When ur looking out the window thinking about how the internet exacerbates a fleeting sense of time and the pressure to present a digestible identity and then u realize that ur just a bizarre creature with a heartbeat and an instagram

Dazed: What are your thoughts on using your platforms as a catalyst for change? As activists, how do we galvanise action beyond social media and the internet? / AS: I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently because, growing up having this platform, I feel a consistent responsibility to utilise it well. I think, for a long amount of time, the most effective thing was to use my platform to speak out openly about the topics that were important to me, such as cultural appropriation, black women feeling their power and learning how to have self-confidence – especially black teenage girls. / That was really important for me for a period, (and still is) but I’m not sure it’s the most effective (thing) any more. I feel like social media is a little oversaturated with some of those conversations – not to say that they aren’t important – but I think now is a really critical moment for me to move from conversations to action. / Now I feel like it’s my job to infiltrate some of the mainstream media and see what changes I can make just by creating that representation. There’s a power in being part of projects like Everything, Everything (upcoming film in which Stenberg plays a reclusive teen who falls for the boy next door), which is a teen romance movie, but also one of the first teen romance movies to feature an interracial couple. I see it as sneaking in the medicine with the candies.
Everything, Everything comes out May 19th!
