It is important for young women to have influential role models that can inspire them to be more successful and achieve their hopes and dreams. When they see the influence that other women can have on the world, they may be more inclined to strive to influence others through their own passions.
Philanthropy and working towards a brighter future
While personal success can be rewarding, helping others have a brighter future is also a worthwhile and rewarding endeavour. Many successful women have chosen to form foundations and fund efforts to improve the lives of others. Sometimes these causes hit close to home, and sometimes they are chosen because of a unique need. Regardless, the work these women do in an effort to make the world a better place is admirable and something that all young women can use as inspiration to do their best. Not everyone has the resources and influence to make large changes. While every effort helps, those that have more power can certainly facilitate changes quickly. It is easy to rest on success. The true leaders are those that use their good fortune and hard work to help others.
