Marilyn Monroe is one of the world’s most familiar faces, and yet, no one knows the true person behind it. One of the reasons I admire Marilyn so much is because when she was a child she was the girl no one knew or wanted and she became the woman no one could forget. I also admire the way she achieved her dreams despite the sadness, loneliness, and lack of confidence she had as a child and teenager. She was intelligent, strong, witty, and talented; and I am proud of her. I’m proud of how she took initiative of her own dreams to achieve being an actress and happy. I am also proud of the positive message she is sending to young girls and even boys today which is: No matter who you are or where you come from - you way inside of yourself can achieve your dream if you believe in it. Thank you Marilyn, I love you.
