Who doesn’t love Rocky Blue on Disney’s Shake it Up? The character is played by 17-year-old Zendaya Coleman who’s also a budding singer.

- She and Rocky are a lot alike, Zendaya says. “We’re both shy, both total school girls (nothing less than an A plus will do!) and we’re both vegetarians.”

- Her dad is from Zimbabwe and her name means “to give thanks” in Shona. Her nicknames include Zen, Boo and Daya.

- This 1,78 m tall beauty started out as a model and one of her dreams is to start her own clothing range one day.

- She comes from a close-knit family which is what keeps her grounded. “My family keep my head on straight and keep me moving on the right path.”

- Replay, the first single off her as yet untitled debut album, will be released this month, and the album will be out later this year. “I don’t do anything I don’t love. If I don’t enjoy it then it isn’t worth it,” she says.

- Zendaya has shares in, a platform for managing photos and digital content on the web. “I think I’m a young business lady. I’ve always been conscientious of my future and what I want in life.” Go girl!
