Zendaya is Really Becoming a Genuine Role Model for Girls

For those of you who don't know here, Zendaya is a Disney kid who is growing up to be a bona fide star. She had one of the cameos in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood music video so if that doesn't seal it...

Apart from that, you might remember her as the young woman who expertly defended her appearance after Giuliana Rancic trashed it on Fashion Police. We're keeping a close eye on her.

She is a stunning, articulate, 19-year-old woman. She does not need to be altered in anyway. Therefore, when a magazine she did a shoot for did alter her image, she gave them this brilliant response via Instagram...

"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it. Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue."


At her very young age and with a hefty weight of fame over her, Zendaya is proving herself to be independent and strong willed and hopefully she'll continue to be a role model that parents would like their young daughters to look up to.
