Jane Austen is my hero because she is a writer, a writer who inspires me. Not only was she a good writer, she was a female writer at a time when females weren't allowed to have ideas, let alone write. Jane Austen didn't have to hide who she was to get published; her work was just that good. She has shown me that if you persevere and keep going, you can do anything you want to.

She became successful in her career - arthritis research. She chose this field to try to help find a way to cure arthritis so that future generations will not have to suffer from this problem.
