We totally admire how she’s not afraid to voice her opinion to help others! Rowan also always advocates the importance of self-care, and is all around a young woman to admire.

3. Chloe Lukasiak. This former ‘Dance Moms’ starlet is a total girl power icon! Chloe, who recently opened up about the importance of being kind to other people, is also an author. Her book, ‘Girl on Pointe,’ was recently published and tackles several important topics such as bullying, working to achieve your dreams, and more.
