It Girl: Lupita Nyong'o

Born in Mexico City to Kenyan parents, it girl Lupita Nyong'o is the second oldest of six children. The family returned to Africa when she was less than a year old. Her parents encouraged her artistic nature, and Nyong'o began acting in school plays and eventually went on to earn a master's degree in acting from the prestigious Yale University. As luck would have it, right out of college Lupita landed her big screen breakthrough in '12 Years a Slave', a role which earned her multiple awards, including an Oscar.
