“I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating,” she said at the virtual ceremony, surrounded by her family.

“But I just want to say there is hope in the young people out there – I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that – but there is hope in our young people and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, ‘I see you, I admire you, I thank you.'”

Its heart warming to see a young role model like Zendaya use her platform to send a message of hope in this difficult times. we love you Zendaya!
