Fearless Female Interview: Katherine Tlapa
Who is your role model / a female that inspires you?
Lana Del Rey - she has always inspired me. She is so honest and raw with her fans, yet very private about her life. I admire they way she expresses her concern for females, the environment and human rights. She does it all and has always been my icon.
Why do you think it’s important to see more women in positions of leadership?
Growing up, I didn’t know of any females in power in the United States. I think that’s really sad. Young girls around the world should have powerful females to look up to - in politics, leadership movements, and as business leaders. I know there are so many out there, but it seems that only recently they are being recognized.
How can other women and girls support each other in today’s world?
Women and girls need to stop tearing each other down. There are already a million things tearing down women’s confidence daily, but other women should never be in that category. Men, society, businesses, etc, already believe they have the upper hand, so for woman to treat each other poorly only gives others more power over us. If we all stuck together as a team and realized our power and worth, I know we’d be unstoppable.
