Zendaya is getting nostalgic on her 21st birthday!

In case you haven't heard, today is Queen Z's birthday!

It's not just any birthday, though, today she turns 21—wow! It feels like just yesterday we first fell in love with her on Disney Channel's Shake It Up—and things have only been up for the actress, singer, dancer and producer since then (what can't she do?!).

She's continued to dominate Disney with K.C. Undercover, starred in her first feature film this summer with Spider-Man: Homecoming and this Christmas we'll see her join the circus with Zac Efron in The Greatest Showman.

Not only that, she also regularly slays on the red carpet, runs her own clothing line, Daya by Zendaya, and endlessly advocates and speaks out for causes that are important to her. We could fangirl over this girl for days, honestly!

Remember when she graced the cover of our June/July 2014 issue? Love!

What has this brains-meets-beauty girl boss learned over the years? She exclusively told GL of her time on Disney, "I've been able to learn so much from so many people and just grow so much not only as a human being but a professional. It's been an amazing eight years!" So, here's to many more years of Zendaya rocking our world. Happy birthday, babe! Xoxo, GL.
