Katniss Everdeen, a courageous, beautiful and talented young women that could have the world at her fingertips. She lives in the future where hope is hard to come by along with many other things such as food, water, and a home. The district she lives in, district 12, is what is referred to as a dystopian society. Every year a boy and a girls name (12-18 years old), from every district, is drawn to participate in the hunger games where they will fight to death and one will be left to be named victorious. Being the stand up lady she is she takes her sisters place so she does not have to participate. Katniss lives in a time where everything is challenging, people look up to her, and everyone is watching her every move. Michelle shares much of the same qualities as Katniss does.
Michelle Obama, the first lady, is highly intelligent and incredibly influential. Her husband was elected president and from that point forward she has been an outstanding first lady. Her duties in her position require much more than what meets the eye. She has to be on her toes, alert, witty, a role model and many other things to be considered a successful first lady. Throughout the past 4 years seeing Michelle Obama work as the first lady has been a joy and watching her work harder and harder everyday has been inspirational. Michelle Obama and Katniss Everdeen share a courageous, inspirational spirit that light up the room they stand in.
Whether real or fictional; people have to have someone to look up to. Katniss may not live in the actual world that we do today, but it is a matter of symbolism and how the message of her character can relate to real life. Role models and representing something greater is very important. Michelle Obama is a real life example of an extraordinary role model. She has shown young women and men all over the world how to live an outstanding life. Katniss and Michelle share an incredible amount of great characteristics. It just goes to show that a person does not need to be real to relate to them.
Katniss Everdeen and Michelle Obama may come from two completely different worlds, but they can relate to one another on an entirely different level. These two outstanding characters shine among many and prove to others that they are amazing role models. Katniss lives in a post apocalyptic world while Michelle does not, they are parallel in a sense that each of their worlds are cut throat. Whether they fight to their death, or fight for their country both of these young women are strivers and amazing citizens.
