On Friday, @zendaya was given the @glsenofficial Gamechanger Award, presented by none other than @connorfranta. They’re here with Marisa, a member of GLSEN’s National Student Council.
On presenting the award, Connor said: “It’s nights like this one that remind me how fortunate the world is to have organizations like GLSEN that create safe spaces for countless young people — like Marisa and the others here tonight — to simply and complexly be their beautifully unique selves each and every day in schools across the country.” This year the award goes to Zendaya for her incredible dedication to using her voice for positive change. These are the people creating change for the people who need it most, and we are eternally grateful for their never-ending fight for what’s right.

This is Jenny Lorenzo, a Cuban-American cosplaying creator from Miami whose “Abuela” impersonation and other crazy characters will have you rolling on the floor laughing in both Español and Inglés. Jenny is also an award winning producer, actor and internet personality with recurring roles on multiple shows including “We Are Mitu” and BuzzFeed’s “Pero Like.” Add to that a heavy dose of theater and film experience and you have one well-rounded creator!
