Her movie, “Little” revolves around a high-strung tech entrepreneur who undergoes a transformation into a child. The film not only marked Martin’s executive producer debut but also featured her alongside fellow “Black-ish” star Regina Hall and “Awkward”‘s Issa Rae.
Martin revealed to the Associated Press in 2019 that she pitched the idea for “Little” to Universal when she was just 10 years old.
Reflecting on the experience, she expressed her joy in bringing her creative ideas to life, stating, “It was so fun and so exciting because I always want to create things that make me happy. It’s insane when it actually comes to fruition.”
The movie garnered significant success, grossing nearly $49 million worldwide in its first year. Martin’s impact extends beyond the box office, as she aspires to inspire young Black girls to pursue their dreams.
“I hope that all the young Black girls out there really see how a change can really happen, just by being yourself, just by any imagination you have that can run wild. You only live once so go for it,” Martin said.
Her portrayal of the family’s youngest daughter has earned her accolades at prestigious events such as the BET Awards, NAACP Image Awards, and Young Artist Awards. In recognition of her remarkable contributions, Martin secured a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List in Hollywood and Entertainment last year.
Now 19, she was recently featured in It Figures where she recounted her experience after she was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst.
