Her life story is so interesting and I just can't help but admire her for what she's done with her life. Definitely the right kind of role model (except for the crap she did in her formative years).
I'm a lover of fiction in all shapes and forms, but my first love is reading. Give me a good book and I can get completely sucked into that world. I'm a very emotional reader, and I often get attached to characters. It's not unusual to come across me laughing or crying while reading.
