Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is one of the biggest names in television, and a billionaire, and guess what - she's also a lefty! She has faced many adversities in her life, but now she's signing on autographs and owns her network!

Prince William

Royal lefty Prince William is in line for the throne of England, and apart from being left-handed, has set himself apart from other royals by excelling in charitable work and joining the air force.

Kate Hudson

Actress Kate Hudson (you may know her from Season 4 of Glee, or the movies How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Almost Famous) is left-handed, just like her famous mom Goldie Hawn.

Barack Obama

Being left-handed used to be something that could hold people back (we're talking like, the Middle Ages), but not anymore! U.S. President Barack Obama, otherwise known as the leader of the free world, is a lefty.

Marilyn Monroe

Little known to most of her fans, iconic movie actress Marilyn Monroe was also left-handed. Marilyn defined what it was to be a movie star and inspires all kinds of people even today.

Michaelangelo

One of the greatest artists in history and famous for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in The Vatican, Michaelangelo knew a thing or two about hands (left ones that is.) The fingers touching is one of the most famous part of any work of art ever made (up there with The Mona Lisa's unforgettable smile.)

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
