Ac­tor Salma Hayek (left) ad­vises young girls to stand out and not be­come a part of the crowd. The 49-yearold, Mex­i­can-Amer­i­can ac­tor thinks that the new gen­er­a­tion should have courage to be dif­fer­ent and ac­cept who they are, re­ported Peo­ple mag­a­zine. “I think the most im­por­tant thing to tell the new gen­er­a­tions is to have the courage to be unique, to be cu­ri­ous about who they are, in­stead of try­ing to blend in. The most im­por­tant thing to say to the girls is to not try to be like the other girl. Not to try to fit in, but to try to re­ally be pro­found thinkers that are ex­cited about their dif­fer­ences and ex­plore what they are and who they are and what can come out of the new,” Hayek said. The mother of 8-year-old daugh­ter, who was hon­oured at the lun­cheon for her work with the Chime for Change char­ity, said women have the strength to give this world a new face. “I think the voice of women can change the world, but we don’t know our voice. We’ve never re­ally in­ves­ti­gated. We’ve been too busy for gen­er­a­tions, try­ing to op­er­ate within sys­tems that were de­signed by men. I don’t think we re­ally have tapped into our po­ten­tial or our own cre­ativ­ity,” she said.
