Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 2/28/13- Quvenzhane Wallis History-Making Little Giant


Quvenzhane Wallis History-Making Little Giant

Quvenzhane Kwe-VEN-zhan-nay,  and means “fairy” in Swahili. Friends and family call her “Nazie” for short.  Quvenzhane is a charming and precious little girl who has warmed the heart of millions as she became the history-making little giant after receiving an Oscar nomination for her role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild”, at the age of nine. Quvenzhane  made history when she became  the youngest Best Actress nominee. At the tender age of five, she audition for  and garnered the role in “Beast of the Southern Wild”. Quvenzhane, plays “Hushpuppy”  a little daring young girl dealing with natural disaster and a dying father.

The talented history-making little giant, Quvenzhane, was born in Houma, Louisiana, the daughter of Qulyndreia, a teacher, and Venjie Wallis, Sr., a truck driver. “Quven”, the first part of her name, combines her parents’ first names, while her mother has stated that zhané means “fairy” in Swahili. http://bit.ly/Wq5MN2

The Oscar buzz and her skills in “Beast of the Southern Wild”, has landed Quvenzhane in the next production of “Annie” as well as you can see her in a film short “Bone Shaker”, and a feature film “Twelve Years A Slave”. Quvenzhane Wallis is a history-making little giant who has also made her presence known. Watching Quvenzhane on the red carpet at the Oscars was beautiful, seeing her with Academy Award winner Halle Berry, was priceless.For her accomplishments to this point in her life, Quvenzhane  is worthy of a round of applause and honor, she has truly earned it. The best is yet to come for Quvenzhane Wallis, her star is shining so bright!
