"No one can make you feel inferior wihtout your consent."

Eleanor redefined what it meant to be a First Lady. She always cared for others, and she dedicated her life to helping people. She volunteered with many organizations such as the Red Cross, and she taught children history and literature. She was a role model to any woman who wanted to be independent. She was very down to earth and was always ready for a service opportunity.
