Zendaya Returns to Oakland Schools

Earlier this week, K.C. Undercover’s and The Greatest Showman’s Zendaya returned to her home in the bay area to visit Fruitvale Elementary School in Oakland.

She posted consistently on her Instagram story throughout the day of the young students performing shows and participating in group activities.

I always say if I wasn’t in entertainment I’d be a teacher, like my mom.

She visited the campus with a project from Verizon to encourage interests in STEM. The Oakland Unified School District posted a video shoutout from Zendaya to the young students:

It is incredibly inspiring to see stars like Zendaya give back to the community. The students were very thankful for her time.
