“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.”



We love J.K. Rowling. Most of the world loves J.K. Rowling. She is the mother of Harry Potter (and actual children too, go her!) We thought we would do a bit of an appreciation blog post for the lovely lady. So, here are five reasons we just love J.K. Rowling.





She’s a feminist. She fights for equality and what is right. Her female characters are all strong individuals who are intelligent and opinionated and we love her for that.



She donates to charities. We love to be able to share our money with the less fortunate but unfortunately sometimes that just isn’t possible for us. J.K. Rowling lost her billionaire status because she donates frequently to different charities close to her.



She is a really genuine person. She started off with not a lot, and didn’t have much luck getting the first book published. Turned away by countless publishing houses, she didn’t give up and we applaud her for that. She hasn’t lost her sense of being, she is still a very grounded and honest person.



She is an advocate for self-love/worth. Who can forget the famous quote, "I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be?" She reminds us that we are so much more than what we look like, we are smart, funny and independant, we can be whatever we want to be.



She’s a Gryffindor. Need we say more.
