As a young women growing and living in today's society, we often try to mirror the famous celebrities, style icons, and important figures in the media. We look up to them as our role models and possibly even our guides through life. Whether it is because of their fashionable style, elegance, intellect, or kindness I can think of a few women off the top of my mind who embody these characteristics; these are role models of mine. Not only are they people I admire but other young women should see past style and beauty and see how much more these women have to offer and why I consider them to be extraordinary role models. These women are both icons from the past and present.
1. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton)
2. Audrey Hepburn
3. Amal (Alamuddin) Clooney
4. Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis
5. Emma Watson
6. Grace Kelly, Princess Consort of Monaco
These women should be considered role models for young girls and women everywhere today. Yes, they are beautiful and yes, fashionable, but true beauty is only skin deep. These women are much more than what is on the outside. The way you portray yourself to others by your actions, words, and mannerisms should be a positive reflection of who you truly are to everyone around you. Taking your education seriously, working hard to achieve your goals/dreams, and doing your part for communities or issues that are paramount to you will be rewarding in the long run. Create your own legacies. Who are some of your role models?
