From “Insecure” to confident! Issa Rae is now in formation among fellow Covergirls Janelle Monae, Queen Latifah, Zendaya, and more. Issa Rae is the first Covergirl to have created, and starred in a hit television series. Seemingly this is just the stars aligning for the budding actress. According to her Instagram announcement, this noteworthy moment was reminiscent of innocent influences during her high school years, and casual past time entertainment.
I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I’d be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come. Visit @COVERGIRL to learn more #COVERGIRLMADE
“Becoming a COVERGIRL means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways. This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others.”
Covergirl celebrated the collaboration with this Instagram post announcing Issa Rae as a part of the Covergirl Family.
