“Black Panther” star Letitia Wright won the “Rising Star” award Sunday night at the BAFTA
In her speech she thanked God:
“I identify myself as a child of God, and I can’t get up here without thanking God.”
She revealed her battle with depression and said her deep faith got her through it.
“I want to encourage you that God made you and you’re important. There might be some of you that’s going through depression, that’s going through a bad time, and you’re putting on a smile and nobody can see that. But you know it and God knows it, and I just want to encourage you and I just want to say that God loves you and just let your light shine.”
