Audrey Hepburn

Born May 4, 1929 in Belgium, Audrey Hepburn lived a privileged life, her father a banker, and her mother, a Dutch baroness. Audrey lived through the difficulties of World War 2 while she and her mother lived in London after Hitler ransacked the city. After the war, she attended ballet school on scholarship which led to a career as a model.
She was discovered by a producer in 1948 in Europe. Without much success, she later went to America to find a more receptive audience. In 1953, her first movie for an American company was “Roman Holiday”. It not only brought her fame, she won an Oscar for Best Actress.
It wasn’t just her beauty that made her attractive to people, she had a wit, a sense of compassion, and great intelligence. After her final movie and before her death in 1993, Audrey Hepburn worked closely with UNICEF as the “goodwill ambassador.” She dedicated what remained of her life in helping children of some of the world’s poorest nations.
