Amanda Sternberg had her first major role starring as Rue in The Hunger Games, but since then she has become known for using her voice to talk about topics such as feminism and race.
After her video, “Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows,” went viral, the 17-year old actress has literally been everywhere. Amandla is the co-author of the comic, Niobe: She is Life, she performs in the folk-rock duo Honeywater, and she most recently starred as Sarah in the drama As You Are.
On why she was drawn to Sarah’s character, Amandla attributes it to her own upbringing.
“I recognized her experience as a black girl in a primarily white environment, but also I was really drawn to the script and the director,” said Amandla in an interview with Teen Vogue. “Miles is really an incredible person. I feel like his way of looking at film is really beautiful and I was super inspired by it.”
But let’s not forget about the star’s style, she’s had some incredible fashion moments.
