Of course, the model has quite an amazing list!
Who are your role models? Do you look up to your big sister, your mom, or another inspiring woman in your family? How about your favorite celebrities, who are always using their voices to speak up for the cases they care about? In a new interview, model and body positivity activist Iskra Lawrence shared that her own personal role models are the bold women who inspire her to be her best self.
“I think the qualities that all of my personal role models share are compassion, confidence, determination, and a strong sense of self,” she told Who What Wear. “Whether it has been my mum, my close friends, other models I’ve worked with, the people I am most inspired by are the ones that are unapologetically themselves and encourage me to be the best and truest version of myself.”
We love Iskra’s take on role models. It isn’t about trying to copy the best things about others. Instead, her inspirations list motivate her to shine the spotlight on her own best qualities. With wise words like this, it’s no wonder we’re obsessed with Iskra herself!
In case you missed it, Iskra recently joined Aerie’s REAL campaign alongside more powerful ladies: Yara Shahidi, Aly Raisman, and Rachel Platten.
