Why Lea Michele Is My Role Model

Why Lea Michele Is My Role Model

She's my lamp-post along the way.
“It's so important, so comforting, to have lampposts in this world who can light the way.”
- Lea Michele

Lea Michele is an actress, performer, and singer. She is best known for her role as “Rachel Berry’ on the hit series Glee. I discovered Lea Michele in 2014 when I really needed some guidance. From her, I got just that. She is a constant inspiration to me and many others around the world. She is filled with positive energy, happiness, and strength. If you’re looking for someone to be inspired by, Lea Michele should be that person and here’s why:

She's Confident in her Skin

“We live in a world of self-deprecation, and while it’s healthy to make fun of ourselves from time to time, it bothers me when I see women of all ages belittling their accomplishments because they don’t want to appear boastful or overconfident. You don’t see a lot of guys out there underplaying their strengths or making light of what they’re good at, so why should women? While I get that there’s a fine line between owning your accomplishments and reciting every line of your résumé, there is absolutely no shame in being proud of what you’ve managed to achieve! Own it!”
- Lea Michele

Not only is Lea confident about her professional career, but she is extremely confident in her body. She has posed for both swimwear and nude photo shoots. She has no issue flaunting her body. She inspires me to not be afraid showing off my body even when I do not feel the best in my skin.

She’s Extremely Healthy

Lea lives a very active lifestyle. She is constantly hiking, working out, and doing yoga. She attends many exercise classes to stay in shape. She has scheduled work-out routines and takes her health very seriously. She eats very healthy and deeply cares about what she puts into her body by varying from different diet-styles. I strive to be as healthy and fit as she is.

She’s Strong

Lea Michele has faced grief up-close and personal. In 2013, Lea lost her co-star and boyfriend, Cory Monteith to a drug overdose. The grief made her a stronger person by empowering her in many ways. She came out with a book and an album shortly after. She taught me to make the best out of anything that comes my way and to face it with bravery.

She Follows Her Dreams

Lea Michele started off in Les Miserables. She worked on and off Broadway which led her to acting on the hit series Glee. She has always worked hard to achieve her dreams by doing anything and everything to reach them. She’s successful due to her perseverance. She inspires me to chase my dreams.

She’s Full of Positivity

Lea is all about maintaining positivity throughout her life. She believes that laughter is a huge part of life. She surrounds herself with good people all while staying in good health. She loves to travel and try new things. Lea is kind to herself and others and makes positivity the main priority in her life.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
