Thankful for someone in History.
This year, all my thanks go to someone who, although criticized for something she once did in her life, is an altogether outstanding person.
Madeline Albright was the first female Secretary of State, however, she was also the first ever US female Ambassador to the United Nations, paving the way for leaders like Susan Rice to take the reigns.
She is truly everything I want to be in life, a strong character, an excellent politician, an academic, and strong-willed. She was criticized for an answer to a question on 60 Minutes, but I believe that she, like many other politicians, journalists etc. are only humans, and shouldn’t be expected to be perfect every time!
Although she is not in all the history textbooks yet, she will be one day, and I’m sure many other young girls like myself will be inspired by her.
