Lupita Nyong’o is my new patronus.
The article I read this week that simply could not shut up about was NYMag’s discussion about the fact that Lupita Nyong’o is considered an “it” girl despite being a decade older than most “it” girls. The reason I loved this article so much is it gives hope to those of us in our early 30s who are just now going back for advanced degrees; in other words, I really identified with the Nyong’o’s career narrative.
