This week Zendaya was crowned Women of the Year at the Australian GQ Men of The Year Awards. There’s seriously nothing this woman can’t do! From causing serious style envy, to her incredible voice and acting skills, (if you haven’t watched Euphoria, you must) she is the woman to watch in 2020. In her acceptance speech, she talked about the negative effects of being busy all the time. She said, “I forget to be present in these kinds of moments where you look around and just take it in and just be happy and alive for a second”. Yes girl! Celebrate!
Millie Bobby Brown Makes An Epic UN Speech On Bullying
Another amazing woman we look up to is Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things. She’s added UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador to her resume and took to the podium for World Children’s Day to talk about her experiences with bullying. Back in 2018, Millie deactivated her Twitter account because of all the trolling and harassment she was experiencing online. “You are not alone”, she said. “There are people who care about you. There are people who will listen if you reach out for help. You have rights”.
