Anne Frank was an inspiration to the world. We have met her throughout her book The Diary of Anne Frank and seen her as a teacher. Anne Frank has been a teacher by showing the world how she overcame her problems. She has helped me to improve to know others. The most important lesson Anne Frank has taught me is to always be optimistic in any situation. Anne Frank has coached the world her solutions and themes.

Anne Frank is known to be a teacher to the world from many examples from her book. For example, “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Anne Frank explains that even antagonistic people have a good heart. Other people believe that bad people have no goodness into them, but Anne Frank teaches even people with evil can be good hearted.

She rather be close to her as a mother to respect her ideas. Then, Anne writes, “I'm honest and tell people right to their faces what I think, even when it's not very flattering. I want to be honest; I think it gets you further and also makes you feel better about yourself.” She explains that she doesn't want to live with guilt and feel ashamed. She wants a true and clean relationship with everyone she knows. Finally, an example is, “I want friends, not admirers. People who respect me for my character and my deeds, not my flattering smile. The circle around me would be much smaller, but what does that matter, as long as they're sincere?” Anne Frank says that she wants
