Get ‘Em Girl! Lupita Nyong’o’s Best Moments
Baller Since Birth
Daughter of Dorothy and Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, a member of Kenya’s parliament, Lupita Nyong’o has been unique since she took her first breath. Born in Mexico, she was given the name Lupita as homage to the country of her birth. Though she was largely raised in Africa, Lupita’s parents sent her back to Mexico when she was 16 so that she could learn Spanish. Her multi-cultural upbringing is certainly a breath of fresh air in Hollywood.
