Personality Trait: Abstract
Why It's So Fitting: If it weren't for Issa, we wouldn't have the gem that is "Awkward Black Girl."

Personality Trait: Focused
Why It's So Fitting: Close your eyes for a moment and try to imagine an undirected Prince. There's a reason Prince has been at the top of his game for decades, and we're willing to bet that he would have lost his luster a long time ago if he weren't unwaveringly focused.

Personality Trait: Open-Minded
Why It's So Fitting: We knew there was something unique about Quvenzhané ever since we saw her in Beasts of the Southern Wild. We must have been picking up on her Louisiana roots.

That explains why 6-year-old Quvenzhané nailed that role in the indie film!

Why It's So Fitting: Behind every great man is a great state. Should it come as a surprise that the president of the United States is a hardworking extrovert? Maybe not, but we should be thanking Hawaii for turning Barack Obama into President Obama.

Why It's So Fitting: Tracee has been the voice for the underrepresented. She's reppin' us curvy girls and natural sistas on Black-ish, and she's trying her hardest to get the rest of Hollywood to open their minds and embrace Black women in all of our glory once and for all.
