Marsai Martin celebrated her seventeenth birthday on Saturday with loved ones from near and far. Several celebrities took to social media to wish the young executive well on her special day.
“Happy Birthday beautiful girl,” Tina Lawson wrote to Marsai. “It has been a pleasure watching you grow,” the fashion designer exclaimed. “You are a force.” Dozens agreed with Tina Lawson and wished Marsai well on her birthday in the comments section of the Instagram post. “Happy Birthday beautiful,” Marilyn Booker wrote. “She has accomplished so much,” another of Tina Lawson’s fans noted.
Marsai Martin has indeed accomplished much at just 17-years-old. The youngster made history as the youngest executive in Hollywood to make a first-look deal with Universal in 2019. Martin has also established a media company for her films and other projects.
“When I was younger, I said I wanted to be a legend,” Marsai shared during a recent interview with Pop Sugar. “That means when I leave this world, I want to make sure that I came with a purpose, made a positive mark, and inspired young girls to do the same thing that I did,” the Black-ish star added.
“It’s an active process of understanding the power that I have,” Martin went on to tell the press. “I feel like a regular teenager that has ups and downs,” she added. “I think it’s all about confidence and being passionate about the things you put into the world,” Marsai explained to Pop Sugar. “Being myself, just Caila Marsai Martin, it’s weird to say that I have a lot of power. I just go with the flow.”
