History behind the house - who is Shakespeare – and why is he a good role model?
William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He is arguably the most famous British writer to have ever lived with his plays and books still being watched, read and studied today all around the world. He possessed qualities, such as open mindedness, being hardworking, optimistic, and passionate. Arguably his best trait was his creativity as he could take something so small and turn it in to something big and amazing! He is a great role model because he has inspired others through his hard work and amazing imagination and his life as impacted so many different people and continues to do so.
