The Role Models community is no stranger to using our voices for change. We are empowered when we see others doing the same! The importance of using your platform for good online and offline is highlighted in this Forbes Article about Stephanie Shepherd. Over the years she has realized the positive impact she can have by addressing social and environmental issues. 

"In 2018, an estimated 2.65 billion people were using social media worldwide, according to the online database, Statista. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook — that’s where we are. That’s where we’re spending a significant amount of time, energy, and attention. And while I feel incredibly fortunate to be deemed someone with “social influence”, the real work is leveraging it for social activism. It is not only my responsibility, but it’s also my privilege to advocate for organizations doing meaningful work and invite friends and strangers alike to take action."
