Pavlova's achievements inspire others to reach for their own goals. In an interview conducted by Ellen Ersham, Anna Pavlova said, “From then on, all I thought of was dancing professionally. I knew that I could do it as long as I put in my best effort. And look at me today. That work must have really paid off” (Pavlova). The dancer set her mind on her goal and did not let her imperfectness stop her from reaching the dream she always hoped on fulfilling. "God gives talent. Work transforms talent into genius" (Pavlova). God gave Pavlova two talents. One talent she received was her ability to evolve her flaws into perfection. The second talent was her ability to portray dance in an unusual way. Pavlova combined these two talents and shaped her path to “genius”. Any obstacle thrown in Anna's path was overcome. She never let the audience doubt her abilities and gave her best performance every time. Anna's perseverance to never let anything get in between her and dance is something that will always be admired. A person who is worthy of the title hero should have the strength to embrace their flaws and always give their best effort in hopes to achieve greatness one day.
