Miranda Kerr is beautiful and confident but she says her favorite quality about herself is her individuality. Kerr believes that it is important for every woman to embrace her own individuality and take pride in the things that make her unique.
"What I'm trying to encourage, especially within young women, is for them to celebrate individuality, embrace their authenticity and really feel like they don't have to fit into a certain type of box," the model said.
"Everyone is so different and we need to stand together and empower each other as women to be the best versions of ourselves that we know we can be. To achieve that, we need to feel our best, so we should motivate each other to eat healthy and expand on things we love doing. Some people are more intellectual, some people are really funny, whatever it is, we all have something unique to bring to the table. So, find what it is that you're passionate about, be true to your beliefs and don't feel that you have to be anything but yourself."
Kerr likes to give advice on empowerment and individuality and has even written two books on the subjects. Treasure Yourself and Empower Yourself were both written by Kerr and are self-help books that can show you how and why you should be happy with yourself.
Now that Kerr is a mother she says that she feels more empowered than ever and that she sometimes needs that feeling to get her through the busy days. She also said that being a parent has taught her more about herself and how organized and strong she can be.
"I'm definitely more organized now that I've ever been and that's good for me because I already have my next two years planned out with certain contracts that I have, but I make sure that I take a few days off to be with my son when I get home. We read or dance together, we go and hang out with a playgroup or draw together. Those special moments are really important. I'm working ‘moth-er' not ‘harder,'" she said.
