What would the world be like if Celebrities took tips from Jennifer Lawrence?

This post from a 13-year old blogger impressed me. Her comments about celebrities changing the way we live adds a lot to my thoughts about the leadership powers of role models. Some people think it’s too much to expect celebrities to be leaders not just lucratively marketed public figures. But the power of that visibility inspires many celebrities to step beyond a prefab role into a culturally challenging role.
