“I’m meeting an idol. I’m literally meeting an idol,” 13-year-old Zaya exclaimed during a video Q&A with the former First Lady.

During the interview the adorable daughter of Dwyane Wade is visibly nervous and excited to share a screen with Mrs. Obama. After the jitters, the ladies discussed the newest young reader adaptation of Michelle’s best-selling memoir Becoming and shared advice for young teenagers finding their way. Zaya, dressed in a floral blouse and rocking red boxed braids, offered advice of her own.

We all think that we thrive with people who are just like us. Getting a different perspective from someone else who isn’t like you really helps. And that definitely helped me in becoming be and defining my truth.” Say that, Zaya!
