    Earlier today, Disney+ announced Keke's role in their upcoming revival, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. She'll voice new character Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, a 14-year-old activist, on the original series.

    Keke has experience advocating for herself and others, which means she already has something in common with Maya, along with a great sense of style.

    The 26-year-old actor reacted to the exciting news on Twitter, stating, "Dreams come true!" She also shared the character with her fans on Instagram.
