While young women in the United States have a plethora of movie stars and musicians to look up to, many believe that the best role model is one of a strong, confident woman who is constantly succeeding. In the opinion of one leading women’s physician, there may be no one who embodies this better than
the current White House Press Secretary, Mrs. Sarah Sanders. On a daily basis, Mrs. Sanders holds press conferences where she stands her ground for hours, facing blood thirsty reporters and hostile questioning with ease and grace. Always composed, Mrs. Sanders is brilliant, assertive, and always extremely well prepared for the daily onslaught of questions. She’s a confident young woman at the peak of her career, succeeding and leading.
“When it comes to a discussion of role models with my young patients, I always suggest Sarah Sanders.” Said Dr. Greg Marchand, a leading women’s physician in Mesa, Arizona.
“They may say that they look up to people like the Kardashians, or Beyoncé, but I like to encourage them to pick a role model that stands up for herself as a leader on a daily basis. You can’t do any better than Sarah Sanders. She’s really a great role model for all young women.”
One of the most amazing facets of her career is that she faces this kind of adversity every single day in her press conferences.
“All a young woman needs to do is watch one of her press conferences, it can really be an empowering experience.” Said Dr. Marchand. “You can tell right away, she’s done her homework and
is ready to do her job. She isn’t going to be pushed around or manipulated by anyone. Those reporters, although understandably just doing their job, are vicious and unrelenting. They are trying to get
her to make a mistake or to back down from what she’s saying. She never does. She is the very epitomy of an intelligent woman in a position of power. She’s an inspiration to young women everywhere.In addition to being the White House Press Secretary, which is the spokesperson for the President, the 35 year old Arkansas native is a graduate of Ouachita University, as well as a wife and mother of three children. She juggles a full schedule of White House responsibilities and was named one of the 40 most influential young people in politics in Time Magazine’s “40 under 40” in 2010. Despite all her responsibilities she always appears brilliant and well prepared as she faces the press everyday.
“She’s the kind of strong, independent woman you hope your daughter grows up to be.” Said Dr. Marchand. “It shows you don’t have to look like a supermodel to be a successful woman and a leader. She’s a great example of a powerful woman who is successful because of her hard work, determination and intelligence. I hope more parents take the opportunity to introduce their daughters to who she is and what she is doing.”
