Every generation has its archetypes. There is the hero, the ingenue, the it-girl, etc., etc.

It’s not often that one generation’s starlet encompasses everything an icon can be. Our generation has been #blessed with the culmination of each of these and she is a hippo. Her name is Fiona and she resides on a throne in the Cincinnati Zoo, which isn’t exactly well-known for its proper treatment of animals. Consider Fiona its (and our) savior.

Fiona was born premature, a rare breed who wasn’t expected to survive. Despite the odds, Fiona didn’t just survive, she thrived.

Now we’re all lucky to have Fiona in our lives as a wise, sage being, a princess, a success story and the sister we’ve always wanted. Fiona is pure, positive and kind.

It’s not hard to feel for Fiona and empathize with her on a level that can only be described as instinctual. Here are 10 times we felt with Fiona. As you read, please play Mariah Carey‘s “Hero” softly in the background.
