Who is she?

Tiana Brown was originally a character with only a recurring role in season one but in season two, she comes into her own as a main character and we start to see her in a new feisty, ambitious light.

She first came to our attention because she often nabbed the cool and catchy tunes, making her seem like an existing RnB diva. In fact, some say that her music and name are very similar to a real-life Empire Records starlet.

 

Why does she rock?

Tiana’s character is awesome because she’s had to go through finding out her boyfriend,  Hakeem was having an affair and instead of falling apart, she stormed into her career with hot and smoking results. We also know there’s a lot of cool storylines for her in season two that sees Tiana take the spotlight in more ways than one.

 

Katniss Everdeen I The Hunger Games (Film)

Who is she?

Katniss Everdeen is the character that every parent of a teenage girl has hoped for. She can take care of herself but also loves her family and is a fierce, loyal friend. Plus she doesn’t spend her life chasing around after boys and worrying about her body or her clothes cos she’s got more important things to worry about like saving the world from the Capitol and President Snow.

Why does she rock?

She’s the ultimate role model to all of us. She’s gorgeous in a natural and carefree way which is refreshing because a lot of the time the world of celebrity seems to be bursting with twentysomethings augmenting their bodies with fake tan, tits and botox. Katniss on the other hand is smart and also humble, becoming the reluctant symbol of the revolution. She’s also relatable as a confused, stubborn and vulnerable young girl who simply wants to have a happy and peaceful life with her loved ones. She’s also taller than one of her partners so she’s a symbol for shorter guys and taller girls!.

Who is she?

Emily Fields is one of four high school protagonists taunted by a dark force in the wake of the disappearance of their best friend. It turns out they all have a lot of secrets and Emily’s is one that makes her totally kick ass in our opinion. When we meet Emily she’s the swimming jock with sporty boyfriend and seemingly perfect life but Emily is actually gay and afraid to come out to her traditional parents and her friends.

Why does she rock?

She has been on an epic journey. Like many teenagers she had to go on a journey of self discovery and independence but Emily had to battle with her sexuality because she wasn’t sure if she was gay. She felt she had to keep it secret from her friends and because she didn’t understand she thought they wouldn’t. it was actually her cool chic friend Hanna who helped her along and she finally started to dig who she was, a gorgeous gay swimmer. We love how she started to embrace it all and debunked a whole load of stereotypes whilst reclaiming others with a whole new sexed-up sexiness. Plus she gets the cutest dates.

Alice Liddell I Alice in Wonderland/Alice Through the Looking Glass (Film)

Who is she?

Whatever Alice is the right Alice to you, her character was designed to be self-possessed and determined from the original books by Lewis Caroll to the Disney animation to the 21st century Tim Burton adaptation.

Why does she rock?

She is the girl in the pretty blue dress who isn’t afraid to be like a girl but a girl who can do anything! She is fearless in the face of the Jabberwoggy and she is inquisitive in order to search for reason and common sense. Alice is the antidote to the hysterical because she is always cool, calm and collected. In the “curiouser and curiouser”  she is dauntless and refuses to allow any person to use status or rank to put her down, especially if she feels they are not acting rationally or fairly. So she drinks the bottle marked poison, she eats the cake marked eat me and happily descends into adventure because wouldn’t life be boring if we didn’t try things?

Tris Prior I Divergent/Insurgent/Allegiant (Film)

Who is she?

When we first meet Tris Prior in Divergent and she seems relatively unassuming in her Abjegation clothes and long blond locks. Even when she shocks everyone and chooses Dauntless as her faction, at the beginning she is pretty wimpy but what’s awesome about Tris is that not only is she a Divergent, someone who fits into all factions and therefore seen as threatening to the world order, but she doesn’t give up on what she wants.

Why does she rock?

The film makers wanted her character to be like James’ Dean’s 1995 character, Jim Stark in Rebel Without a Cause and she is because she’s finding her own identity. She has to break free from her parents to find herself and look for something more. The pressures of conforming make Tris squirm and in Dauntless she feels she can let go, but it doesn’t come naturally at first and she has to fight hard to gain the strength needed but one thing you always see in her is that she is brave. She is the first one to jump into the unknown, literally. She’s not perfect because she also battles with the pressures of being a young person who is expected to grow up fast and fit into an adult world. She speaks to a whole generation of young people who want smart, feisty characters that treat them like they grown-ups and not kids anymore.
