DALLAS -- Hillary Clinton has already made history as the first woman nominated for president by a major party. So, as we head into the November election, we're taking a look at other #LeadingLadies using their platform to inspire others.

Women just like Sadie Robertson.

"This isn't about me, I'm doing this for a bigger purpose," Sadie said in an exclusive interview with NewsFix.

At just 19-years-old, she's a motivational voice for teens across America. It's not just because she's apart of the Duck Dynasty, Sadie is setting herself apart from reality TV fame to live original.

"It's one thing to hear stuff from your parents or get advice from someone older than you," she explained. "But  to hear from someone your age walking through it with you, it's like, 'woah!'"

Her Live Original Tour kicks off in Dallas at the Allen Convention Center. With her "squad" by her side, Sadie will talk about suicide, depression, and several other issues teens are facing.

"So, there's eight of us in the squad, and  we all have different stories," she added. "My cousin, he did deal with suicide and stuff like that, and he's going to address it."

Although Sadie is spending most of her time on the road, she isn't shying away from the big screen. She'll star in the upcoming film, I'm Not Ashamed, the true story about Rachel Joy Scott who was one of the victims killed in the Columbine shooting.

Sadie says she joined the cast to help send a strong message about teen bullying.

"The thing is, she wasn't perfect, she went through a lot of different things. For me, I'm not an actress or anything, and this is my first movie to do, and it wasn't because it was just a movie -- it's a movement."

Whoever said you're too young to influence change hasn't met Sadie, another example of a #LeadingLady.
