Cinderella of 2022

The wish she made every night to turn her skin white when she wake up.

Her mom inspired her with an advice to focus on her inner beauty.

Her inner confidence grew.

Her hard work surprised her two days after her birthday

first Kenyan ever to win an Oscar for her supporting role in the movie 12 Years a Slave

She felt the world looking at her not for her skin color but for her hard work.

Lupita Nyong’o a proud Oscar award winner who once was worried for her skin color, now being proud for who she is.
