Transcript of Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Kohler Hepburn grew up in a nazi-occupied Netherlands during WWII. Her father was a nazi sympathizer and abandoned her mother and her siblings when she was still very young and was able to overcome these hardships and live a happy life. Audrey Hepburn began taking dance classes after school and became very skilled. By 1944, Hepburn had become a proficient ballet dancer. She secretly danced for groups of people to collect money for the Dutch resistance. Audrey Hepburn was not only an award winning film actress/dancer and a survivor of WWII, she was also a humanitarian. She used her fame to help raise awareness and gain donations for UNICEF. May 04, 1929-January 20, 1993 Audrey Hepburn She appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF. Although contributing to the organization since 1954, she worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. Hepburn's legacy as an actress and a personality has endured long after her death. Along with receiving many awards during her career, The American Film Institute named Hepburn third among the Greatest Female Stars of All Time. Even in her last years, she remained a visible presence in the film world. Hepburn earned her place in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1961 but her reverence as a fashion icon has continued long since her death, proved by accruing the titles "most beautiful woman of all time" and "most beautiful woman of the 20th century" “The 'Third World' is a term I don't like very much, because we're all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering." -Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn devoted her life to inspiring and helping others and left behind a legacy full of kindheartedness, grace, and talent. Even after her passing, her family still continues to donate to UNICEF and other charities with the money she left behind. The hall of fame would be lucky to have her. "Despite her terrible, scarring childhood, my mother was able to overcome the memories and always have a smile on her face" (Ferrer, 30). "Audrey was always told she was too tall or that her neck was too long to be a good dancer. She practiced harder than any other student in her dance classes and was soon one of the top dancers" (Ferrer, 41). "My mother began to appear in fewer films once my brother and I were born and then she stopped. She began to focus all her time and efforts on raising us, and once we were adults, she helped children and adults that were less fortunate" (Ferrer, 120). "My mother was always very modest about being an icon. She never mentioned it and if it was mentioned to her she would compliment others who worked with her, even if she was the one with the awards" (Ferrer, 63). "My mother never understood why people enjoyed her style so much. She was dressing how she wanted to dress and it was suddenly know as "Audrey-style". SHe enjoyed clothes very much and loved trying out strange combinations" (Ferrer, 70).
