On living in Nairobi:
"I wasn’t allowed to go to school. We were basically locked up in the house. The curtains were shut all the time, and we were just burning papers. I was definitely exposed to some extreme situations. Tragedy is something that I have known and that I have tried to accept as part of life. But I don’t dwell on it. . . . OK! I need to powder my nose!”

On her acting skills:
“My training at Yale is the core of the actor that I am. Before that I was just going on instinct . . . having my imagination take over. But Yale taught me that it’s about giving yourself permission to pretend.”

On filming 'Queen of Katwe' in Uganda & people looking like her:
“One amazing thing about filming in Uganda was that on the first day of rehearsal we were all barefoot. I looked down and all the feet were my complexion. That had not happened to me before. I was reminded that I’m actually not that special. There are lots of people in the world who look like me.”

On America & Kenya:
“I definitely feel there’s a lot of America in me. The idea that you can be self-made is very vibrant in America. You can do anything that you want to do. That spirit pushes you on. But it took me leaving Kenya to really appreciate the glory of the place. I will always be a child of Kenya.”
