Eglantina Zingg: The Instagram Army: Activism in the 21st Century

Eglantina Zingg has leveraged her success as a model, actress, and TV personality to become a leader in the fight to create better opportunities for women and girls around the world, such as the soccer program Goleadoras.While it’s hardly new that successful, famous people can wield their influence for social change, in our modern social media, FOMO-driven world, it’s become more essential than ever for people with large followings to harness this unprecedented personal influence to create the desperately-needed positive change we need.Eglantina isn’t the only great example. Actress Jameela Jamil promotes body positivity and LGBT rights among her vast following on social media and her personal pages; Alicia Keys has led her millions of fans in support of women’s inclusion through her nonprofit She Is The Music and children’s HIV charity Keep A Child Alive.
