Uzo Aduba and Mo Ne Davis HONORED by Bazaar

Women Who Dare by Harper’s Bazaar is honoring, “Orange is the New Black,” star Uzo Aduba and 13-year-old baseball HITTA, Mo’Ne Davis.
 Known to us OITNB FANATICS as “Crazy Eyes” Uzo is adding this prestigious nod from Haper’s Bazaar to her many other accolades, including an Emmy Award.
Uzo recently SPILLED that the DAY
she was cast as the Bantu knotted mentally DISTURBED inmate on the NETFLIX hit series was the SAME DAMN DAY she decided to QUIT acting. Like many STARVING ARTISTS, Uz had been auditioning for parts but COMING UP SHORT. She said,
“My family is from Nigeria, and when I was a kid, my parents wanted me to be a lawyer,” she says. “I thought, ‘You aren’t meant to be an actor. This isn’t for you.'”
“Suzanne was described to me as innocent like a child, except children aren’t scary. Whatever she does comes from a place of curiosity.” The eyes “I focused on last.” She laughs. “Like when she winks, she thinks she’s doing it with one eye, but it’s with both. She just can’t quite nail it.”
With such an unique name, Uzo had to FIGHT to use it as her “stage name” in Hollywood. She prefers to act under her legal name in order to stay true to herself, a principle she uses to define “daring.”
“…taking all risks and chances. It took me a long time to arrive at that—you know, from my gap teeth to my name. I’m realizing, You don’t need to change anything about yourself. This is who you are, and it’s okay. That’s daring.”
Joining her in the 2014 Women Who Dare circle is the 13-year-old baseball prodigy with a 70-MPH fastball.
Mo’Ne Davis was featured on Sport’s Illustrated after becoming the first female in history to pitch a shut out game at the Little League World Series. LIL MUVA Mo’ is the 4th American girl to MAKE IT to the World Series.
Though this lil SISTA is a baseball pitcher she SPILLED to Harper’s Bazaar, “Basketball is my favorite sport, actually.”
She gave the FULL DROP as to what she wants to do in the future.
“I want to play basketball for UConn.”
Girl, YOU CAN!
The 13-year-old GIRL dominating in a “boys game,” SHOWS the guys her STUFF every time she steps up to the pitcher’s mound.
“Most want to hit against me, just to say they got a hit,” she says shyly.
How often does that happen?
“Not very often.”
We are SO proud of these DARING DIVAS.

listen to your MUVA.
MUVA knows best.
