J.K. Rowling Taught Me to Embrace the Gift of Failure

When asked which famous person I most admire, my answer is always J.K. Rowling. I love how the bestselling author inspired millions of kids to love reading with her Harry Potter series and pretty much geeked out on the wonderful book series myself. (Every online quiz sorts me into the Gryffindor House, proving I definitely would have helped saved the day at Hogwarts – you know, if it was real and all.) But unbeknownst to Rowling, her advice also inspired me to persevere during a hard time in my life.
