The epic selfie that broke Twitter features the crème de la crème of Hollywood royalty including Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and Bradley Cooper – and there rubbing shoulders with them all is Peter Feliz Anyang’ Nyong’o, a first year student at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
