Q. Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?
A. Hmm... I think I'd want to be Jane Eyre. Jane is one of my all time favorite heroines. She goes through so much as a child and even as an adult, only to be forced find herself, take her own path in life and choose her own happiness. I love that. She's strong and kind and beautiful, even though she thinks plain. Jane learns to be comfortable in her own skin. Plus she's a bookworm that thinks education is extremely important - that's so me. I had a rough childhood and have been very self-conscious most of my life, so I can understand how hard it was for her to find herself. I think Ruth Wilson's portrayal of her in the 2007 movie version is perfect. Ruth is Jane for me.
