The most recent brief at university was to choose a hero, someone you admired and deserved recognition for what they have done and achieved in their lifetime. For my person I decided to look at Irena sendler. She is one of the most courageous women I have heard or read about and her tale was very heart-warming.  She saved many Jewish children in her lifetime from the Polish "ghetto" Warsaw. She was captured and tortured by the Nazis but still she did not give up those children's names. She hid their names in glass jars in her backyard hoping to one day reunite them with thier parents. I found this project very interesting, especially having to depict the life of someone so brave.
