The digital age brought us a slew of influencers that millennials look up to for anything #goals—style, beauty, life, squad. Name it, and we've got one and many more! That's why these modern-day role models have a big responsibility upon their shoulders, to look the part and to send a positive message with every post they make. People of all ages are on the look out for what they're up to, and thankfully, these girls exist who know all too well that each of us needs a lift from the daily grind.
With Globe's newest movement here in the Philippines called It's A Girl Thing, an event happening on November 18 that aims to inspire and unite young women, they recognize the importance of the impact digital influencers have on their audience. So bringing together nine girls who advocate on Girl Power is a way to push for this advocacy—that females all have a voice, no matter their age, race, and social status are. Meet these inspiring gals below!
1. Bethany Mota

With everything under her belt at 21, she's such a big name in the vlogosphere that she's one of Time Magazine's most influential teens in the world for two years. Her fun and lively videos where you can learn DIY, get tips on fashion and beauty, and more will surely make you feel so positive just by watching her!
