Audrey Hepburn was educated at Miss Rigden's School, from 1935 to 1938 as an independent girls' school in the village of Elham, Kent, in the southeast of England.She was a renowned British actress and humanitarian. Although modest about her acting ability, she had remained one of the world's most famous actresses of all time, remembered as a film and fashion icon of the twentieth century. She was inducted in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame, and ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema.She had spent her childhood chiefly in the Netherlands, including German-occupied Arnhem during the Second World War. In Arnhem, she studied ballet before moving to London in 1948 where she continued to train in ballet while working as a photographer's model. Upon deciding to pursue a career in acting, she performed as a chorus girl in various West End musical theatre productions. After appearing in several British films and starring in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi, Hepburn gained instant Hollywood stardom for playing the Academy Award-winning lead female role in Roman Holiday (1953). Later performing in Sabrina (1954), The Nun's Story (1959), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964) and Wait Until Dark (1967) .She had become one of the great screen actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age who received nominations for Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs as well as winning a Tony Award for her theatrical performance in the 1954 Broadway play Ondine. Hepburn remains one of few entertainers who have won Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.As she had spent her later life to UNICEF, her war-time struggles inspired her passion for humanitarian work and, although she had contributed to the organization since the 1950s, she worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of Africa, South America and Asia in the late eighties and early nineties. In 1992, Hepburn was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. At the age of sixty three, Hepburn died of appendicle cancer at her home in Switzerland on January 20, 1993. On her passing away, the world as whole and Britain in particular mourned her death as if we had lost one of our most distinguished daughter of our universe whose sincerity, hard work, social activities and devotion will be remembered and cherished for ever.
