Marsai’s Words

The star was on the most recent episode of the show “ET Unfiltered”. In the episode, the star talks about how she is grateful for how far she has come.

“I’m blessed to actually have the platform that I have,” the star says. “Being a Black girl, even in a white, male-dominated industry, you have to use your voice. You have to speak your mind for your audience.”

During the episode, Marsai even shows some of her beloved makeup looks. She also talks about her life while growing up.

“Back when I was in Texas, I didn’t see young Black girls who looked like me. I just thought they weren’t allowed to be on screen, and I don’t want anyone to feel that way,” Marsai mentions.

She also highly recommends to not stay silent and to put what you are good at to use for a change. At just 15 years old, Marsai Martin creates her plans and innovative ideas. She is a strong influence on other young people of color.

“I feel like I’m still the same me and that’s what I love about myself,” Marsai Mentions. “Going into Black-ish and national commercials, and even pitching Little at a young age, I was, like, nine or 10, and honestly I feel like at that age, I just didn’t care about how people would look at me.”

“I had a vision and I just went towards it,” she says. “I just saw it as a fun game. Even pitching Little, I was like, ‘I’m just talking to my homies… the heads of Universal.’ I really loved how back then, my mind was just carefree, fearless, do whatever without hesitation, and I feel like that’s how people should be these days. I feel like everyone is so on their toes, and don’t want to use their platform because there’s ‘cancel culture.’ I want to do things because they make me happy, or make me feel good, and came from my headspace. I feel like everyone should think that way,.”
