Oprah Winfrey is a phenomenal woman. She’s a great example of how to become mega-successful yet stay normal and humble and in touch with her audience. She has her own super-successful talk show, she’s a businesswoman, a philanthropist, an actress and a producer. She really can do it all. But instead of becoming just another rich celeb she uses her fame and success to showcase other people and help those in need. She constantly donates to charities and she’s known for inviting all sorts of people on her show and helping them out with what they need, be it financially or otherwise.

I feel like putting out a message for young girls to follow your dreams and just work at what you want to do and be yourself.” – says Willow.

She’s all about accepting your quirks and differences and whatever it is that makes you not like other people, and instead of trying to change those things – embracing it.
Queen B is such an inspiration. She has a voice that touches millions, she’s got the body of a dream, she’s a business woman and she’s a badass feminist lady. What else could you wish for? She’s just perfect. She’s a role model for women everywhere that you can achieve anything you set your mind to and you shouldn’t let anyone tell you otherwise. After all it was Beyonce who said “who runs the world? – Girls!”.
