Zendaya is more than just an actress, she is also someone willing to stand up for what she believes to be right. Not only has she been a voice for appropriation of other people’s culture (including defending herself when a commentator made negative comments about her hair), but she has even stepped up as a voice for feminism.

And that’s not all, as Zendaya has also made it clear that she is all about loving one’s self and being willing to speak up when people try to tear others down. It is her willingness to speak up and speak out that makes her an iconic and empowering woman in the world.

At the same time, she has also given us some amazing quotes that prove that she may just be wiser than people double her age. When it comes to talking about feminism, Zendaya has said that, “a feminist is a person who believes in the power of women just as much as they believe in the power of anyone else.”

It’s not just feminism that the actress has spoken out about. She has even given us impressive quotes about beauty, being positive in our lives, and even what it means to be different in a world that wants you to fit in.

If ever there was a woman to look up to in a world of celebrities, Zendaya is definitely at the top of the list.
