If you caught this year’s blockbuster Black Panther then you would have seen Danai Gurira slay as the fearless warrior Okoye and probably taken a second or two to appreciate just how fit the actress is.
Now, she’s putting her strength to work for Reebok, having just been named as the sportswear giant’s newest ambassador. Taking up the role, Gurira joins the likes of Gigi Hadid and Gal Gadot who are also part of the company’s line-up.
Todd Krinsky, the GM of Reebok Performance, said of the appointment in a statement, “Dania brings with her a unique intensity that’s already inspired countless women to discover their own strength. We’re thrilled to have her join our family and help lead this inspiring coalition.” Gurira added, “We all view strength differently: through physicality, through mental fortitude, through honesty and perhaps most importantly through community. My goal is to work with Reebok to galvanise women in all communities to find strength within themselves so that we may continue to lead this cultural revolution. Each of us should be a hero to each other.”
Spoken like a true warrior.
