Zendaya is not to be messed with!

The singer, actress, activist, and feminist recently shared with Cosmo how she decided to come back to Disney channel and the tv series that made her famous, K.C Undercover.

The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power. One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel.”

She added,

“It’s hard as a younger person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is important.”

And now that Zendaya is also a co-producer in addition to the series’ star, she’s finally in a position where she can have real influence. We can’t wait to see what she does with it!
