Inspiration is exactly what I got from owning my very first PlayStation when I was eight years old. I immediately fell in love with Tomb Raider and Lara Croft. She was beautiful, smart, athletic, and adventurous. Lara was the face of a strong female protagonist back then. I looked up to her and wanted to be just like her when I grew up. Female protagonists inspire young girls and women to be their best selves and to have confidence that they can do anything. I could never forget Lara's adventure because she was a woman with so much courage, and I couldn't have felt that way if the protagonist were a male.
