Why Brooke Davis Should Be Your Role Model

Though One Tree Hill is obviously fictional, it provided some very insightful life lessons. Because it is based on young kids as they grow up throughout various stages in their lives including high school, college and adult life, we are able to see how each character grows up and achieves their hopes and dreams. While each character does evolve into a more mature and better version of themselves, the character that shows the most improvement is Brooke Davis. Brooke starts out as a spoiled, easy, ditzy cheerleader, but throughout the series she becomes a strong, independent, intelligent and talented business woman and mother. She is proof that you can change the person you are if that's what you truly want. Here are a few reasons why Brooke Davis should be your role model.

As mentioned above, Brooke Davis had the biggest transformation out of all of the characters on the show. One day she realized that she didn’t like the person she was, so she decided to change. Granted it took more than a day or a week for this to happen, but she did it. And when people judged her based on who she was to the public eye or who she used to be, she didn't let it stop her. She took matters into her own hands and became a person she could be proud of.

Brooke Davis is tough. Throughout the show, she had SO many obstacles, heartbreak and challenges thrown at her. From her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend and her parents losing their money to not being able to have children and losing her own company. Though, she never gave up on anything. Despite all of these roadblocks, she persevered and still found happiness and success.

Brooke Davis is loyal. She is honestly the most loyal character on the show. Her best friend and boyfriend betrayed her not once, but TWICE. And she still forgave both of them and even gave her blessing for their marriage. Her mother was a nightmare to her for most of her childhood and adult life, though she still let her be a partner in her company. Heck, her mom was even the reason behind Brooke losing her company, though she still let her help with Bakerman. Though her closest friends and family constantly let her down, she never once lost hope.

Brooke Davis keeps it real. She always spoke her mind, whether to a teacher, boyfriend, her mother or a friend. She was never afraid to tell the truth. She let people know what she thought was right and wrong, and she never took anyones crap.

Brooke Davis knows her worth. Though she was not nearly as confident in the first few seasons as she was in the last, she knew how she wanted to and should be treated. She didn’t take other people’s excuses and lies. She knew that she deserved better than that and she fought for it every day.

Brooke Davis is a spokesperson for real women. She started with “Zero Is Not a Size” and continued to back it up with whole clothing line around that slogan. She knew that very few women actually wore a size zero and made it okay if you didn’t. She promoted healthy instead of skinny.

Brooke Davis knew how to fight for what she wanted. She wanted a clothing line, so she fought for it. She wanted to be able to defend herself, so she fought for it. She wanted a family, so she fought for it. She knew what her hopes and dreams were, and she never lost sight of it. She did what she had to do to get what she wanted.

Overall, Brooke Davis was one inspirational women. She is proof, though fictional, that you can do anything you set your mind to. She was a good friend, daughter, aunt, wife, mother and business woman. She juggled so many things and people in her life, but she never got tired of it. And when life got hard, she didn’t run. She became a “one in a million” type of person. Lucas said it best in "An Unkindness of Ravens", “Brooke Davis is gonna change the world someday. And she doesn’t even know it yet.”

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
