The term “role model” seems to have a million different definitions and faces.
I read a lot of celebrity gossip. It is a true guilty pleasure of mine. Always has been. I probably read so much that I can pretty much tell you who the credible sources are and who are not.
I see a lot of comments from readers under these celeb news sites saying how this person’s a role model and this person isn’t.
Typically, those considered NOT role models are Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus to name a couple.
To me, it’s hard to determine what a good role model is because so many people have different ideas of what being a role model entails. Kim Kardashian flaunts her body, takes nude selfies, and pretty much has become famous for a leaked sex tape and what she shows off to the world. Miley Cyrus is a vulgar party girl. Some people may consider these people role models for being so free and uninhibited. Some may say they are not because of their image.
A role model to me is someone that fits the prototype of what you may perceive as a positive influence.
These days, young women and men definitely need someone to look to. Maybe not necessarily a celebrity, but someone.
So, I wonder. What is YOUR definition of a role model?
