What impact has Black Panther made in your life?
I remember seeing Black Panther for the first time on opening night, in a sold-out crowd.
It was such a different experience than seeing any other movie.
It almost felt like I was looking into a mirror, like I was finally being seen for the first time.
I could only imagine how much the movie impacted little black boys and girls, who are seeing themselves portrayed as superheroes on the big screen.
I hope that representation continues to diversify in the film industry.
Representation motivates people worldwide to reach for the stars and chase their dreams.
