Zendaya Covers Cosmo

This kid is going places.

Zendaya-Cosmopolitan-July-2016Zendaya is Cosmopolitan’s latest cover star. In the accompanying interview, the 19-year-old came across as wise beyond her years.

When discussing her return to Disney, Zendaya said she wanted to use her position to improve the network’s programming in a meaningful way.

“The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power,” she explained. “One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It’s hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is very important.”

The July issue of Cosmo hits newsstands June 7.
