Rose Fortune



ObstaclesObstacles that Rose Fortune had to face are things like moving from one place to another.Rose Fortune had to overcome the fact that she had moved away from the only life that she knew, and being placed in a completley different inviroment.These changes must not have been very hard to overcome because she and her family had run away from slavery and entered a free city.

Quote(I was not able to get a quote from Rose Fortune, but here is what someone semed to have said about her)"I was aided in my hasty efforts to quit the abominable inn by a curious old Negrop woman, rather stunted in growth...and dressed in a mans coat and felt hat. She had a small stick in her hand wich she applied lustily to the back of all who did not jump instantly out of her way."

Major eventsMajor events in Rose Fortunes life are when she escaped with her family from slavery, then only a few years later she started two buisnesses.The buisness she started were carrying luggage for people who needed to get home or to a nearby hotel. In her second buisness she alerted the people in the nearby hotels that the boat that they wanted to go on was leaving. I think that this was a major event in her life because when she started her buisnesses in Canada, she started her new life in Canada.

Failure is NOT an option
