New York is known as the city that never sleeps. But, it’s also known as a fashion hub, especially when it comes to celebrities. The Tribeca Film Festival, located in the heart of New York City, began April 18 and will be ending on April 29. This event is known to collide fashion and style with film.

The film festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff, after the events of 9/11. On Tuesday, Naomi Wadler stole the show. This 11-year-old girl won the Disruptive Innovation Award, and gave quite a poignant speech for a young woman. She looked adorable in her off-the-shoulder ruffled pink top and high-waisted black jeans. Wadler believes in disrupting the status quo of how African American women are treated.

“Black women are forgotten, and their names aren’t remembered,” Wadler said. “They aren’t thought of as humans; they’re thought of as numbers and statistics.”

According to an article by Glow Up, she also participated in designer and philanthropist Tory Burch’s Embrace Ambition Summit, joining #1000BlackGirlBooks founder Marley Dias on a panel of young activists at the female-centric event. Not only is this young girl fashion forward, she is passion forward.
