Raised in Kenya from the age of three, she is the daughter of Kenyan politician Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o. Lupita’s educational journey took her to the United States, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in film and theatre studies from Hampshire College. Her passion for acting led her to pursue a master’s degree in acting from the Yale School of Drama. After her graduation, she quickly rose to prominence with her Academy Award-winning performance as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s biopic “12 Years a Slave”.

In the groundbreaking film “Black Panther,” Lupita Nyong’o’s portrayal of Nakia, a War Dog and former lover of the title character, was not just a role but a statement. Her character embodied the strength and complexity of African women, challenging the typical narrative and offering a new perspective on African success and aspiration. Nyong’o’s performance and the film itself had a profound impact, fostering a more mainstream cultural consciousness and celebrating the richness of African heritage.

Her dedication to the role, including mastering the Xhosa language, showcased her commitment to authenticity and contributed significantly to the film’s cultural resonance.
