Cameron Boyce inspired so many of us.
In case you missed it, Marcus Scribner recently teamed up with Frito-Lay and Feed the Children to launch an exciting initiative supplementing up to two million meals for struggling families. To celebrate this impactful project, we caught up with the 19-year-old “black-ish” actor, who told us that he hopes to inspire young people all over the country to ignite positive change in their communities.
Marcus also opened up about the power of Gen Z, and said that he couldn’t be prouder to be in such great company among other young change-makers. Along with his on-screen sister Yara Shahidi, he cited Cameron as someone who impacted his passion for activism:
“It definitely inspires me to want to get out there and do things. Recently, with the passing of Cameron Boyce, which is extremely sad for me, hurt me very deeply…he was out there making positive change, fighting for clean water for countries who didn’t have access. There are so many young people out there doing positive things. I definitely love being a part of that.”
Cameron Boyce’s legacy will live on through The Cameron Boyce Foundation, an organization that aims to provide young people with artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.
