I found this page to be very useful for when I was adding interesting facts to my speech and learning center. It gives you information on less important ideas for why she is eminent and more information about the filler stuff so that my speech had varying levels of information. Letting it range from heavily important information to the information I add between the important parts. In addition it did also give me some of the same information I already had, confirming that the prior information was true.

I used this web page the most for gaining information about J.K. Rowling’s childhood. They include so many aspects of her as a child and before she was famous. Going into great detail about the process of her becoming eminent was what I was looking for and they had it.

Not only that but this website contains some good quotes from her and is good for learning about Institutionalization and how it’s bad.
