She has inspired many people when she played the smart and outspoken Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, but more so when she took on the role of United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. After her moving speech to launch the #HeForShe campaign, Em received support and hate alike but never did she stop for a second to allow her detractors hinder her from making this world a better place for us to live in.
2 Taylor Swift

Aside from her songs and her being a music sensation, T-Swizzle is also known for her beautiful heart. She is never afraid to be vulnerable infront of her fans and even the whole world. And speaking of fans, Tay doesn't just treat them as mere audience to her life as a performer but as her friends. From Twitter to Tumblr to Instagram, this musician makes sure she spends time to interact with them and let them know that she understands.
3 Diane von Furstenberg
This fashion icon is known for her artistic and creative life, but beyond all her achievements, Diane shares the most practical life lesson we should all live by: To drive your own life. She has been working for most of her life and has shown the world that she is in charge of where and who she wants to be, inspiring women everywhere to do the same.
4 Pope Francis

His Holiness Pope Francis brought with him his humility when he sat as the leader of the Roman Catholics. He has shunned life of extravagance, expressed his views on issues that didn't isolate anyone, and extended his hand to meet with the leaders of other religions. In the words of Time writer Desmond Tutu, "Few would dispute that Pope Francis is a special gift from God who has brought a breath of fresh air to the Vatican."
