SZA
"It starts with trusting yourself, even if people are telling you you’re too young to trust yourself..."

SZA has given an inspirational speech to students at her former high school.

The American artist graduated from Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey back in 2008, and returned to be inducted into the school's hall of fame.

Performing onstage for current students, SZA then gave an inspirational speech about the impact the school had on her, and how these students could also achieve great things.

She said: "It starts with trusting yourself, even if people are telling you you’re too young to trust yourself..."

SZA also saluted her favourite art teacher and said "daydreaming" is where you "find the details and the inner workings of yourself."
