It should come to no surprise what this post will entail. I, along with the rest of the free world, watched as Lupita Nyong’o received her well deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in ” 12 Years A Slave” last night. Her stunning beauty and poise captivated us all. I wanted to post the replay of her acceptance speech for you to enjoy again but it’s not available any longer on youtube ( the transcript can be found below ). She has motivated the masses and sparked a renewal in pride of being yourself and just as important, to believe in yourself, no matter where you are from. How can we take this historic moment and apply it to our lives to keep this momentum going?
