Life Stories To Make You Believe That Everyone Can Make A Difference

Everyone has their own way of trying to find themselves. And along with that comes our hopes and dreams of becoming a gamechanger-- a person who can make a real difference in the world. For this reason, we always seek out things that can help us get one step closer to this dream; things that make us feel more confident about ourselves and brands that have a vision of making a change along with us-- even down to our skincare products.

And Clinique has always been dramatically different that it's no wonder why we are drawn and captivated by the brand. Each Clinique product is truly a difference maker, providing effective solutions, and creating a positive difference in every woman. And since inspiring confidence is at the heart of everything Clinique does, it became the foundation for its new global campaign: Difference Maker.

In this campaign, Gina Rodriguez, Erendira Ibarra, Victoria Pendleton, Jessica Nkosi, Nazan Eckes, and Ning Chang shared their story of "making a difference," whether it be in their careers, communities, or own personal lives, in the hopes of encouraging women across the globe that they too can make a difference. Each of these women also supports charities that are part of The Clinique Difference Initiative, a philanthropic platform supporting education and healthcare for women.

“We were inspired to create the Difference Maker campaign because we wanted to show how one action, one person, or one product can make a difference. By partnering with these six incredibly confident and inspirational women from around the world, we are celebrating the difference they are making, and the influence that they have on women around the globe. With this campaign, we aim to inspire confidence, and empower women to believe that they too, can make a difference.” - Jane Lauder, Global Brand President, Clinique

As a global movement to make a stand and take part in creating a difference, Singapore introduces 3 remarkable women who also took it upon themselves to be an influence for change and empowerment.

Jamie Tan
