Before becoming a successful writer, Rowling was struggling to get by. In fact, after a short-lived marriage, Rolwing found herself jobless and penniless, writing Harry Potter on napkins at various cafes in Edinburgh, Scotland with her daughter Jessica by her side. Yet, through passion, perseverance and hard work, Rowling eventually found herself on the other side of things. She is now reportedly worth $95 million.

However, she'll never forget the path she took to get where she is today. Sharing her story of struggle and hardship, supporting charitable foundations and standing up for humanity, Rowling has positioned herself as a role model to all. Through empathy and understanding, she's imparted inspiration and strength to not only her Harry Potter fans, but to the rest of the world as well (just take a look at her Twitter account).
