In between overdoing it

This girl is not only beautiful on the outside, she is full of grace on the inside. I know I would have never been so poised and together had this comment come to me about my family. Saw this story on MSN.com and just had to share it. So happy to find young adults like this that my daughter can look up to as a role model.

Zendaya Coleman has defended her parents against Twitter trolls who called them ugly.

The 18-year-old Disney starlet was left shocked after people made disparaging remarks about the appearance of her mother Claire Stoermer and father Kazembe Ajamu and in response she wrote a heartfelt message about how proud she is of her family.

One Twitter user originally shared a picture of the star with her parents and wrote: “they made a gorgeous a– child lol (sic)” and another replied saying: “her parents really ugly I really would cry (sic).”

But Zendaya hit back and tweeted: “First I’m gonna pray for you. While you’re so concerned about what my parents look like, please know that these are two of the most selfless people in the world. “They have chosen to spend their entire life, not worried about trivial things such as looks and insulting people’s parents on Twitter, but instead became educators who have dedicated their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow mind (one of the most important yet underpaid jobs we have).

“So please, log out, go to school, hug a teacher and read a textbook … and while you’re at it, go look in the mirror and know that you too are beautiful, because such hateful things only stem from internal struggles. Bless you.”

  2. God. Such wise words… I am not sure I would have been able to be that polite to those haters. She’s a better person than I am and I am much older than she!
