Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables
Anne grows from an over-imaginative, easily offended and stubborn girl, with a rich fantasy life and a strong will to a woman who is kind, proud of herself and works hard to achieve her goals. As a child she easily took offense at the slightest things and shunned people who angered her. As an adult she reaches out to people no matter how mean or rude they are to her, always believing there is some way to get along. But I do admit to being disappointed that her writing talent never amounted to anything.
