Coleman Early Life

Zendaya Coleman’s path to stardom began on the stages of Oakland. Born in 1996 to Claire Stoermer and Kazembe Ajamu Coleman, Zendaya grew up the youngest of six siblings. Her mother’s Scottish and German roots and her father’s African-American heritage shaped her worldview. But it was Zendaya’s childhood immersion in the arts that lit the spark for her future career.  

At just 6 years old, Zendaya stepped into the spotlight for a Black History Month play. This first taste of applause set her on a course to perform again and again. Her mother, a teacher at Fruitvale Elementary School, supported her passions. Summers spent at the California Shakespeare Theater, where her mother worked, cemented Zendaya’s love of the stage. She helped seat audiences and sell tickets, enthralled by the theater world surrounding her.

Zendaya dove headfirst into developing her talents. She joined the hip-hop dance troupe Future Shock Oakland at 8 years old, adding dance to her growing repertoire. She also practiced her footwork with hula lessons from The Academy of Hawaiian Arts. Once Zendaya entered the Oakland School for the Arts, she flourished in productions like “Once on This Island” and “Caroline, or Change.” Her studies continued at the American Conservatory Theater and CalShakes Conservatory program, steeping Zendaya in Shakespeare from “Richard III” to “Twelfth Night.”  

When Zendaya’s family relocated to Los Angeles in middle school, the pieces fell into place for her ascent to stardom. But she will always remember her theatrical roots in Oakland, where she first discovered her lifelong passion.

Zendaya Career

Zendaya’s meteoric rise to stardom began in 2010 when she landed the lead role of Rocky Blue on Disney Channel’s hit series Shake It Up. The show was an instant success, premiering to over 6 million viewers. Though Shake It Up kept her busy for 3 seasons, Zendaya still found time for side projects like releasing singles, hosting Disney specials, and voicing animated characters. 

Her profile continued growing with starring roles in Disney Channel original movies like Frenemies and Zapped. By 2013 when Shake It Up ended, Zendaya was ready for more mature roles. She turned heads by finishing runner-up on Dancing with the Stars that year. 

Over the next few years, Zendaya alternated between leading Disney productions and guest-starring on other shows, while also releasing her self-titled debut album in 2013.  

But her big break came in 2017 with major parts in two blockbuster films – Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Greatest Showman. These high-profile roles cemented her status as a fast-rising star. She reprised her role in the even more successful 2019 sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Since then, Zendaya has leveraged her newfound fame into more ambitious projects, including an Emmy-winning lead role on HBO’s Euphoria and films like Dune. She also has an exciting upcoming slate, including producing and starring in a Ronnie Spector biopic. From Disney child star to A-list actress, Zendaya’s future looks brighter than ever.
