Her activism and dedication to her non-profit organization Love Our Girls: 

Of which she’s consistently championing by always sharing touching and empowering stories:

When she rocked a pair of wings for a cause:

Long story short, she’s the perfect role model:

Her heartfelt message about Steven Yeun proved just how special The Walking Dead is and that when they say they’re a family, they mean it:

So I’ve been in denial. The thought, the notion of losing Glenn as a character in the show and @steveyeun as a colleague is something I am yet to fully wrap my mind around. Steven was to me, from the very start, that deeply specific indicator that I was in the right place as I entered the TWD realm. The minute I was cast, he was in touch, inviting me to a lunch he and Lauren organized and trying to come watch my play The Convert which was then in production. Once I made it to GA, he helped me figure out where to stay, even letting me crash in his place over a weekend as I scouted out this new terrain called Atlanta. His kindness, his passion, his purity of heart, his genuine goodness and his amazing sense of humor makes him one of the best people I know. His dedication to our show, to this family, his deep concern with all things concerning the story we strive to tell, his utter commitment, his outrage, provokes me to be better, to dig deeper. The heart he brought to every frame he occupied inspired us all to never be complacent. One of my favorite things in life is to make Steven laugh. He has one of those laughs that revives the dead, that fills you with inexplicable joy. His ability to make me laugh, that deep belly laugh that makes life a little lighter, is something I am pained to accept I won’t have daily access to. Over the years I have grown to learn how similar Steven and I are, from our migrant families, to our college majors to our faith. He’s my brother. I’ve been in denial, and remain so. I am so excited, however, to watch his journey continue to unfold, he is designed to break barriers, to fill the world with stories that must and have yet to be told. He is built to transcend and will forever be my friend. And that makes me thankful to know him and to start to accept that painful truth, that our work relationship has sadly, at this time, come to an end.

She’s also great friends with Bono, which is totally cool:

When she had a joint birthday party with Lupita and shared this amazing photo with Daniel Kaluuya with the hashtag- #WakandansInZamunda:
