I have grown up with Zendaya and have flourished as a person with her.
"'Shake It Up' definitely teaches kids about the importance of reaching for your dreams and setting high goals. It also teaches great lessons about friendship and family."- Zendaya
One of my favorite features about Zendaya is that she continuously does herself to the fullest and isn't afraid to be quirky or divergent.
"Nobody's ugly, that doesn't exist. I say, take the time to get to know who you are, take the time to love yourself, and everything will be all right."- Zendaya
Little acts of confidence that Zendaya partakes, like wearing audacious outfits and funky hair to events, makes a big statement.
Zendaya being nominated for Breakout Artist of the Year shows me that if you set your mind to something, along with believing and achieving, you will succeed.
Zendaya stimulates a love in me for my individuality in life and influences me to be independent.
"That's the person I plan on being for a very long time: someone who stands up, someone who is an advocate for people, [even if it's for] something that some people think is only hair. I think it's more than just that. I want to be a spokesperson for self-love and for diversity."- Zendaya
Fast forward 5 years of my life and Zendaya doesn't fail to influence me and hep contribute to me becoming a better version of myself each and every day. In so many ways I can relate to her as a person and can connect to her outlooks on life and her goals, but at the same time I aspire to reach her level of nobility and self-worth.
Not only is Zendaya a model, singer, actress, and featured on the cover of many famous magazines, she is a women's rights ambassador and champion who is not afraid to speak her mind. Zendaya inspires me to be tenacious and become an over-achiever with everything she has accomplished over the years. She is very well-rounded and can conquer to balance many things at one time. She gives back to the community and is a sensational asset to society. I admire her zest for life and her perspective on how one should live.
