5 reasons Millie Bobby Brown is the role model we all need in our lives

Millie Bobby BrownLet’s face it, we all want to be Millie Bobby Brown. Not only is she super talented – she acts, raps, AND has an amazing sense of humour – she’s turning out to be quite the role model for young women, despite only being 13!

Just last night, the Stranger Things star shared an important message about beauty with her 12 million Instagram followers, as she reflected on the time she shaved her head for her breakthrough role as Eleven in the hit Netflix series.

“The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life,” Millie wrote. “The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to. The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax.”

She continued: “As I looked at myself and couldn’t see my old self, I realized that now; I have a job to do and that is to inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important. What I find important is caring, loving and inspiring other girls. Thought to share my thoughts during this life changing moment.”

However, this isn’t the only time the teenage actress has shared some inspiring food for thought. Here are five reasons why she’s the role model we all need in our lives…
