Mama Vanessa Bryant and her kids Natalia Bryant, Bianka Bryant, and Capri Bryant have carried on their heritage in so many wonderful ways, and Natalia explained how she respects her father every day in a rare, recent interview with Elle.
In an exclusive conversation with Elle, she discussed her continuous “mamba mentality.” Her father’s fortitude and his well-known moniker influenced her thinking. “Mamba mentality is about constantly trying to be the best version of yourself,” she said.
“It’s putting your best foot forward at all times regardless of all the noise. I want to make sure that mentality stays intact, because it can be so easy to give up on yourself when things get tough. You have to remind yourself that with positivity and resilience you can do anything.”
In the same interview, she talked about how her younger sisters and her mom “are amazing.” She said, “My family is my rock. My mom and my sisters are amazing, and I can always lean on them for support. I also have amazing friends and mentors that I love who I know I can count on.”
