Amandla Stenberg praises mom Karen Brailsford
My mom reminds me that all things are possible. If I'm feeling insecure, she'll say, 'Hey, you're Rue!' Within months after reading the novel "The Hunger Games" I went from telling my mom I could see myself as this character to actually getting the role. My mother reminds me that if I could manifest such an important role just because I wanted it, all things are possible. I once made a cartoon drawing of my mother as a superhero. I called her Karen Possible. It still hangs on her office bulletin board.
One is the highlights of the photo shoot was seeing legend Jayne Kennedy with her daughters. I was also happy to be wearing orange, a favorite color. Making the contents page? A fun surprise!
Lots of hair, makeup and a hug.
