10 Years ago a woman dared to follow her dream. She set out to create a positive space for girls to develop into powerful women and for trailblazing women to be recognized for their incredible contributions to this world. Role Model Magazine was born as her response to the lack of diverse representation and positive role models for girls.

Women who were told no, girls who beat the odds, and countless stories of perseverance, resilience and hope.These women reflect the best in us, not the best of us. Their stories’ leave clues. Our hope is that the wisdom within these pages will water the seeds of greatness inside of you and that you will be inspired to step into your own power, make bold moves, and unleash the unstoppable girl that lives inside of you!

These women reflect the best in us, not the best of us. Their stories’ leave clues. Our hope is that the wisdom within these pages will water the seeds of greatness inside of you and that you will be inspired to step into your own power, make bold moves, and unleash the unstoppable girl that lives inside of you!

Empowering girls everywhere  to stand boldly in their truth and  fearlessly pursue their dreams with Strength, Grit, Courage and Confidence is something that I am very passionate about. I remember  my  own personal journey , as a young 19 yr old, taking the huge step to move to the United States to further purse my dreams and further my education. As I embarked  on this new adventure, all I possessed was  a backpack filled with hopes and  dreams. Though, I was filled with a mix of  emotions; Excitement, fear, anxiety, doubt and confusion;  there was something magical about leaving my comfort zone to start a fresh new chapter in  my story

 

I have to admit that the  journey hasn’t always been easy, however I believe that it is because of having a strong  foundation  in  knowing “Who I AM AND WHAT I AM CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING”  instilled in me at a very young age by my parents, teachers, mentors ,  factored with surrounding myself with positive role models; reading stories of amazing women and girls modeling positives values; gave me the strength, grit and confidence  to make the conscious decision to stand boldly in my truth, fearlessly pursue my  dreams and never give up.  

 

The sad reality is that young women  and girls around the world still face many challenges related to lack of positive role models,  gender bias and often have to reconcile their own dreams with expectations of what the world says they “Should be” or “Can Be”. And that is why I strongly believe that now more than ever – it is important that we proudly articulate and share our authentic stories in order to help inspire the next generation of Fearless girl world changers .

 

 I am thrilled to invite you to join us  on this  journey  to  #MEETUNSTOPPABLEGIRL

The women and girls featured in the 1st annual  Role Model Magazine Unstoppable 100 list hail from various countries and are cross generational. Among them are  future Leaders , CEOs , Artists, Politicians,  and entertainers . Though  they  differ in age, nationality and job descriptions, social economic one thing that they all have in common is that the care very deeply about wellbeing and empowerment of every girls and  use their platforms to inspire; empower and address the unique challenges girls face around the world .

Enjoy the Journey
