How can you not love Lupita Nyong’o? She’s not only an amazing actress, but also has a beautiful spirit. I think it’s safe to say that when she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave at last night’s 86th Annual Academy Awards, she had the best acceptance speech.
“When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.“
When she said it, it stuck with me. As you go into your Monday today, dreading it, may you be reminded that no matter where you are in the world, life, business, career, or school and no matter where you’re from, that you remember your dreams are valid and that they can come true.
