Socialite and heiress Paris Hilton – whose grandfather Barron Hilton revealed he will to donate 97% of his $2.3 billion wealth to charity earlier this year – has stated that she does not have any hard feelings about his decision, and has announced that she is happy to be a role model for young girls.
“My grandfather is an incredible man,” she said. “He is very generous. And what he is doing is amazing.”
The 27-year-old Hilton is currently in Turkey to judge the 2008 Miss Turkey contest, and said she valued not only beauty but also “good heart” when evaluating the contestants. She also said she sees herself as a role model for young women.
“This is my first time judging anything like this,” she told Reuters. “I’m going to look at how the girls carry themselves, what they look like, the way they dress and what they say.”
