For my last post about literary role models, I chose… Hermione Granger!
She is the best role model for teenage (and preteen, and twenty-somethings, and all-grown up) girls. She’s brave, she’s intelligent, she’s dedicated and she is fierce. I’ve been reading Harry Potter since I could read and I’ve loved Hermione since the beginning. Never once does she sell herself short. She never lets her friends down. She never tells herself she’s not good enough. She doesn’t care about what she looks like. She’s a leader. She holds her friends together. She would do anything for the people she loves and she never gives up.
As for her real-life counterpart, Emma Watson carries herself with grace and confidence. She doesn’t get caught up in her fame or her fans. She stays humble and down-to-earth and relaxed. She’s faithful to who she is and I think that’s awesome.
What do you guys think of literary role models? I have a lot, and think I’ll start posting about them more.
Who are yours?
