DANAI GURIRA SHINES AS COVER GIRL FOR EBONY MAGAZINE JUNE EDITION

Danai Gurira, also known as Okoye – our favourite General is the cover girl for June’s issue of Ebony magazine and she looks like an absolute delight. Gurira wants to be remembered for the stories she shares and the opportunities she gives other women.

She speaks to Ebony on Career, success and inclusion.

“Gurira posed for her EBONY photo shoot, radiating the aura of someone who knows where she is in life yet is still on a mission to get where she wants to go. While dancing to Diana Ross’ infectious 1979 single “The Boss,” she was honest about being just like almost every other Black woman: wanting to read more, rarely fitting in time to cook and being a bit too attached to her phone. And still, she is continuing her growth as a full-fledged, multihyphenate: actress/writer/producer and wildlife activist.” – EBONY MAGAZINE.
