Day 6:  Favorite Heroine

Esmeralda from Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

I was 7 when this movie released, and all I can remember was how I always tried to dance around like this woman. But that’s not the point. As I grew up I realized Esmeralda wasn’t just the pretty, graceful dancing gypsy lady. She had a huge heart, and wanted nothing more than for her people (her fellow gypsies) to be able to live amongst the people in France rather than have to hide away underground in the Court of Miracles. She didn’t love Quasimodo, but she was able to look past appearance, and accepted him for his personality (something there needs to be more of even in the world today) and thus befriended him. She stood up for Quasi and the other gypsies, nearly losing her life for their sake; I wish there were more people in the world like this.
