Break out star and red carpet phenom, Lupita Nyong’o has captivated us all with her style and grace. On Sunday, the world watched as she accepted the prestigious Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in the film ’12 Years A Slave’. She gave a heartfelt acceptance speech and expressed sincere gratitude and reminded us all that “No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”
Although powerful, in my opinion, Lupita’s Oscar speech wasn’t the most impactful speech given, to this date.
Last week she was honored at the Essence Magazine ‘Black Women in Hollywood’ event and it was there she gave an more profound and awe inspiring speech on beauty and acceptance.
Chime in, what are your thoughts of Lupita’s speech?
