Why Emma Watson is my Hero

I was in a very feminist mood today. So I started thinking of Emma Watson. I’m a fan-girl, and a proud one at that. It’s not every day that you come across a talented actress who studied at an Ivy League university and became the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador before the age of 25! But Emma has proved that fame is not the answer. She has always perfectly balanced her work with her studies and never compromised on her education for her career. She is counted among the most influential women in the world and has no qualms about living life on her own terms. She is  role model to me, and to a million other girls out there.

So I put together a list of 7 times when we fell in love with her all over again.

1. When she was a true Hermione

"The saddest thing for a girl to do ..."

2. When she embraced her individuality

"I want to decide who I am for myself"

3. When she told us how trivial the opinion of others is

"Your self-worth shouldn't be tied up in what a stranger thinks"

4. When she told us it’s okay to be different

"Don't feel stupid ..."

5. When she recognized her inner beauty

"Beauty comes from within"

6. When she told us a woman is not  doll

"I am a human being who is not made to look like a doll"

7. When she told young girls they don’t have to be princesses

"If I were a princess, I'd be a warrior princess"

We love you for the person you are, Emma.

Thank you for  childhood full of memories.
