@shannonl5 This is one of my cards for ladies week. Note: May be spoilers so if you are waiting to watch Yona of the Dawn I'll try not to give huge spoilers but there may be some.
Yona is a fifteen year old princess who has led an extremely sheltered life.... until the night of her sixteenth birthday when everything is taken from her....
Her protector (Hak) saved her life and they ran. They were hunted and Yona was forced to either fight or die. With what had happened to her you couldn't have blamed her for wanting death, but she chose to live and fight to get back the kingdom that was taken from her. So starts her journey.
She's extremely fragile but she remains positive and learns to use a bow as she searches for the people who will become her guardians and friends. It's not easy for her to learn the bow, she was never allowed to hold a weapon before and it's exhausting and painful for her but she stays up and practices late into the nights.
She is forced to learn that the country she thought was perfect was actually filled with crime and suffering. She fights for justice with a terrifying determination though she is still not very strong. She places herself in the line of danger for the people in her kingdom.
I personally like characters who aren't born strong but they fight to be so. Everyone has weaknesses and it's not fair to hold us to standards where powerful women are just born that way. You can be strong and be "imperfect."
