Hardships and Struggles
Beyonce was a very shy person as a child. She was teased and picked on as a kid being called the "chubby kid". Her parents enrolled her into dance classes to allow her to make friends, once they saw her perform they were astonished. She found a way to break out of her shyness and be confident about herself.
How did she influence the world?
Beyonce has made it clear that "girls run the world". Beyonce runs an empire and shows how strong women are and can be. She raises her voice both on and off stage to urge women to be independent and lead.
