My biography is about a first lady. Can you guess who? If you said Eleanor Roosevelt, you were right! She was born in New York on October 11, 1884. Her father was Elliot Roosevelt. Her mother's was Anna Hall. Her family said she was ugly but that was wrong. She fell in love with Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He became the president of the United States of America. Eleanor was famous for working for the poor people and minorities. She made many speeces around the United States. She died in 1962.
