Today's Challenge: Favorite Hero and Why

She-Ra Princess of Power

She-Ra Princess of Power was and still is my favorite super heroine. 

Her·o·ine ˈherəwən/noun - a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. 
Not to be confused with the commonly misspelled drug Heroin which is an opioid painkiller that is misused as a recreational drug for its euphoric effects.

I put the definitions in this post because I kept getting directed to the drug when trying to find the female hero. Sometimes being grammatically correct is annoying.

Beck to She-Ra the female hero HEROINE! 

She-Ra Princess of Power was my favorite heroine as a child. I had the nightgown, bedding, the figurine and her unicorn Swift Wind. 

As a little girl I thought she was cool because she had a unicorn and a sword. She fought with He-Man and was just as good as him and sometimes saved him. Growing up I began to realize she was more awesome because she was equal in strength to her brother He-man and was working to save her planet. She-Ra was intelligent and that awesome sword changed shape. The cheery on the cake...FLYING UNICORN!  I mean who wouldn't want their own Swift Wind!

The thing that I loved the most was that She-Ra was a "normal" girl who turned into a superhero. I mean what little girl isn't a princess right! As a girl in my household my father always made it clear there would never be special treatment towards me because I was a girl. If I wanted to do something the boys were doing I had to prove myself and I did.

I remember I was about 10 years old and we were at an uncles helping bale hay. The boys wanted to drive the tractors around the field. I asked if I could too. My dad replied "when you can pee standing up". Being determined to drive that tractor I stood in front of my dad and uncle, widen my feet and stood there looking my dad straight in the eye and peed on the ground. My dad was so astonished he laughed and I got to drive that tractor...however I also had to wear my pee scented shorts for the rest of the day. I did not think that through very well!

She-Ra showed me that girls were just as awesome if not more so than boys! 

Come back tomorrow and see what I am proud of from the past few days.
