Who does your daughter look up to? Modern heroines are inventors, wordsmiths, and unafraid to speak up for themselves and what’s right. Meet—and introduce your little princess to—the 21 coolest girls around. There are those who grace the television, such as Queens native Fatima Ptacek, voice of Dora the Explorer, who is also an athlete and social advocate for her community. Role models don't have to be household names. Even though she didn't win, Long Island resident Kayla Mitchell took her cooking passion to MasterChef Junior and learned a lot through the experience along the way.NYC mother Laurie Brown-Nagin started Operation ResCUTE, which helps local animal shelters in their adoption efforts, so every animal can find a loving home, just like the founder's own beloved rescued canine. Hooray for girl power!
