Amandla Stenberg in Essence Magazine with Mom
Here’s an adorable image of Amandla Stenberg with her mother Karen Brailsford. The mother and daughter pair will be featured in the May issue of Essence for a Mother’s Day piece. The magazine hits stands April 12.
“My mom reminds me that all things are possible,” said Stenberg. “If I’m feeling unsure, she’ll say, ‘Hey, you’re Rue!’ Within months after reading the novel The Hunger Games, I went from telling my mom that I could see myself as this character to actually getting the role. My mother reminds me that if I could manifest such an important role just because I wanted it so much, all of my dreams are possible.”
