What effects has JK Rowling made on the world?
These qualities illustrate the keys to JK's success. She was shy enough to never ask for a pencil, so she could just sit and think of a plotline. She is quiet, and she thinks before she talks, which gave her an iiimense vocabulary. JK followed her role model, Jessica Mitford who was very independent. JK grew up wanting to be just like her. JK kept her grades high so she could be anything in life. She is kind, contributing to charities, and believes in philanthropy. She is stubborn, never giving up her dream of becoming a writer.
