Hmm, have I written an article on this? It seems vaguely familiar, but I looked through like five pages of my articles and didn't see it, so I'm gonna write it anyway, hizzaaa! Remember this is purely opinion based, so don't be mad if it strays from your own list :3 I hope you enjoy! //edit; I decided to change it up and instead of ranking the princesses, talk about what makes them all a good role model and not talk about the bad parts (because positivity yayayyy).
Snow's a trooper, plain and simple. She's fourteen years old, the youngest of all the princesses, and yet despite that arguably has to deal with the most. I find her to be a huge role model in my life. In hard times, I look to her and think about how she remained her cheerful and optimistic temperament despite all that was thrown at her, so why shouldn't I??
Like Snow, Cinderella had to deal with a bunch, far too much. Cinderella is a great role model I'd say, as she's a very realistic character in my opinion, yet an extremely strong and optimistic one as well. I find it hard to complain when I see her life and it really puts into perspective that doing a chore or two to help around the house really is nothing compared to what she had to go through.
Aurora doesn't necessarily have the amount of optimism that Snow and Cinderella share, but that doesn't mean she isn't a great role model as well. Aurora really does show you how to make the best of a bad situation. Despite living in isolation and her aunts not allowing her to have social contact, she still allows herself to have a relatively good life, making friends with the forest animals and always being pleasant to her aunts despite the fact that they're holding her back.
In many ways Ariel is a bit of a mixed bag. Fans consider her a great role model, while many other people consider her a bad one. I'd say I view Ariel as a role model in the fact that she has many characteristics I wish I had myself. She's daring, courageous, and goes after her dreams, all things that, in moderation, are great characteristics to have.
Many people who probably say Belle's strongest attribute is sticking with the Beast and learning to love him, and while that definitely makes her a great role model, I'd say her staying with her father is an even bigger show of her character. Despite having so many dreams of adventure and hating the town she lived in, she stayed there because her father needed her.
I think Jasmine's ability to forgive is a strong attribute that she possesses. I think Jasmine is a great role model because she can sympathize with Aladdin and see where he was coming from while lying. She's also a great role model for the fact that she knows her worth and will not let anyone treat her any differently. She can be a bit overboard at times, but how she stands up for herself is very admirable to me.
Pocahontas' is a great role model for many reason. There's the obvious reasons, such as her fighting for the environment and human rights, but it also goes deeper than that. I view Pocahontas as a role model because she shows us that it doesn't matter how you get somewhere, it's where you end up at. Pocahontas spent the entire movie basically avoiding her problems more or less, which wasn't very good of her, but in the end of the movie she realizes what needs to be done and does it.
Mulan is an amazing role model of course. Her devotion to her father in taking his place in the army was such a brave act that I'm sure we could all learn from. She also is a great way of showing the obvious message that girls can do everything guys can do and more, which I'm sure has inspired many young girls that have seen the movie.
Again, incredible role model. I think every single one of us can learn a thing or two from Tiana. Coming from someone as lazy as I, I find her constant striving and chasing of her dreams to be extremely admirable. She doesn't just wait for things to happen, she goes after them which I find awesome.
I'd say the main reason Rapunzel is such a great role model is the action of standing up to her abuser, Gothel, in the end. It's really such a courageous act and really makes her an amazing role model. On top of that, like other princesses, she always knows how to make the best out of a bad situation. She never really seems to be put down by her situation, always finding new hobbies to spend her time doing instead of dwelling on the fact that she can't leave her tower.
Merida is also often looked at as a bit of a bad role model, but I wouldn't state that as fact. She does make mistakes for sure, but she learns from them and repents for them. She doesn't push her mistakes aside, she takes them head on and fixes them herself because she knows that she caused this whole mess and only she could fix it.
Personally I find Anna to be a huge role model for me for many reasons. First of all, her optimism and joy is of course extremely admirable, but when you combine that optimism with the boldness and courage she has, she really makes a great role model. I struggle with confidence and boldness, but Anna sees a problem and attacks it and she is who she is unapologetically.
It seems that as of late, Elsa is the unpopular girl on the Fanpop block. There's a lot of negativity surrounding her, but I think she's still a great role model for many things. She shows great self-restraint and care for others in the way that she stays away from Anna because she wants to protect her. She also has shown a lot of people that bad situations are temporary and that there is light on the other side of the tunnel.
Eh..so yeah. Sorry if my articles are uninspired and drab lately, I'm just feeling rather uninspired myself, but I hope this was still somewhat alright?? Anyways thanks for reading <333
