Inside Lupita Nyong'o's Life through Lucky Magazine

We have been intrigued by everything Lupita,for the whole of 2014. Now, Lucky Magazine did a thorough interview of her as a person, her family, social media and more. here are some of her testimonials that got me interested...
When asked about Makeup: “My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life—not even at her wedding. Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and I wanted to experiment. But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself. My mother didn’t think makeup was necessary, and I don’t think it’s necessary. It’s an accessory. It’s as necessary as a pair of earrings, if you know what I mean. It’s something I do to adorn myself. I don’t do it to hide myself.”
We have all heard about Lupita's family success... Here is what Lucky magazine wrote;
"All of my life, my father was a high-profile person,” says Nyong’o, whose dad, Peter, a professor and political activist, is now a senator in the Kenyan parliament. If there is a slacker in the Nyong’o family, we can’t find one: Her mother, Dorothy, is on the board of the Africa Cancer Foundation; her cousin Isis is a technology executive who was voted one of the most powerful young women in Africa; and her cousin Tavia is a respected cultural critic. “Being brought up in the family that I was brought up in, we were always in a position of example. So it’s something I don’t wrestle with. I don’t question it. I accept it.” Considering her ability to wow a crowd and her willingness to speak out for causes she believes in, it’s easy to envision Nyong’o herself one day holding office. “I think there should be a rule: One politician per family,” she demurs.
When talking about Self Confidence and NOT Doubting yourself, Lupita reveals about that inner voice of self doubt; "I still hear it once in a while? Only on a daily basis.It’s not a voice one should get rid of. It keeps you in check. It focuses you. You just have to manage it and not let it get stronger than the voice that says ‘You can do this.’ ”
This 32 year old Kenyan girl is quite an inspiration...
