Amandla’s birthday is coming up! She’ll be turning 18 on October 23! To celebrate, I’ll be doing my first birthday project for her. It’ll be a long video that I will put on my YouTube channel and try to send to her. I will be accepting pictures of you with a sign, videos of you wishing her a happy birthday, typed out messages, picture edits, and video edits. However, I might not include your music for video edits as I will already have music for the edit in general. Please try your best to keep videos under 20 seconds, if you’d like yours to be longer, please ask me about it ahead of time. I will be having a limit of 2 submissions, and they are all due October 15. To enter, email me at absolutelyamandla@gmail.com. Make sure to include your name, country, and submission. If you have a question about any of the rules, please let me know via Instagram or email.
Thank you and I’m excited to see what you come up with! If you can, please spread the word about this, I’d love for as many people as possible to join!

Amandla was featured in Glamour’s September Issue!

She and Rowan Blanchard shared a selfie to which Amandla wrote “The thing that makes makeup or clothing or fashion beautiful is the fact that the person wearing them loves themselves and loves being able to use them as artistic tools. Find beauty in your core first before you go out into the world and find it in other ways.”

Amandla was then asked to describe herself, to which she said “Amandla Stenberg is a social activist, an artist, and a lover of the 2007 emo scene as well as Trader Joe’s cookies. She believes in finding beauty in your core first before you go out into the world.”

She participated in the American Women Perform 13 Classic Dance Moves in 60 Seconds video where she did the “Cha Cha Slide” starting at 0:33.

According to several sources, Amandla has been cast as the main character Maddy in Everything, Everything, an adaptation of the book by Nicola Yoon. Nick Robinson has also been cast in it as Olly. The film will be directed by Stella Meghie, with a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe.

Goodreads description:
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
