Storm Reid plays Meg Murray in the Disney film A Wrinkle in Time who goes on a quest to find her missing father. She’s super talented and starting acting at just 3 years old to now playing the leading role. I couldn’t be happier for her as Ava definitely picked the right girl for the part. Last week I had the chance to sit down and interview her. During the interview, all I could think about is how she is going to be a role model for the next generation of girls and these are the reasons why I think that.
She represents little girls that look like her
When we asked her how it feels being the next generation heroine, multicultural and an inspiration to little girls who look like you she said that it means everything to her. She represents little girls that look like her and is able to give them hope and opportunity to do anything no matter their big hair or their big nose, as people say, or their glasses or their skin tone.
She is unique and is herself
Storm wants young girls not to conform to what society wants you to be and what society thinks you should be or how you should look because you’re perfect just the way you are. With Meg who is doubtful about herself and doesn’t love herself at the time. In the film, there is a perfect version of Meg with her straight hair and crop top who is pretty but Meg chooses herself over her perfect self. She felt that she was able to kind of connect with that as a young teenage girl trying not to follow trends and trying to be unique and be me.
She is confident
We asked Storm if she learned anything about herself while playing Meg Murry in A Wrinkle In Time. She learned that she is enough and told us how her mom taught her that and it was instilled in her making her pretty confident. Playing the part of Meg Murray reassured her that she was enough and worthy of being loved, has faults and challenges, but that can’t stop her.
She wants to change the future
When Storm was asked if she could Tesseract anywhere in the world, where would she go, she said she would like to go back into the Civil Rights Movement. She would like to see how to deal with that and cope with that now and come back and see how to change the future because she feels segregation and inequality are still going on.
I can’t wait for the next generation of girls all over the world to see this movie. They will be inspired and ready to shine. See A WRINKLE IN TIME in theaters everywhere on March 9, 2018!

examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s
transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing
one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
