her recognition by EVERY CELEBRITY for not only her beauty but also her humble and gentle personality. I began my research on her…

At age 16, Nyong’o returned to Mexico to learn spanish. Nyong’o went to college in the US earning a degree in film in 2003 from Hampshire College. Nyong’o earned a masters degree from Yale school of Drama in 2012
Fast forward to 12 years A Slave…The movie where she won every award possible. An the most prestigious Academy Award for best supporting actress. With her striking red carpet appearances she has quickly become a fashion icon. She looks so good in every color and its so elagant and classy…Her acceptance speech AMAZING “It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is due to so much pain in someone else’s…No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”
Her grace has me in awe, I dream to have a conversation with her..
