For some of our heroines it was enough to have a pair of high-heeled shoes and a couple of original ideas in their heads. Well, a bit of luck, of course. What are they, the miracle women of our time? We study and get inspired!
Do you know how much a fruit box weighs? Don't even try to guess: 30 kg. Natalia Vodianova learned this at the age of 10. In order to single-handedly feed her three daughters (one of whom was born with a diagnosis of autism), Natasha's mother had to earn extra money at the Nizhny Novgorod bazaar. And the fragile Natasha had no choice but to help her mother, carrying heavy baskets and boxes. Who would have imagined that less than ten years later, this girl in a worn-out tracksuit would showcase the clothes of the leading fashion houses on the main catwalks of the world. Nevertheless, it is so: at the age of 17, Natalia is enrolled in the Nizhny Novgorod modeling agency "Evgenia", and a couple of years later, as part of a French modeling agency, she ends up in Paris. And away we go: working with Gucci, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, DonnKaran, Louis Vuitton. Photo sessions, interviews,recording of commercials. However, Natalya considers her main merit not to be modeling, but charity. Today Natalia Vodianova is a goodwill ambassador to the UN and the creator of her own Naked Heart Foundation to help children with special needs. It is currently one of the most influential Russian foundations, respected not only in our country, but also abroad.
“Thank you for coming, but you are not suitable for us,” this story began as a plot for a flash mob # I was taken. In the distant 70s, Oprah Winfrey was really not taken to conduct news on television due to … excessive emotionality. The girl didn’t remake herself, but decided to make dignity out of her “lack”. This is how the Oprah show appeared - a legendary program, whose guests over the years were Barack Obama, Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson, Whitney Houston. If you want to get the tree talking - ask Oprah how. Bright, loud, not indifferent, Oprah became famous all over the world for being able to "split" even the most closed interlocutor. The most famous example of her brilliant work is cyclist Lance Armstrong, who admitted to doping on the air of the show. Today Oprah Winfrey is the first and only black woman billionaire in history,the owner of the Oprah Winfrey Network TV channel, Oprah Magazine and the Oprah Radio satellite radio station and one of the most influential celebrities according to Forbes magazine. In addition to her television career, Oprah starred in films. And also successful! Winfrey won both an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her role in Steven Spielberg's The Blossom Magenta. As they say, you must be able!
They say it rightly: the main thing in politics is not education, but civic position. Take the most powerful woman in politics, Angela Merkel, for example. The future chancellor of Germany studied physics, was preparing to work in one of the German scientific institutes and, probably, she would have built a brilliant career there (Angela even defended her thesis, which can be read in the library of the Leipzig University), if not for the events of the late 1980s. The processes of the reorganization of Germany, the fall of the Berlin Wall captured the activist girl. In 1989, Merkel joined the Democratic Awakening organization, and soon joined the Christian Democrats, of which she is still a leader. Today, all leading male politicians listen to the speeches of the female chancellor. As once the entire world community listened to the opinion of Catherine the Great. It is no coincidence that a portrait of the Russian empress, a German by birth, has been on the desk of Angela Merkel for many years. And also wonder women.
What does it take to become a cult singer? Excellent vocal skills - yes. Good hearing, of course. Useful acquaintances and connections in music clubs are not bad. But there is one more important point: the ability to attract attention. It was on the latter that the Italian-American Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, made a bet. During her school years, she was a real black sheep: it cost her nothing to come to class in a pink wig and huge glasses without glasses, not paying attention to the indignation of teachers and the ridicule of classmates. Her life is a series of constant experiments on herself: she either runs away from home and wanders for several days, then she gets a job as a waitress, then she enrolls in a group of go-go dancers … Add phenomenal diligence to thislearned to play the piano) and you have a recipe for one of the most successful music brands of the 21st century. A few years ago, Lady Gaga's world tour became the highest grossing in all of musical history.

Conquer financial peaks and the seven highest mountains on all continents of the world, ski to both poles? It sounds unreal, however, it turned out to be within the power of fragile Mary Gordon, a woman who believes that the path to the goal gives much more satisfaction than its achievement. There were many victories in her life, and, for sure, new achievements await ahead. Did the young native of Vladikavkaz, who came to Moscow in 1991 to study to be a journalist, know what career lay ahead of her? Maybe not, but, of course, I believed in my strength and went forward. It was Maria's dedication that allowed her, while still a student of the journalism faculty of Moscow State University, to become an employee of the Russian branch of the Washington Post, and then go to distant America to study political science at the University of Wisconsin. In 1998 Maria became an employee of the Goldman Sachs investment bank in London,and then headed the prestigious Emerging Markets Department. She became an independent director of the diamond giant Alrosa and joined the supervisory board of the Moscow Exchange. Her successful career did not interfere with her happy marriage: Maria has two children. But she, the daughter of a professional climber, has always been attracted by the mountains, and in 2014 she traded her financial career for snowy peaks, although she remained on the board of directors of Alrosa. Today, Everest, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua lie behind this fragile woman with an open smile … Maria visited the North and South Poles and set a women's world record in the Explorer's Grand Slam discipline. Maria also founded the Grit & Rock Foundation for children interested in mountain climbing. "Willpower is much more important than the ability to walk in Louboutins and paint," Maria admitted in an interview. And how can you argue with that?
