Over the years we have seen a whole host of stars coming through and making a name for themselves thanks to their Disney television series. Some of these stars have then gone on to become huge stars on a global scale, proving that there is more to what they have to offer than just being a Disney star. Among these stars include the likes of Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
However, there is a new young and talented Disney star on the rise in the form of the 17-year-old beauty Zendaya, who has been making a name for herself for all the right reasons of late. With that said though, Zendaya has insisted that she does not like being compared to the Disney stars that have come before her and states that she intends to do her own thing in her own way.
Zendaya explained, "Things that they’re doing are not what I’m gonna do because I’m not them. We’re completely different people. You can’t really [say] ‘Oh because they did it, now [this one will].’ That doesn’t make any sense. I don’t want to ever bring anyone else down for any decisions they made when they grew up, because everyone’s growing process is different, everyone learns differently."
She added, "We’re all human beings. We’re all growing up. We’re all different. We’re all going to have different lives. I think I learned a lot of positive things. I learned how you deal with problems, and how to handle yourself. I admire some of them because they have had so much success at a young age, and they continue to handle themselves and persevere through any kind of problem that they have, which I think is most important."
Zendaya is preparing to take on the biggest role of her career, as she takes on the role of Aaliyah in a movie about the late stars life.
