This year, Amandla Stenberg was one of two young women named Feminist Celebrity of the Year by the Ms. Foundation for Women. She’s 17 years old, by the way.

Amandla spent 2015 shutting down appropriation, writing about black women in the media, and encouraging young women to join STEM fields (That’s science, technology, engineering and maths).

Looks like our “Amandla Stenberg for World Role Model Status” has already been made for us. Take some time to read up on what she’s been doing and get ready to feel mega-inspired.
