Camila Mendes is the role model we all want and need!

In a recent interview, the 24-year-old “Riverdale” star opened up about how she deals with being in the spotlight, focusing on how she’s reacted to becoming a role model for young people!

Camila reveals that, at first, she felt insecure being a role model since she was dealing with some mental health issues, but now she sees herself as a voice among the fans who watch her hit-show and she loves being able to help them in any way that she can!

“It’s a huge power that I almost didn’t want to take at first. I didn’t want to be a role model because I didn’t feel like one. But, instead of trying to be like, ‘You guys should all respect everything that I say and see me as this perfect thing,’ it was more like, no, I can be a voice, because I’m going through what they go through, probably. Since I’m a real person, I’m willing to talk about it.”
