Do we still need role models?
How do you translate Role Models in other languages?
In Polish you say , autorytet, from Latin autoritas, in Italian we prefer to use an adjective and we have a difference between autoritario (authoritarian) and autorevole (influential). To be a good Role Model you must be autorevole but not autoritario. How can you be, nowadays, a good Role Model? According to the workshop we have attended today, a good Role Model is somebody with high moral values, he/she is admired but not arrogant and is willing to invest time and effort to achieve his/her goals. A Role Model is also an influential person who show consideration and respect for other people.
