This chapter will offer an analysis of how the misfortunes Audrey Hepburn endured in her youth eventually led her to become a humanitarian hero. Although Hepburn is best known as the leading woman in movies such as Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, she eventually cast aside the spoils of her fame in order to pursue humanitarian work for the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF). The work she did to help disadvantaged children in underdeveloped countries elevated her to the status of hero. The story of her transformation is a fascinating one that spans her entire lifespan.
