@AmandlaStenberg- A #Fearless Leader In The Making

Photography Gregory Harris// Styling Robbie Spencer Amandla Stenberg may be just 16 years old, but she's showing the world that she's not to be fucked with. She speaks her truth and says it like it is. The fearless Hunger Games star showed the world her powerful voice in her "Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows” video earlier this year, which takes shots at celebrities engaging in cultural appropriation. She is currently featured on the cover of Dazed Magazine where she shares her fearlessness, underestimating the intelligence of our youth and more.

“I think people discredit teenagers and how wise they can be,” says Stenberg. “Sometimes I meet teenagers who are much wiser than many adults I’ve met, because they haven’t let any insecurities or doubts about themselves get in the way of their thoughts.”  Young, hyper informed and conscious youth-you have an actress who is just like you. Amandla is certainly a fearless leader in the making and I can't wait to see how she continues to empower the voices of this generation.
