Anne Frank – a Person Who Inspires Me
Anne Frank was a teen writer who went into hiding during the Holocaust, journaling her experiences in the renowned work The Diary of Anne Frank.
Born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany, Anne Frank lived in Amsterdam with her family during World War II. Fleeing Nazi persecution of Jews, the family went into hiding for two years; during this time, Frank wrote about her experiences and wishes. She was 15 when the family was found and sent to the camps, where she died. Her work, The Diary of Anne Frank, has gone on to be read by millions.
Anne Frank wrote her first diary entry, addressed to an imaginary friend named kitty “I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support”
Anne’s family and the other Jewish people they lived with, almost did not step outside the secret Annex for more than 2 years. She wrote extensive daily entries in her diary to pass the time. This would require extreme patience, the eight members in the household could barely move from 8:30am to 6:30pm, so no one could hear them from below.
Anne Frank inspires me for many reasons. Her personality was strong, which in turn allowed her to show great bravery in life. To be able to sit in bed at night and hear the sirens, taking away friends and family, and hearing the bombs and explosions as the war raged around. To handle all of that and still live a ‘semi’- normal life (as recorded in her diary) proved that she was a very brave young woman.
She was the type of person who always looked on the bright side of life. Even when she was in hiding, she never doubted the fact that she would get out of the war alive. She is influential to me because I see her as a hero in my eyes, she was optimistic, patient, unselfish and strong. For most she is someone to look up to, especially for me.
37 years ago the world watched Diana, a young, beautiful school teacher marry the charming heir to the British throne, Prince Charles. This started a new age for the British Monarchy, so long the outdated traditions and the lifeless personages. People watched in delight as the princess attended her official duties with style and grace that stood in contrast to the formal approach of other royal family members.
When the ‘perfect’ marriage between Prince Charles and Diana began to show some cracks, their conflicts were widely reported in the media. In 1996 the world’s most famous marriage ended in divorce. While remaining a supportive and loving mother to William and Harry, Diana championed a number of charitable causes, including homelessness and aids awareness. She focused her attention on the worldwide menace of landmines.
