an All American Icon, a Hero, and a Legend.
How do you see Marilyn Monroe? A fake? A whore? An inspiration, or even a hero? How much do you really know about her?
First lets start with some background information. Marilyn Monroe’s birth name is Norma Jean Baker, She is most known for being a major sex symbol, an actress, singer, and model. Why do I think she’s heroic? Above everything, her childhood was a nightmare, and she was still a very strong woman, but ill get to that later.
Marilyn Monroe is a genuinely strong, independent, beautiful women who had to withstand more than most, and she still smiled and didn't let that affect her and she didn't let anything affect who she was. She was true to herself despite people judging her, she lived her life how she wanted, which is how we should all live, laidback not worrying about what others think, as long as it makes you happy do what you want, afterall you only live once!
Marilyn Monroe was born in L.A. on June first in 1926(Yvonne). Her mother, Gladys Pearl Baker was born May, twenty seventh, 1902. Gladys was twenty four when Marilyn Monroe was born. Marilyn's Father Who's still unclear, but we think her father is Edward Mortensen was born February, twenty sixth, 1897. Edward was twenty nine when Marilyn Monroe was born.

She tried to tell but she was punished for “lying”. Monroe would cry at night and have nervous breakdowns. When she went to her Aunt’s house to live, one of her sons abused Marilyn Monroe, and when she was two years old she was nearly smothered to death. Monroe had a very rough childhood and she never truly had a home as a child, she kept moving all over the place.
Some of the jobs Marilyn Monroe had when she was nine the orphanage gave her ten sense a month for working in the kitchen and then would take a penny every Sunday for church. At age sixteen, she worked in an aircraft plant with her twenty one year old husband which she divorced four years later. But when he went into the marines she became a model, and at...
