Should Professional Athletes and Musical Artists Considered Role Models? – Alysia Roberts

I think professional athletes and musical artists could be considered as role models because most of them are people who have actually gone through
what a lot of children are going through or have gone through. Although some
athletes and musicians should not be executed as a role model for reasons that
they do drugs, didn’t finish school, or encourage kids to do careless things. A
good role model should tell kids to start and finish school and donate to
charities. In my personal opinion some of my personal role models when I was younger were Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Venus and Serena Williams. There can be a lot of different types of role models for different people, if someone looks forward to joining the NBA they can look up to someone like Kevin Garnett or Michael Jordan. I believe that kids should look up to older musicians and athletes because a collection of artists and athletes today are foolish and don’t know what they’re doing.
