Zendaya Hopes to Inspire Change

Emmy-Award winner Zendaya has a few projects coming up that you'll be hearing about. There is a sequel to "Spider-Man: Homecoming," a re-telling of the classic sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert, "Dune" and one that is already generating Oscar buzz, "Malcolm & Marie."

The Netflix release reunites Zendaya with director Sam Levinson, the creator of "Euphoria," for which she won the Emmy as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. At 24 she became the youngest actress to take the prize:

"Malcolm and Eddie" is currently scheduled for a February release. With an Executive Producer credit as well as the lead role in the film, Zendaya seems ready to become a force across the spectrum of film, television, music, and fashion.

Motivated to continue working at her craft, Zendaya also realizes that she has a position of influence from which she can engage to help promote social change.

"Specifically with Black Lives Matter and everything, I feel an obligation to make sure that I'm aware and putting out the right things and in line with organizers and people who are on the ground."

With her influence and past support of causes such as Convoy of Hope, Unicef, Communities in Schools, and DonorsChoose.org, Zendaya is looking to the future and putting in the work professionally and socially.
