She was the poor little rich girl who overcame huge obstacles to become the First Lady of the World. Orphaned at the age of nine, she took control of her own destiny, transforming herself from a shy, fearful girl into a strong, socially aware, confident woman. As the First Lady of the United States she took a ceremonial title and turned it into a platform to help others, then going even further to develop the magna carta of the modern age – the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In today’s Biographics, we examine the very busy life of Eleanor Roosevelt.
