Seven Inspiring Women With a Powerful Message

Seven Inspiring Women With a Powerful Message

Sadie Robertson, 19

"Taking responsibility is the opposite of blaming other people”

Sadie Robertson is an American tv personality who embody's everything about being true to yourself. Whether you are a Christian like her, or not religious at all, she will leave you feeling inspired by her honest and vulnerable approach to life.

Not only does she have a book, a speaking tour, a clothing line and a stint on the US version of "Dancing With the Stars" under her belt, but more importantly she has a huge amount of courage and is willing to talk openly about her experiences. Everything from her own breakup (watched by 1.7million people on YouTube!), to her insecurities, anxiety and cultivating self-confidence and love for yourself!

Malala

Malala Yousafzai, 18

"I don't want revenge on the Taliban, I want education for the sons and daughters of the Taliban"

If you've already heard about Malala Yousafsai, you are probably as impressed as I am! This courageous, young woman is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner and a huge influencer in the movement for the educational rights of women.

After blogging anonymously for the BBC about the Taliban's stronghold in her home country of Afghanistan, she was later shot at gunpoint for encouraging and leading female education.

This courageous survivor refused to give up and she now travels the world as a human rights and education activist, making it possible for millions of girls to receive an education.

Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton, 27

"Courage doesn't mean you don't get afraid. Courage means you don't let your fear stop you"

This pro surfer is a huge example of grace. After having her arm taken by a tiger shark as a 13-year-old, she has gone on to inspire millions with her compassion, courage and fearlessness in and out of the water. Sometimes when I've felt angry or confused as to why something "negative" has happened to me, I think about how Bethany lost her arm and yet she finds the way to accept her situation with grace and doesn't dwell in difficulty but lives life to the fullest with a positive outlook! #inspiring

Mother Theresa

Mother Theresa

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier"

Mother Theresa is my absolute hero. I just love her. She bought a deep message of love and hope to humanity that continues even after her death. Her heart seemed so big, her desire to help so pure. She made a real difference to the people of the world in the 20th century, and if there's one thing I learnt from her it is that love and kindness is the gift of life. As she said, "Every time you smile at someone, it is in action of love, a gift to that person. A beautiful thing."

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss, 25

"If you believe in yourself and your truly confident in who you are you can do anything. I really believe that"

Karlie Kloss doesn't need much of an introduction if you're a millennial and you're reading this article! Creative, natural and giving, she supports the growth of young women through her programme Kode With Karlie, which offers scholarships to young women so they can learn how to code.

Most of all, she is inspiring because she isn't afraid to be herself!

Akiane

Akiane Kramarik, 22

"The art of life is loving and listening to one another"

This self-taught artist picked up her fist paintbrush as a three-year-old in her parents home town, near Chicago. Coming from an extremely poor household and having never taken an art lesson in her life, she began to draw and it was immediately clear how talented she was.

Akiane's artwork is inspired by visions and dreams that she began experiencing as a young girl. She painted what she saw in these images and describes it as painting from the heart.

With so much depth in her paintings and being exposed to the world through The Oprah Winfrey show, her artwork now sells for millions of dollars.

She has set up her own academy to teach young adolescents to paint and express themselves through creativity.

Our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and girlfriends

Motherdaughter Is there anyone more influential in our early life than our mothers? As life goes on, our sisters and friends become such important parts of our lives; they shape us, they support us, they test us and they inspire us.

It's easy to take these exceptional women in our life for granted and at times be less kind then we hope to be.

But let's change that and remind our friends, sisters, grandmothers, aunts and mothers how AWESOME they are! Let's love them and be inspired by their example of strength and heart!

Although today is International Women's Day, we really feel that every day should be International Human's Day. Each day is an opportunity for kindness and respect of one-and-other.

With love,

Sach and Steph xx
