Happy birthday, Zendaya! The former Disney star turns 20 years old today and we can bet she’ll be sharing snippets of her festivities on her popular Instagram feed.

The young performer is known for her abilities to act, sing, dance, and even design shoes, but she’s recently been making a name for herself as a defender against Internet bullies. Whether it’s championing makeup-free selfies or standing up for her parents, Zendaya isn’t afraid to speak her mind in an admirable manner that often belies her years.

The Disney star’s strength is just being one among her fans, empowering them when they’re down and doling out helpful beauty advice when they need it (have you checked out her amazing brows?). We’re not surprised, then, that her dedicated fans celebrated when she got her first major role in a motion picture as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane in the upcoming film Spider-Man: Homecoming.

“I’m very excited about what the future holds for me in the big screen world,” she told Weddings-travel. “It’s something that I’ve always been passionate about and it’s slowly coming to and it’s really happening.”
