One thing I always did during my life and that I continue doing is taking inspiration from other people, especially successful young women. Just to give you an example, at the age of 11 I spent my summer writing a book. Why? Because in that period one of my role models was a teenager writer, Alexandra Adornetto, and I wanted to be like her. Obviously, that book ended up to be a complete fail, but at that time I was very proud of myself.
I think that everyone should search for inspiration in other people’s life. Only by doing so, we’ll be able to grow, become conscious of our strengths and understand what we want from our lives. Moreover, we’ll make the difference only by looking at the positive impact that certain people have in the world.
These are the 7 successful young women I personally take inspiration from, and whose example will help you succeed:
1. Adelaine Morin
Adelaine Morin is a 20-year-old YouTuber, who turned her passion into a real job. She started her YouTube channel at the age of 13, and from that moment her channel has earned over 2.4 million subscribers and definitely made her some real money.
What’s even more impressive about her, though, is her positivity and energy. She constantly spreads messages of confidence and self-esteem. as well as the importance of supporting other girls. She definitely is an example to follow!
2. Chiara Ferragni
Back in 2009, the Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni launched her blog TheBlondeSalad.com and she hasn’t looked back since. At the age of 32 years old, she isn’t just a successful blogger, but she is also the creative director of a successful clothing line, and she has flown all around the world to collaborate with major brands.
Her success is so huge that she has been chosen by Harvard University as a case study on the business of blogging. Chiara is one of the most successful young women in the world, as she made over 35 millions of dollars in 2018. Despite the fact that her life might now look luxurious and kind of like a piece of cake, she actually started completely unknown and worked hard to get to this point.
3. Iyore Olaye
At the age of 23, Iyore Olaye has already been named in the 2018 Forbes’ 30 under 30. She is is a technology innovator who is transforming the beauty, cosmetic and technology industries as the lead development Engineer at Walker & Company Brands.
If that is not enough for you, you also have to know she is the only girl on her team and the youngest at her company.
4. Karlie Kloss
You probably already know a lot about her, but if you don’t keep on reading!
Karlie is only 25 but she is both a model and an entrepreneur. She is also an avid computer programmer. in April 2015, she partnered with some major organizations to offer a scholarship named Kode with Klossy for young girls interested in computer science and software engineering. Karlie also has a YouTube channel where she shares bits of her life.
She is definitely a Girlboss with a positive message for the world.
5. Malala Yousafzai
If you don’t know who Malala Yousafzai is, you’ve probably been living under a rock for the past 5 years.
She is a Pakistani activist who, while a teenager, spoke out publicly against the Taliban’s prohibition on the education of girls. She gained global attention when she survived an assassination attempt at age 15.
In 2014 Malala, together with Kailash Satyarthi, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace recognizing their efforts on behalf of children’s rights. Did I mention she is only 20?
6. Simone Biles
Having won a combined total of nineteen Olympic and World Championship medals, Simone is the most decorated American gymnast. With four Olympic gold medals, she set an American record for most gold medals in women’s gymnastics at a single Games.
Just so you know, at the age of only 21 years old, her accomplishments have led many of her peers as well as the media to refer to her as the greatest gymnast ever.
She is definitely an example you should look up to if you’re in the sports world!
7. Emma Watson
Last but surely not least, there’s Emma Watson.
You all know Emma is a great actress. But she did not stop there! While on set she has always cared about her studies and in 2014 she graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature.
In the same year, she was also appointed as a UN Women Goodwill ambassador and helped launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, which calls for men to advocate gender equality.
