The Humanitarian That Is Audrey Hepburn

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand you’ll find  them at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others” - Audrey Hepburn

Born as Audrey Kathleen Ruston on May 4. 1929. The woman behind “the little black dress”, the third screen legendary greatest female in the history of America, the woman who has the beauty inside and out, Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn is a legendary icon in the film industry of the United States, she devoted her life to create a legacy. Audrey sets standards in every  path she chooses, she makes sure that her devotions will create a path that will give help and advantage to other people.

Audrey Hepburn dedicate her life to help the poorest among the poor, she travels and visit the poor nations to extend a helping hands to the impoverished children. Her humanitarian work with UNICEF ends in the 1950’s, but this doesn’t stop her heart to help other people.

In 1988, she had gone out with her first field mission, she went to Ethiopia. The orphanage have 500 starving children broke her heart, because she can’t stand the idea that there are millions of people who are starving to death and many of them are childrens. The orphanage in Mek’ele is the place where part of essay samples about third world countries become famous “The Third World is a term I don’t like very much, because we’re all one world.”

“Anyone who doesn’t believe in miracles is not a realist”
