To be innovative is to see and do things in a different way. Innovators have persistence; they take risks, and make mistakes. Many of the people who have grown up to be innovators have always been curious. They don't like to believe that just because everyone does something a certain way, means that it's the only way. 
    Most of the time when someone thinks 'innovator', they think of Steve Jobs. Well someone you might not think of is Audrey Hepburn; she was both an innovator and an icon. In her time, most girls thought to be beautiful you had to be the cookie cutter, blonde, blue-eyed girl. Audrey knew this wasn't the case, and showed women everywhere you just had to be yourself and nothing else. She is now considered to be one of the   most beautiful women ever, and continue to inspire women all over with her ideas.
