Eleanor Roosevelt 1884-1962

Cate T. Pine Room June 2013

Introduction Famous Quotation: Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it you can't be friends with anyone. Best Known For: Working for equal rights, being a role model to women and a respected First Lady.

What I Find Interesting: Her close friend was Amelia Earhart. She took a ride with her.

3 Key Qualities: 1. Risky 2. Helpful 3. Good natured

I chose this person because she seemed interesting and no one knew about her, even me until now.

Overcame a Hardship/Challenge Her parents died when she was 8. Also, her mom treated her poorly because she thought Eleanor was ugly unlike her. Her mom called her "Granny". I think that her mom should've treated her daughter more kindly. I think it was unfair for Eleanor.

Showed Compassion and Empathy Eleanor helped soldiers during World War II, and sent notes to them to comfort them.

I like to do good things like writing thank you notes and "I hope you feel better soon" notes. I love the feeling.

Took Action She helped the poor during the Great Depression and taught the children.

If I were a poor kid during that time, I would be shocked to see her teach me because most adults were more focused on themselves.

Persevered As First Lady, she went to all kinds of places hurt by WWII. She never gave up even though she tried to help.

I think her visits to the hospital helped the soldiers feel better even if they died.

Demonstrated Bravery It took a lot of bravery to smile in public because she didn't want people to laugh at her buck teeth.

I know how Eleanor felt because my brothers laugh at me for no reason. It feels embarrassing to be laughed at.
