Which 19th Century Pioneer Woman Are You?
You could have been Laura Ingalls-Wilder in a past life. Like her, you're a gifted writer, with a strong sense of right and wrong. You're a fierce optimist who refuses to be defeated by life's demons, and nothing outweighs your love for family.
You could've been Annie Oakley in a past life. Like the famous sharpshooter, you have an awesome androgynous style and a thirst for rebellion. Your street-smarts may make you appear resigned or aloof, but you are nothing if not a survivor.
You could've been Marie Curie in a past life. Like the famous physicist, you're intelligent, practical and somewhat conservative but this does not stop you from dreaming and philosophizing. You value work over family life, and you remain undeterred by the obstacles that you face as a woman.
You could have been Mary Shelley, the grandmother of Gothic and post-apocalyptic literature. Like Mary, you're not afraid to address major political issues and challenge societal norms. Some may call you slightly morbid, but your tenacity and versatility certainly earn you a lot of popularity.
You could've been Virginia Woolf, acclaimed writer and innovator of the English language. You possess deep intelligence and progressive ideology, that may often alienate you from your peers. You can be a little bit of a loner with a preference for few close companions.
You could've been Helen Keller, a deaf-blind author and lecturer, in a past life. You've faced many personal obstacles, which have in turn made you stronger and more opinionated. You refuse to be made into a pessimist despite lifelong struggles, and you dream of a better tomorrow.
You could have been Florence Foster-Jenkins, a notoriously terrible operatic singer, in a past life. You may have more confidence than talent, but that can be an admirable trait. Just remember to tell yourself that people are laughing with you, not at you!
You could have been Nellie Bly, a talented journalist, ruthless spy, and traveler in a past life. People often underestimate your abilities which makes it that much more triumphant when you prove them wrong. Like Nellie, you can do anything you set your mind to - whether it's convincing mental asylums you're certifiably insane or travelling the world in a record-breaking 72 days - you can do it all!
You could have been Jessie Tarbox Beals, a pioneering photojournalist, in a past life. Like Beals, your precocious and curious nature is one of your major assets, and your strength of will means you can work in high-pressure, physically demanding environments. You have advanced observational skills, with the power to see what other people may miss.
