… and the accolades continue as

Not always convinced of her incredible physical allure,
Ms. Nyong’o once believed that the ideal image of physical attractiveness,
was that which was the polar opposite of herself, which she defined as:
“Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair.”
“Subconsciously you start to appreciate
those things more than what you possess.”
It was her mother who continually told her that she was beautiful.
“And I finally believed her at some point.”, stated Ms. Nyong’o.
Ms. Nyong’o is humble in her acknowledgment of the praise
bestowed by the weekly magazine:
“It is exciting and just a major, major compliment.”
“I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it]
and feel a little more seen.”
… so eloquently stated, Ms. Nyongo.
