We have chosen three examples of successful women who have managed to overcome difficult situations through their careers. It is not easy to reveal these kinds of intimacies, especially when you're going to be judged by millions. Here are three tough life stories with a happy ending.
1- Lady Gaga: The brilliant singer has managed to inspire and excite throughout her career, but she also had a difficult past. Gaga revealed some time ago that she suffered abuse when she was 19 years old at the school where she studied. In fact the song "Swine" talks about it. Through singing, she managed to heal and overcome what she experienced.
2- Julie Andrews: She was known and acclaimed for her role in "The Sound of Music" due to Andrew's beautiful voice. After going through a simple throat operation, she lost her singing skills and that got her close to depression, but Andrews got ahead of it by writing children's stories with her daughter Emma. Together they wrote a total of 31 books and the actress moved on.
3- Ellen Pompeo: Also known as Meredith Gray, her role in Gey's Anatomy. The series, which premieres its 16th season on Netflix, has allowed us to see the evolution of this actress over 20 years.
Ellen didn't have an easy childhood, she lost her mother at the age of 5 and ended up being raised by her grandmother along with her four siblings. Her father never allowed her to express herself about what happened and that was something that marked her and haunted her throughout her life. Fortunately, acting was a way of getting over it.
