You probably know a little bit about Demi Lovato, a Disney star with a few catchy songs, but you probably don’t know how truly amazing she is. Here are a few reasons why she is my role model and should probably be your's too.
1. She’s Relatable
Although she is a celebrity, her fame has not stopped her from having her fair share of normal teenage experiences. Even with her fame she has managed to keep a tight grip on her goofy, down-to-earth personality.
2. She’s an advocate for many social issues
She uses her fame to speak up about social issues that other celebrities may be hesitant to talk about such as bullying, LGBTQ+ rights, feminism, mental illness and self-harm.
3. Her music is diverse and inspiring (not to mention her voice is amazing)
She has pop, upbeat songs but she also has songs about getting over heartbreak, loving yourself, overcoming hardships, losing loved ones and even about her abusive, alcoholic father.
4. She promotes self-love and confidence to her fans
She’s constantly telling her fans that they can make it through in whatever issues they face and how much she loves them.
5. She knows she isn’t perfect and won’t let her past define her future
Between bullying, mental illness, abuse, eating disorders and self harm, she’s dealt with a lot of things in her life. Despite her struggles, she has not been held back from moving forward and achieving her goals.
