Not only do we look up to her, we relate to her too!

6 Reasons Why Beyonce Is A Relatable Role Model

Beyonce is a celebrity, but she's much more than that. She's fierce, she's confident, and she's bold: she's a role model. Here's why Beyonce understands every college girl on a personal level.

She Understands How Important Confidence Is

Beyonce exudes confidence. She knows she's beautiful, she knows she's *flawless*, and she doesn't need to prove herself to anyone. She inspires girls to speak their minds and walk with confidence.

She Knows it's Difficult to be Held to a High Standard

Queen Bey might be a queen, but she's still human. Most girls know what it's like to be held to a ridiculously high standard. It's hard feeling like you have to be perfect, beautiful, smart, and talented. She understands this pressure too, and asks that people don't judge her for her decisions. We've all been there.

She Stands Up for What She Believes In

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F11%2F08%2F635826066494314536-118727226_bey%25203.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=505&h=cec7757c73c4acb46b4939ec82aecb0c8fd9c04ee078474f5fe9332d06a6959e&size=980x&c=3689052710 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F11%252F08%252F635826066494314536-118727226_bey%2525203.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D505%26h%3Dcec7757c73c4acb46b4939ec82aecb0c8fd9c04ee078474f5fe9332d06a6959e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3689052710%22%7D" expand=1]

Beyonce is always standing up for the causes she believes in. She is passionate about her beliefs and people look up to her because of that. One example is her performance of "I Was Here" at the United Nations for World Humanitarian Day. She shows women everywhere that passions, like music, can change the world.

She Knows that Pretty Hurts...

Hours spent on the treadmill, endless calorie counting, a few more skipped meals to fit into that dress. Beyonce knows that pretty hurts, and doesn't cover up what goes on in the industries she's worked in to perpetuate the unrealistic stereotypes placed on women.

And She's Striving to Realize that Happiness Matters Most, Just LIke You

Beyonce knows the importance of positivity. She understands every girl's struggle to be beautiful and successful, but helps us realize that in the end, our happiness and mental health come first.

She is a Proud Feminist

Not only is Beyonce a self-proclaimed feminist, but she knows what it means too! She teaches girls to love and embrace their femininity while also going after the things they are passionate about.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
