Modern Family star Sarah Hyland may look younger than her 24 years, but despite her girlish appearance, the beauty is indisputably wise. Yesterday in Los Angeles, the actress stepped out to show her support for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, and while she once again looked flawless—she’s been working with celebrity stylist Brad Goreski recently—we fell in love with more than just her outfit.
Between discussing why fighting to end childhood hunger in the United States is important to her, Hyland happily dished some sound words of encouragement for girls everywhere. “Be confident and be strong. Don’t take no for an answer,” she told InStyle. “Be happy with what you have. Never stop until your dreams come true. It sounds cheesy. It’s the tenacity that I think helps.”
Considering she repeatedly stuns with killer timing and hilarious comedic chops on Modern Family, it’s evident she’s full of nothing but perseverance. We've officially found our new favorite role model.
