At only age 20, Spiderman Homecoming’s Zendaya can already be considered a role model to millions of people who watch her projects, listen to her music, and more. Tonight at the Teen Choice Awards after winning Choice Summer Movie Actress, she again used her voice to share her wisdom and knowledge with the teen fanbase.
“Right now I wanna talk to all the young people in the audience, I want you all to listen. With all the injustice and the hatred and everything that is happening, not only in the world but in our country, I need for you guys to be educated, I need you to listen, I need you to pay attention. I need you to go ahead and understand that you have a voice and it’s ok to use it when you see something bad happening,” said Zendaya about the rally that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This isn’t the first time Zendaya has used her voice in a positive way to shed light on an important issue. She uses her Twitter to be a role model and start important conversations. In fact she even said “I have a billion dreams, and I want to use my platform to help people,” to Vanity Fair not long ago.
