With the right attitude, you can even inspire others – like model Gia.

What makes a good role model?

Everyone has different role models and style icons. Some of us look to career mentors who motivate us, others admire personalities that influenced us growing up, like parents or grandparents. Whatever the reason, we all admire different people for who they are, what they do or how they look. Being a role model is also a responsibility – after all, others may follow in your footsteps. Our model Gia has experienced what it means to inspire others in her home country: “I went abroad to work as a model, which is unusual where I come from. It has inspired others to pursue something they have always wanted to do.“
