Amandla Stenberg Covers Teen Vogue Volume 3 The Icons Issue
Talk about girl power! Two actresses and budding supermodel are showing young girls everywhere that they can be bonafide achievers. Miss Stenberg is very excited about her latest cover with Teen Vogue. Regarding what she says inside the issue, Stenberg mentions,
“I am so honored to grace my second Teen Vogue cover and to be sharing Volume 3 The icons Issue with Kaia Gerber and Millie Bobby Brown. I swear, this sort of stuff still doesn’t feel real to me. And I regularly take moments to sit down, take a deep breath and count my blessings.
I was interviewed for this issue by the epitome of love, light and soul. My sis and friend, Janelle Monae. The cover quote was inspired by our conversation, in which Janelle said to me, ‘One of my mantras is ‘Embrace what makes you unique even if it makes others uncomfortable.’
I keep that with me in my back pocket. Shoot, I keep it in my front pocket! I keep it in my hair. We have to live that.
I told her the reason why I feel like I’m able to embrace myself is because of icons like her. Who carve out spaces that the world says shouldn’t exist. Joyous, creative spaces.
It is so imperative to revel in that joy and creativity at this moment. Even if it is difficult and seems at odds with the state of the world.”
