In the early 1990s, Gabrielle Union was paying her way through college and studying for the LSATs when an internship at a Los Angeles modeling agency led to the opportunity to make $120 a day to be the “Black girl” in teen magazines. She said yes—after all, it beat her $7-an-hour gig at a local bookstore. And that decision changed her life forever. Union went on to star in sitcoms like Moesha as well as three of the highest-grossing teen movies of all time, including 2000’s Bring It On.
