7 Amazing Women Who Should Be Your Role Models

Because we should all totally take a page from their book!

It’s always good to look up to someone and just be inspired by them. They push us to be the best version of ourselves and strive to do greater things. Here are our 7 picks of amazing women who deserve to be on every Candy Girl's life peg list.

 1  Emma Watson

Despite her career on full speed, Emma took some time off to pursue a degree at Brown University. Add in her humanitarian work and her fight for feminism (check out her groundbreaking speech at the UN). We can’t help but feel how life imitates art (it's pretty much like she’s actually Hermoine Granger in real life). She’s got the brains to go along with the beauty. Call us spellbound by her passion and wits.

This girl is not afraid to speak her mind. She's intelligent, eloquent, and one of the few celebs in the biz who genuinely make it a point to take a stand on issues of national importance. And we totally admire her for it.

 3  Vanessa Hudgens

She’s gorgeous, talented, and has an amazing sense of style. We can go on and on about how we want to take a page from her book., but what makes us love her most is her positive outlook on life and how she’s an advocate of staying true to oneself, and encouraging people to embrace their quirks. Plus, she surprised a fan on his prom. Need we say more?

 4  Jennifer Lawrence

JLaw, hands down, has got to be pretty up there when it comes to people with a great sense of humor. Girl is such a ball of energy and fun, we could just imagine how awesome it would be hanging out with her. She never takes herself too seriously but at the same time, is the definition of class. She's like the A-list version of your wacky BFF.

 5  Julia Montes

Being a young girl in the industry didn't reduce her to a string of teenybopper roles. Known to many as a versatile actress, she picks out roles that challenge her, even daring not to play the same thing twice. Candy Girls, take heed. Getting out of your comfort zone can be hard at first but it can open a lot of doors of opportunities in the end.

 6  Taylor Swift

This is a no-brainer. T-Swizzle has mastered the art of reinvention. She has transformed herself over and over through her music without losing her roots. From country pop tunes to an electronic alternative sound, her songs have grown with her and with us. We simply can't choose one fave. There's just too many!

 7  Demi Lovato

Demi has had her fair share of downfalls in the limelight. She has wrestled with her battles in the past but the future has never looked brighter for our girl. We salute her for bouncing back on the scene stronger than ever.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
