“Don’t ever hear in your own head ‘who am I to say something?’ and BE BRAVE.” This simple yet powerful quote alone is enough for us to be huge fans of Emma Watson. You might know her as the actress who played Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” movies, but Emma has accomplished so much more since her Hogswarts days! Actress, dancer, and humanitarian are just some of the accolades she’s earned throughout the years, but let’s take a closer look at why we look up to Emma Watson.
There are many life lessons we can all learn from Emma’s amazing career. When she got her start in the Harry Potter series, Emma played the role of a strong female character who was not only clever but brave. And in between filming the movies, she made the time to receive a college education at both Oxford and Brown University. The fact that she had already made more money than most of us will make in a lifetime by the time she was a teenager didn’t stop her from realizing the importance of investing in herself and getting an education. Not too cool for school? Pretty inspiring if you ask us!
In 2013 she won both the MTV Movie Awards’ Trailblazer Award and the GQ Woman of the Year Award. She’s also starred in critically acclaimed films such as “My Week with Marilyn” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” But what truly makes Emma so impressive is that she became a role model just by being herself. Her values, work ethic, and passion are the admirable traits that have made her stand out among her peers.
In recent years, Emma has dedicated herself to fight for gender equality. As a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, her HeForShe campaign has inspired millions of people around the world to promote the acceptance of feminism and gender equality among both men and women.
It takes much more than mere beauty to accomplish so much and at such a young age. At only 25 years old, Emma Watson is using her fame and talent for good, and we can’t wait to see what incredible thing this fearless girl power star does next!
