Its not her first magazine shoot either as she appeared on the cover for The Business Of Fashion alongside Kim Kardashian along with an interview as part of The Age of Influence series.

Speaking to Vogue, Sinéad said: We need to be constantly asking what voices are not in the world, which perspectives are not being considered, and make sure that change occurs with as much intersectionality as possible.

Francesca Hayward is a Royal Ballet principal dancer. She told Vogue: Im very proud of the colour of my skin and that Im inspiring people from all backgrounds.

But I think it will be great for the next mixed-race or black female Principal dancer that she doesnt have to be asked about that.

Its no surprise that Meghan chose these women to be part of the 15 Forces for Change as they have overcome many hardships.

Ramla, for example, doesnt know exactly how old she is, only that she was born in the 90s, after war ravaged the country where her older brother was killed.



Adut left Kenya where she was raised and moved to Australia as a South Sudanese refugee.
