Being a lady today is very important. We are the leaders of tomorrow, we have to set the bar high. Teenage girls believe that equality can be achieved through acting like the male species does, yet it is much harder than "getting with" as many boys at a party.
Equality is achieved by leading a lady like life.
Having self respect. Respecting yourself is the only way to get others to respect yourself. You have to stand tall and hold your head high. The more you raise the bars, the more respect youll get, that much closer will we be towards being equal to men.
Being a lady today means bringing everything youve got to the table and then some more. It's about all those hidden talents we women have, being able to show ourselves is a classy way. We dont have to walk around naked to show our beauty, we are strong. Powerful.
We are the future leaders, we only have to remember to hold onto our core.
Respect. Trust. Being a Lady.
That is all it takes.

Also, she talked to the students about the importance of being confident: "I also studied, I graduated Psychology. So, remember, studies are very important, personality is very important, it is very important to always have faith in yourself. You are unique, you are amazing as you are. So find the power into you!", the actress said.
