Amandla Stenberg, teen extraordinaire, is now a high-school graduate. She received her diploma on Thursday (June 9), but it seems like only yesterday she was helping Katniss Everdeen survive in The Hunger Games.
The actress shared two pics on Instagram to commemorate the occasion, and both are perfect examples for all she represents.
The first pic included what should've been my senior quote.
"Graduated from high school today. shoutout 2 my haterz. cud not have done this without u," Stenberg captioned.
The second had her rocking a nose ring and tons of attitude while posing with her graduation cap and gown.
Honestly, I thought Stenberg was already in college because she seems wise beyond her years. Her outspoken, unapologetic views about bisexualism, the beauty double standard, and cultural appropriation are extremely eye-opening and thoughtful.
Plus, she's a huge feminist, style icon, and even a comic book author — and she's only 17 years old. Congrats on graduating and being an influential social media presence, Amandla! We look forward to all you'll accomplish in the future.
