Transcript of Angela Merkel
Angela Dorothea Kasner was born in July 14, 1954 in Hamburg, West Germany.
She is the older of a family of 3 children and she is daughter of a Lutheran pastor.
She grew in a small town that is 50 miles north form Berlin, when Germany was called German Democratic Republic.
In 1977, Angela Kasner married physicist Ulrich Merkel, and therefore she is called Angela Merkel. She divorced in 1982, but kept the name. She remarried Joachim Sauer, a chemist from Berlin. She is still with him today.

Relation to Me
Angela Merkel and me in the first sight and without any deep analysis, we seem not to have anything in common. But after, I saw all her life, I conclude that one aspect in which we are similar is that we enjoy sciences as well of being logic and straight forward. Another thing is that both of us are really persistent, and we never give up at the first time. We try several times and if it doesn't help, we find out why and solve the problem from where it began.
Angela Merkel has been an example not just for german but for all women in the world. She promotes the empowerment of women with her example and makes sure that we all understand we have a voice. She also has shown that discipline is fundamental to achieve our goals and that we can do everything we propose to do.
Analyzing specially Angela Merkel in certain aspects have made me develop a different perspective from the one I had before. Now I'm capable of taking bigger decisions and have a great example to show how I can do everything I want to do. I'm also proud of myself for my discipline and have learned that it is fundamental for my future.
