Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913, in Alabama. She grew up on a farm and was the daughter of a teacher and a carpenter. She attended an all-girls school and the Alabama State Teachers College in Montgomery. She was married to Raymond Parks who was a local member of the NAACP which stands for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She served as secretary of the NAACP Montgomery and later became the Youth Council adviser. She became active in voting drives and also refused the right to vote more than once.
Rosa Parks is unique because she was a person who campaigns to bring about political and social change. Rosa Parks has been called “the first lady of the civil rights” and “the mother of the civil rights movement” due to her bravery of refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. Her act of resisting her seat leads to a boycott of the Montgomery bus system. After the bus boycott, she became an international icon to racial segregation.
I chose Rosa Parks as one of the women that inspire me because she stood up against racism and in those days things were much harder for women. Rosa Parks also hated the ways of her life and was tired of giving in so she took a stand. She always dreamed of having freedom in her life. She has taught me to stand up for my rights and that everyone should be treated equally.
Oprah Winfrey was born in Mississippi on January 29,1954. Her parents were not married and broke up soon after she was born. Oprah Winfrey’s grandmother was strict and gave her plenty of discipline as she grew up on an isolated farm. Her grandmother taught her many things such as reading by the age of two. With Winfrey being intelligent and able to read by the age of two, she was able to skip first and second grade.
Oprah Winfrey is one of America’s best-loved influencers. She had a big effect on the nation’s culture, beginning with her role as a host of televisions. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah being herself towards her audience is the main reason why she is popular and liked by many people. With her being herself, people can connect and relate to her. As her show bloomed, she was able to get many new opportunities such as to act on television or in films.
Winfrey’s success has not lessened her sense of helping her community which makes her so unique because she spends a big amount of her own time speaking in churches and schools for free. She also spends a lot of her own money helping the less fortunate. Winfrey also uses her show to promote awarenesses and raise money for charities.
I chose Oprah Wynfrey as another person who inspires me because although she has reached her dreams she continues to give back to her community. I think she is so inspiring because nowadays influencers like her tend to use their money on materialistic things but she knows how to and where to spend her money such as helping the less fortunate.

After being an actor for a little while she decided to begin her music career as a singer. She has released five albums and one of the recent albums she released was Thank U, Next. Some of her achievements were winning three American Music Awards which are Artist of the Year in 2016 and two MTV video music awards.
Ariana has become one of the greatest performers in recent years. Not only is she a singer but also a role model. By allowing herself to live and be whoever she wants to be without being bothered on what people think makes her a role model. She inspires people by remaining genuine and being down to earth. What makes her such a new role model was when she had to deal with her ex Mac miller’s death and was open about the pain fame. She was very honest with her fans on how she felt about haters saying it was her fault for her ex’s death and how therapy has saved her life due to that incident.
Ariana is unique because she is not afraid to speak her mind and enjoys and embraces herself. I picked Ariana as one of my role models because I love her music and she encourages me to love myself and to not care what others think of me. She also inspires me to be strong and that no matter what things come my way I will be able to overcome them.
