A role model is a personality I can look up to, somebody I aim to be like, and who influences me by setting an example. Anuradha Koirala and Michelle Obama are my role models. They don’t affect my behaviour, rather they help expand my outlook of the world around and help me see opportunities for self improvement. Choosing a role model wisely is important as they help us to become who we want to be and encourage us to be the best person possible.

What someone wears or how they look doesn’t really matter to me. The portrayal of role models in media especially magazines are the right ones as they can positively influence the youth. Media influences play an essential part in shaping our behaviour and the responsibility lies with them to bring the right people into limelight.
