Happy birthday, Zendaya! This fierce and confident young woman is turning 19 years-old today, September 1! We’re so amazed at the collected and classy woman that this actress has turned into over the last year, and can’t wait to see what she does next!
Zendaya is turning 19 years-old today, September 1! How exciting is that? The Disney starlet and passionate feminist has blossomed into a remarkable talented and outspoken young woman, and there are only many great things ahead for her. In both her career and social activism, she’s had such growth! We hope she has the best birthday ever!
We just love Zendaya here at HollywoodLife.com! Not only is she such a sweetheart, but K.C. Undercover is totally entertaining, too! Zendaya’s smash Disney Channel hit premiered in early 2015, and kids (and us) all over the country are completely obsessed with it. A math genius by day, and a secret agent by night, Zendaya is tough and savvy and kicks serious butt! Love it!
That wasn’t her only acting credit this year of course. Zendaya was one of the badass ladies to star in Taylor Swift’s epic “Bad Blood” music video. As Cut Throat, Zendaya fought her heart out alongside Taylor; we just wish this could have been stretched out into a feature-length spot to see more of what Zendaya and crew were really made of!

Aside from acting, Zendaya made waves with her outspoken and passionate beliefs regarding race and women’s rights. After Giuliana Rancic spoke about her dreadlocked hair at the 2015 Oscars in way that many thought racist, Zendaya responded eloquently, and called Giuliana on her misdeed. She forgave her as well — a classy move.
Let’s not forget another huge accomplishment — graduating high school! Even though she’s a total superstar with her own fashion campaign and Disney show, Zendaya walked across stage at her high school to receive her diploma with the other students — so proud!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Zendaya a happy birthday in the comments!
