There are many successful, older women for teens to look up to, but what about young women who will inspire you? For me, it’s easier and more effective to look up to young women closer to my age, because I’m reminded that I’m never too young to make a difference! The following young women who will inspire you started making a difference in the world during their teens, and are sure to motivate you to accomplish something great!
1. Malala Yousafzai
Can I just take a moment to say how much I love Malala? I get chills anytime she is interviewed on the news, or I read a touching story about her life. Malala is an empowering young women, age 16, who is an activist for educational rights. She was shot in the head, but survived. She is the definition of a fighter, and if she is not one of the young women who will inspire you to be a better teenager, I don’t know who is!
