Think of a woman who inspires you. It can be someone in your family, like a mom, sister, or grandmother, or it can be someone famous, like a singer, actress, or politician. What do you admire about this woman? Do you like the way she looks? The way she acts? Her success in her life or her career? If you want to give a compliment to this bold, beautiful woman, you can say that she is fierce.

We call something fierce when it is very amazing, impressive, and beautiful. This word is often used to describe strong, powerful women, but we can also use it to describe things in the fashion world, like a certain outfit or hairstyle. For example, you could tell your friend that her dress looks fierce or that her nails are fierce today. You could also tell your friend that she is fierce!

There are many fierce women in the entertainment field. For example, many people think Madonna is fierce because of her long career of making music and her fearless lifestyle. And most people agree that Beyonce’s pregnant performance at the Grammys this year was very fierce! Singer Britney Spears admires both of these women, and she tweeted her appreciation of them on International Women’s Day. However, most people would also say that Britney herself is very fierce! Remember her 2001 VMAs performance where she danced with a snake?

Who is a fierce person in my life?



In my childhood, the famous actors were my fierce person in my life. I was crazy about them. But now, I only want to be the fierce person in my own life. I would think I had been this person.
