In Jennifer’s role Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movie series, she inspires people of all ages to stand up for what they believe in. Jennifer is also very inspiring herself. In Hollywood she is considered obese because she is not as skinny as other actresses. Jennifer does not care though. She said that she doesn’t want to not eat. She didn’t want girls to say “I want to be skinny like Katniss.” Or “I wish I was as skinny as Jennifer Lawrence.” I find Jennifer very influential because she is a great actress and an amazing role model. Jennifer played one of my favorite characters, Katniss Everdeen. She taught me that if I can dream it, I can achieve it. I want to be like Jennifer when I grow up. She doesn’t care what people think of her.
