She is the ultimate role model. She was born into stardom. But she got one foot in the real world and want to make a difference in the world. She is the real deal. You can tell she is genuin and got her heart in it. Some famous people seems to do some charity just for show to get good publicity. But angelina cares for real. She is awesome. I admire her.
