Sadie Robertson is a star on and off of the TV screen. As one of the youngest Rare Under 40 Awards honorees, she’s not afraid to state why and how she’s managed to reach success.

“I’ve been blessed. I have a lot of good mentors in my life,” said Robertson while accepting her Rare Under 40 award.

After appearing on the hit show “Duck Dynasty” in her early teens, she used her passion for dance to stay grounded. In 2014, she appeared on ABC’s hit television competition, “Dancing with the Stars,” ultimately placing second as viewers across the country fell in love with her story and elegant dance routines.

At the young age of 18, Robertson has made it her life priority to release the pressure young women face in conforming to sexual stereotypes. Her book, “Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps it Real and Stays True to her Values,” explains how she overcomes her fears and reaches success.

“My whole message is speaking confidence into the youth of America,” Robertson said in closing.

Despite the criticism she’s received as a young female actress in Hollywood, she walks confidently, aiming to teach others the same.
