I think it’s important to state that in order to be a good role model, you do not need to be perfect or famous. We don’t need “perfect” models…we need real people who can overcome.

I personally admire men and women who are educated and uses their knowledge to help make the world a better place.

I wanted to highlight Amal Clooney as an example of a good role model. Her passion for justice is evident throughout her career. Her list of achievements professionally & personally is what makes her a great role model but by no means is she a perfect person. There are many of her in the world and its a real shame her type only gets highlighted after she marries someone famous.

I also want to highlight Tiera Guinn who started doing rocket science at NASA before she even finished her schooling. She is a young woman who admits that the road isn’t easy, but urges people to move forward and reach for their dreams. She is very inspirational.

“You have to look forward to your dream and you can’t let anybody get in the way of it.” – Tiera Guinn
