E leanor Roosevelt is someone we both greatly admire; many of her quotes, including the one above (Roosevelt, 1960, p. 29) are truly inspiring. She was a respected public figure. Her claim to fame included being the longest-serving First Lady of the United States (1933-1945) and her continued political activism afterward by serving as an American delegate to the newly formed United Nations (UN). She was one of the drafters of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and she chaired the Human Rights Commission. Although she led a privileged life, she was a champion for social justice. Her accomplishments are remarkable and serve as a study in leadership.
