CELEBRITIES AS INFLUENCERS – USAMA NADEEM (LEADERSHIP)

In todays world, the people that have the most power to influence people are the celebrities. They have media as their biggest weapon which can even paint black into white. There was a discussion whether the celebrities influence people's thinking in one of the sessions. I wented to take part in that discussion but couldn't do it because of a lot of people participating. I personaly think they have a huge impact on people's thinking and through their glamour and influence they can drag people anywhere. I have seen celebrities fo the weardest things on TV and live shows that could have a very negative impact on people and espacially teenagers but they tend to folloe them blindly without even thinking. I personaly feel that blindly following celebs is not the right thing becasue I think that they have their own particular agenda that they are following and they want people to follow that as well. A celebrity promoting drugs on TV or in a movie may even cause some teenager his life, who might even start drugs after watching him do so. 

So, influences can be positive or negative and it is really important to judge the intention of the idol and role models that one follows becasue that is the most important thing. I think that due to todays influencial media, celebs have even become much better influencers and leaders than some of the biggest leaders of all times.
