Forget her twerking days!

Last week we covered Miley Cyrus' concert series for her charity The Happy Hippy Foundation. As the concert series continues on, we've actually realised that Miley Cyrus has become a pretty amazing role model. 

While we're still pretty unhappy about the state of celebrities who don't get involved in social and political matters, Miley Cyrus' latest efforts are beyond exciting. 

1. She's been tirelessly campaigning for homeless youth awareness.


2. She has acknowledged that she is gender non-binary.

I didn't want to be a boy. I kind of just wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy and I think that’s what I had to understand. Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.

Hopefully this can encourage other people who feel similarly to embrace who they are.

3. Her latest Happy Hippy video features Laura Jane Grace and sheds some light on Trans visibility.


4. She doesn't get hung up on guys, which is a valuable lesson to remember.

5. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her.

Which is one of the healthiest attitudes a person can have in life.

7. And she has a big heart, especially when it comes to animals.

And you can always trust someone who loves animals.
