Emma Watson By Erin knauf

Emma Watson is a British actor, author, and activist. At the age of 10, Emma had gotten herself a role as Hermione Granger in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'. Emma originally did not want the part when they were casting, but her classmate said she would be great as Hermione. Watson ended up getting the role!

Emma Watson ended up doing all eight Harry Potter movies, even though she did not want to stay for the seventh and eighth movies.

Before she had ended the Harry Potter franchise, Watson enrolled to Brown University in 2009. In 2011, she filmed the rest of the harry Potter movies. When Emma went to collage, she decided that she wasn't going to let anybody act like she was special compared to other students. Emma says, "On the first day, I walked in the canteen and everybody went completely silent and turned to look at me. I'd say to myself, 'It's okay, you can do this.you just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage." in May, 2014, Watson graduated Brown University which a bachelor's degree in English literature. Expecto Diploma!

Just after Emma graduated Brown University, on July 8th 2014, Watson was nominated as the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. She promotes gender equality and empowerment of women. Watson also wants education for girls in Africa, and promotes everybody getting a secondary education. She was given multiple speeches to the UN (United Nations) about how important gender equality is. She says that nobody should be afraid to speak up about how women get paid less than men. Watson has hopes that people will reach out and solve this problem soon.
