(multiple sclerosis) I admire this because it goes to show that she used her wealth to make a change in the world. This is just the first of how much J.K. Rowling has done to help and support such purposes. Another example of this is where J.K Rowling donated a whole set of signed Harry Potter books, toward helping the Haiti appeal.

At the age of 6, where most of us are simply learning to read and write, she wrote he first story about a Rabbit called Rabbit, which gets measles and has different friends visiting it. I admire J.K Rowling for telling her life story, as it shows anyone can achieve their dreams if they really want to. In her own Biography, called ‘Rags to Riches’, she talks about
Even after the completion of her first book, success did not come easy. Her work was rejected by many publishers till editor Barry Cunningham from Bloomsbury accepted her writings. It was actually, Cunningham’s eight-year-old daughter who was given the first chapter of Rowling’s book to read. On reading the first one, she demanded the next one, which led to Cunningham’s decision of publishing Rowling’s work. Sometimes, little things lead to huge successes. No one was very sure of the response that Rowling’s writings would get, but a success story had begun!
