Lupita Nyong'o. To be honest, if you haven't seen this name at least once as of late, you must be hiding under a rock! This Mexican-born, Kenyan native epitomizes the true meaning of African beauty.  From her beautiful dark chocolate skin to her perfectly sculptured arms, Lupita has been taking the entertainment industry by storm.

Jessica Williams is a vibrant young comedian and actress from Los Angeles, who is a correspondent on The Daily Show. In 2011, she was hired as the youngest correspondent in the history of the show at only 22 years old (talk about inspiring!). She is also the show's first black female correspondent. She is incredibly witty, entertaining and brings a new "voice" or perspective to the show. Here's a clip of her reporting on the recent Jordan Davis murder trial and pointing out the devastating yet ironic nature of the unjust justice system (from The Daily Show):
