Amandla Stenberg Is One Of The 20 Most Futuristic Stars Under 20
Amandla Stenberg is one of Vibe’s 20 most futuristic stars under 20. The list presents the “torchbearers for a new generation”.
Capturing the crown of cuteness and controversy in 2012′s The Hunger Games, Amandla Stenberg is redefining what it means to be a teen titan. The 13-year-old Los Angeles native utilized her big break after working years in the underground. Since the age of four, Stenberg done everything from modeling shoots to commercials for Kmart to playing a young Zoe Saldana in Colombiana. Guess that’s why Amandla (which means “power” in Zulu) is growing to be a force in Hollywood.
With a determined spirit, true grit, and a professional demeanor that beguiles her years, Amandla Stenberg has a bright and positive future ahead of her. The most impacting item to note is that Stenberg is an advocate much like her fellow stars of the next millennium. Involved with Share Our Strength, also known as No Kid Hungry, Stenberg stands alongside an organization working to end childhood hunger in the United States.
