Women Who Inspire Me

I look up to so many women on a daily basis for inspiration and motivation to become a better version of myself - as a mom, wife, entrepreneur, and an ambitious woman with big dreams and visions.


The more I learn about the world and the people in it, the more I am blown away by the so many hardworking and inspiring women who are constantly chasing the game. Not only are they international powerhouses, but they are all humble, kind, grounded, and not afraid to be themselves and stand up for what is right.


This world is full of fierce women whose charisma, passion, work, goals and the impact that they have in their community encourage us to become empowered and elevated every day - from promising world leaders to trailblazing athletes.



Meghan Markle:

I have loved her since she was Rachel on suits, and have loved everything she was and stood for long before she had a larger platform to contribute to. Since a very young age, she had been dropping gems left and right to stand up for women everywhere. From a civil rights activist to prime-time actress, to being a duchess, there is no role that she can’t play.

She is constantly listening to her heart and taking leaps of faith to live the life that is best for her and her family, while still continuing to do all the work she believes in. She is a source of light and guidance to everyone everywhere, and she teaches us that no matter how hard life hits us, be kind, be brave, be empathetic, and be fair. For that, she is my role model.


Jacinda Ardern:

I don’t even know where to begin here. I see her as a mom with a super cool day job (that she aces at every single day). She is an amazing and audacious woman who I am constantly in awe of. I love the way she keeps her cool in times of crisis and manages her country with so much grace, love, respect and compassion - something I have been so lucky to witness and be inspired by. and I'm glad that the world has someone as brilliant as her to look up to as a leader (even for other leaders).


Serena Williams:

Serena needs no introduction, she is an absolute star in every way. As a mom, an elite athlete, a leader and an activist, her elegance, courage and drive to keep growing serves as a constant inspiration to me. She truly embodies both strength and humility and is always unapologetically herself. I admire her exceptional achievements and awards, it encourages me to never stop chasing my visions and dreams. But her influence extends far beyond the baseline and I love the way she is always encouraging confidence and body positivity - something a lot of women and young girls need today.



Jameela Jamil:

I think it’s safe to say that we all fell in love with her as Tahani on The Good Place. But she is beyond just an incredible actress, she is well-known for being an equality and mental health advocate, and for her 'I Weigh' body neutrality campaign. I am fueled by how committed she is to always be true to herself, to be so down to earth, and so fierce at the same time.

Her passion towards making a change through her I Weigh campaign has impacted so many women around the world, and I love that she is very open about her personal experience and letting other women know that they are not alone. I also love her courage in calling out people and behaviour that is damaging or detrimental to women and girls everywhere - encouraging them to embrace their unique beauty and know their value.


Michelle Obama:

Just saying and hearing her name takes my breath away. Her charisma, her voice, grace and intelligence are all beyond inspiring to me. Before she became the first lady and immediately become known to the whole world, I never knew a woman could be so fierce, so smart, so grounded and so breathtaking as she is.

She was the best first lady there ever was and has influenced so many people in a way no other first lady has.

From Princeton & Harvard graduate to a lawyer, to loving mother and wife, I’m not sure if there’s anything that she cannot do. She worked as an advocate for poverty awareness, education, nutrition, physical activity, and healthy eating.

I have the utmost respect for how she shows up as a role model, and paves the way for all women and the younger generation to grow. I am blown away by all that she is and the kind of example she sets for everyone. I honestly cannot name someone else more brilliant than she is.


Malala Yousafzai:

I have to give it to her, at such a young age she became a human rights advocate and a champion for girls education in her country. She became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and at 20 she is already impacting the world more than most people can at that age. She sets a wonderful example of peace and empowerment for all women and I just wish I could have half the courage she has.

Emma Watson:

One of the many things I love about her is her dedication to bring awareness towards gender equality. I am so inspired by the hard work she puts in promoting education for young girls and removing the sexualisation of young women in the media - as a woman and a mom, I am so proud that we have someone like her to fight for a cause as important as this. She’s a great example of a positive role model for the younger generation in an industry that is shrouded by double standards and conformism.


I hope that by sharing why each of these women inspires me every day, they will inspire you too!


Who are your role models? I would love to know.
