The California native told People:

"I feel like it's really important for young people dealing with bullying to see a symbol of confidence. Whether that be from me on social media or from someone in their family, I feel like that is really important to have someone that they can look to and know that confidence is possible. That's why I do it."

YGG!

If she's also looking to inspire old people like us — done and done!

As for her partnership with TOMS One Day Without Shoes focused on raising awareness about the plight of disadvantaged individuals around the world, Zendaya shared:

"I like to use my platform for bigger things than just myself and things that I believe in and I feel very strongly about. This is one of those things. Just using my platform and the things that I love to help other people and bring more awareness to things that I feel like need it."

LOVES seeing young Hollywood stepping up in such selfless ways!
