Grace Kelly 1929-1982

"I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others." 

Many people my age know Grace Kelly for her iconic beauty, acting career or infamous royal wedding. Few  know how intelligent, witty and articulate she was.

Grace passed away a few years before I was born but I recently watched the last interview she gave (two months prior to her untimely death) to Pierre Salinger. She wasn't in her prime physically speaking but nevertheless she was still beautiful. What surprised me most was how mesmerized I was by her demeanor, voice and intellect. It was evident that she was a very interesting person with a unique perspective on the world.

I appreciate people who are true individuals. Grace Kelly was this.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
