Although Madam Walker had little to value, and not enough to be around, she managed to have what others didn’t, a successful business that reached many places. Madam Walker displays a lesson that everyone should follow; if you stumble upon a problem and can’t find a solution, look to see what you have in your surroundings and you will find your answer after doing the necessary and effective work. I admire Madam Walker very much and is now my role model because of her optimism and that she doesn’t give up on anything easily.

As Madam Walker cared for others, it shows that she was a worthy woman to do great things.

Walker’s urgent calling to immediately end slavery, no matter the means, suggest that he understands the value of each individual, even slaves.

With determination, the shy, fearful girl with a tough childhood chose her own path in life and got to where she was known today, as a heroic person who did extraordinary, positive deeds for humanity.
