If You Only Ever Click On One More Lupita Nyong'o Story, Click This. It's Awesome

The Oscar winner may have taken Hollywood by storm but she's so much more than a run-of-the-mill celebrity and this video proves it

"I remember a time when I too felt un-beautiful"
To even attempt to convey the contents of this video would be to do it a grave injustice so I'll just set it up for you and let you behold the true beauty (inside and out) that is Lupita Nyong'o.

Three days before she would stand before the world and win the Academy Award for Best Actress (you do realize this was her first film, right?), the Yale graduate stood before a room full of accomplished women and accepted the Best Breakthrough Performance award at the seventh Annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.

There, in Beverly Hills, the Mexican born, Kenyan raised 31-year old actress took to the podium to address a letter she'd received from a fan -- an African American woman -- that struck a whole lot of chords.

Watch. A real star is born.
