J.K.Rowling is my hero. Look at what she has accomplished. She is a world famous author, she has a wonderful daughter and no longer has to wonder where she is going to drum up her next meal. She is not my hero because she has more money than the Queen of England, is treated like a movie star and is well liked by everyone. No. She's my hero because she followed her dream. Following a dream isn't easy and it never will be. She persisted after getting turned down not once, not twice, but TWELVE times. Now, at 12, I am trying to follow in her footsteps. I'm following my dream too. Just like my hero.
