Know Your Worth It’s Important
Zendaya explained identifying your power and worth is the first step of leading a successful life. She stated that she had just been doing Disney Channel for so long. She started my journey when she was 13 years old. However, by the time Zendaya was 17, she had a better focus and understanding of what she wanted. She noticed a lot of times in this industry that it is about recognizing your power and not selling yourself short, it’s kind of like that stupid thing of knowing your worth, and it’s like knowing what you can bring to the table. And I knew that I had more to offer in a more professional capacity.”
