Which fairy tale do you most relate to?
It’s a tie between Cinderella and Brave.
Cinderella has always been a favorite of mine.
Like my sister, some think that Cinderella is just like one of those Disney Princesses who waits around for her Prince to save her. But I know she’s more than that.
She’s a very caring and kind person, despite how mean her Step-Family is mean to her. And she loves animals.
Sometimes my favorite Aunt Patty jokes around and says I’m like Cinderella.
And then I saw the 2012 movie Brave.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend it. I saw the movie first on cable tv. I’ve lost track how many times I’ve seen it. Brave is a Pixar movie (but also Disney because they bought Pixar).
There’s a good magical storyline that I really liked it. And I think it’s great that they had Merida go against her family’s traditions, because the movie was not like the traditional Princess movies.
I think Merida is the first Disney Princess that has gone against the norm of all the other Princesses. She doesn’t want to get married. She doesn’t want a Prince. She just wants to be free. And she loves riding her horse, and finding adventure. She is really good shooting with her bow and arrows.
And then there’s her mother, who seems to rule the kingdom, while the Father hunts, eats, and argues with the other men. The Mother and Merida were the only ones that was able to save the kingdom and break the curse of the bear.
I relate to these characters the most I guess because I do try to be kind to others (like Cinderella). And I love animals. And I am always ready for adventures (Merida). And I do make my own destiny. And I do try to try to be brave.
