Hollywood’s darling is ’12 Years A Slave’ star Lupita Nyong’o, who graciously accepted her first Oscar last night. Before the show, she shared how she personally has grown to love her Black beauty and hopes to inspire other young girls to do the same. Watch the inspiring speech here.

In the video above, Lupita shares the story of how model Alex Wek changed the face of beauty in America and “saved” her from her endless bargaining with God for lighter skin. She also reveals that the true measure of beauty is in the amount of compassion a person has.
