Meet Audrey Hepburn as a young girl!
Little Audrey Hepburn ice skating in Holland
As a child, Audrey Hepburn’s family moved to Holland, which is called the Netherlands today. In the winter, everything froze and she loved to ice skate to school. Ice skating was like dancing, and her dream was to become a ballerina.
Little Audrey Hepburn during the Occupation
Did you know that Audrey Hepburn lived through World War II when she was growing up? Audrey would carry secret notes across town for the Resistance, hidden in her shoes so enemy soldiers wouldn’t find them.
Little Audrey Hepburn reading and daydreaming
Audrey Hepburn would spends hours in bed reading. She missed her life before the war. She missed skating with her friends and going to school. She would daydream about the days to come…
Daydreams do come true
One day, Audrey Hepburn did become a famous star! At the height of her fame, Audrey decided to leave acting behind so she could spend more time with her children. After her two little boys grew up, she spent the rest of her life helping children all over the word. Being a movie star was fun, but caring for children is much nicer.
