11-year-old Kaitlyn Williams is the real-life Chun-Li.

The Atlanta native is a purple belt at Next Level Martial Arts and she’s snatching up all type of awards and certificates for her skills. We caught up with the YBF Kid ia her mom, and we're told she loves everything about the art of karate.  She said karate gives her the ability to focus and a place where she can her true self. And the proof is in the smiles (and trophies).

Not only is she kicking butt in the sport, she's killing it in the classroom as well.

The Honor Roll student (with straight As) started an Instagram page to introduce karate to other young ladies who look like her. Kaitlyn believes the sport helps build confidence, is a fun way to exercise and, most importantly, it’s fun!

Beyonce’s Coachella performance had a huge impact on the younger generation and they’re showing out on the Internet while paying homage to the Queen.

In case you missed it, Virginia State University student Brianna Bundick-Kelly (aka BRIyonce) went viral when she uploaded a video of herself nailing some of Beyonce’s signature dance moves during her Coachella performance. Chick perfected every move Bey and her backup dancers did on the O.T. Genasis remixed track “Everybody Mad.” And she literally learned it in 40 minutes.

BRIyonce was invited to the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to show off her dance moves and explained how the video came about. “It took me like 40 minutes to get all the moves down, but then like an hour to perfect it,” she said, “cause that’s what Beyonce would do.”


The talk show host gifted BRIyonce with a custom Beychella bomber jacket and two tickets to an upcoming On The Run II Tour. Nice! Check out BRIyonce **** it up on “ELLEN” below:

BRIyonce has been all over television since her video went viral. Peep her appearances below:




She also had EVERYONE LIT at her college, VSU, when she hit the stage with the schools dance team:



And to prove she's REALLY about that dance life, BRIyonce redid some Janet Jackson chreography:
