Lupita Nyong’o Interview with Larry Madowo
Oscar-winning actor and global beauty ambassador for L’Oreal Lupita Nyong’o returned to Kenya this week as the first Kenyan ever to win an Oscar. The African beauty just wrapped up filming her latest movie ‘Queen of Katwe’ in South Africa and will debut in ‘Star Wars’ later this year. Lupita engages here in a delightful, reflective interview with Kenyan journalist Larry Madowo.
AOC loved Lupita before she won an Oscar. But to open an email from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, where we support orphan elephants, and read that the stellar woman Lupita was there — as evidenced in this magnificent photo — brought tears to our eyes.
In addition to joining WildAid on behalf of elephants, Lupita will be promoting women’s causes, acting and the arts in her native Kenya. She also visited Amboseli National Park and filmed public service messages for international distribution in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, China, Hong Kong, Thailand and the United States.
She also met with Kenya-based African Wildlife Foundation and Save the Elephants who partner on these projects, as well as representatives of Wildlife Direct, and Ol Pejeta and Lewa Conservancies — all groups active in combating poaching in Kenya.
