The lead in hit Netflix show Stranger Things and a fledgling fashion phenomenon, this young but formidable talent is well on her way to becoming a Hollywood powerhouse — and she’s got words for anyone who would underestimate her. We learn what they are in Stranger Things Have Happened (page 34). Trigger warning: this article might make you feel relatively unaccomplished. Or make…
