H is for Hermione

“Oh, are you doing magic? Let’s see it, then.”
She sat down. Ron looked taken aback.
“Er — all right.”
He cleared his throat.

“Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow,
Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow.”

He waved his wand, but nothing happened. Scabbers stayed gray and fast asleep.
“Are you sure that’s a real spell?” said the girl. “Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

And this was my introduction to Hermione Granger. She was intelligent, read A LOT, could be annoying but was fiercely loyal to those she loved. In the first book alone she grew as a person and by the end of the book, she was off and running. I connected with her because she was prepared for classes (and everything else) and she was always annoyed when others were not as prepared. Boy, is that me! Throughout my education and even in my adult life at meetings… She is also fearless, strong and tough but not afraid to cry. I want to be like her when I grow up!
