Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an inspiration to me and her life is an example for our world to follow. I started to research her when I was eight years old. I was astonished to see all she did in her life, even though she had to fight for every opportunity. People underestimated her because she was a woman.
She was a trailblazer.
Ever since I started learning about RBG I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. I saw the way she used law to make a difference, to support, and fights for people. She knew what it was like to be held back and treated like she wasn’t equal. RBG wanted to fight so others didn’t have to be. She didn’t do it for money or fame. She did it for equality and justice. In her first case she said that the client did not have to pay her, she would just do it for free.
She never backed down from a fight she saw was fair and just; no matter how long that took or how hard it was. RGB fought for not just for herself but for everyone; black, white, women and men, no matter their religion or background. She wanted to have justice and equality for all. RBG wanted the world to be a better place and she was going to fight for that. I will follow that example. I am part of her legacy.
RBG is still with us. We will feel her as we stand up for people who are not treated equally. We will remember her example when we help others have opportunities. We will stand together as one. That is what RBG wanted.
