When accepting her award, gave a speech to inspire people to be proud of their uniqueness and her message of empowerment will surely be stuck in the kids’ minds.

“Thank you so much to all the kids who voted. I want to say that when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different and I felt out of place and too loud, too full of fire and never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize. Different is good. So, don’t fit in, don’t sit still, don’t ever try to be less than what you are and when someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud,” she said. “And, and as your villain, I would also say, cause a little trouble. It’s good for you.”

The speech came after the 39-year old actress revealed on March 23 that she’d had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed earlier this month after doctors detected a possible sign of early cancer.
