According to studies, the toys children play with during their formative years have an effect on their personalities when they grow up. So if a child loves to play with balls, he’s more likely to grow as an athlete. Otherwise, if she loves to collect Barbies, there are chances that she’ll grow chic and fashionable.
To further inspire and influence kids, doll-maker Wendy Tsao came up with an idea of turning Bratz dolls into younger versions of intelligent and prominent women, hoping that these real-life role models can help mold the younger generation into better persons. Below are some of her creations.
J. K. Rowling
Born in 1965, J. K. Rowling is a British novelist who is best known for her Harry Potter series. She believes in the saying, “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.”
Jane Goodall is a British primatologist who is recognized as a UN messenger of peace. She said, “I thought my life was mapped out. Research, living in the forest, teaching, and writing. But in ’86 I went to a conference and realised the chimpanzees were disappearing. I had worldwide recognition and a gift of communication. I had to use them.”
Waris Dirie, is an author, social activist, and a model from Somali, who believes that “If you can survive in the desert, you survive anywhere. I know more than anything life in desert. You can tell by looking at the dirt how long ago it rained, how hard it rained, how much water came through. You can (know) by looking at a plant, a tree, from an animal’s look. I can read the desert like I read my hand.”
Mexican painter Frida Kahlo is noted for saying, “I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”
As the first-ever Canadian female astronaut, Roberta Bonda believes, “To fly in space is to see the reality of Earth, alone. The experience changed my life and my attitude toward life itself. I am one of the lucky ones.”
Pakistani activist and youngest Nobel prize laureate Malala Yousafzai said, “We must tell girls their voices are important.”
