If there’s anything to make you fall more in love with Lupita Nyong’o, it’ll be this. 

When the 12 Years a Slave star stopped by Sesame Street, she did a great segment with Elmo, leaving viewers with an important message: Love the skin you’re in. “That’s the thing I love most about skin, Elmo,” said Nyong’o, after Elmo noticed her skin is a “beautiful, brown color.” “Skin comes in lots of beautiful shades and colors.” 

Whether it’s white or brown—or even red—everyone should love the skin they’re in.
