Samira is a bright light who radiates passion and purpose. She shines on screen in our favorite shows, and off screen as a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community. Her real power is her smile, and “it’s not just a smile. It’s everything that emanates from that & everything in my life that has brought me to be able to smile in that way.”
As an actress and an activist, Samira wakes up with a clear purpose every day: “What makes me feel happy in my own skin has a lot to do with passion and purpose. I feel like I’ve figured that out for myself possibly at an early age, and it’s the driving force of everything that I do.”
“There’s a certain feeling when you stand in the mirror when you put on something ‘awesome’ that makes you stand in a different way, makes your face light up in a different way.” Shop Samira’s Aerie faves here.
“I’m just trying to spread love!”
