Sunday marks the 28th birthday of Harry Potter star Emma Watson. While we still use ‘Harry Potter’ quite heavily to introduce her every time, it is definitely not the only thing she is known for any more.

A UN ambassador, a world-renowned feminist, a talented actor and a Disney princess, Emma has made her position strong and has become one of the most admired women in the world. Women want to be like her and men want someone just like her in their lives. She is sweet, intelligent, empathetic, funny and just so cute.

So on her birthday, here are 10 reasons why we believe Emma is the perfect girlfriend for anyone and everyone.

1. She knows what she likes in men and what she doesn’t

Hint: Flip-flops are a strict no!

2. She likes bad boys (in a Tom Felton kinda way, not in a Draco Malfoy kinda way)

Draco Malfoys of the world get punched in the face.

3. She is amazing with kids

Your younger sister/brother would love her.

4. She loves animals just as much as you

People who love animals are always good people.

5. She knows the true definition of feminism

She knows feminism isn’t about hating men and neither is it yet another guideline for judging women. It’s about equality and about freedom and Emma knows it.

6. She can be the perfect dancer

She is not about that pitch-perfect dancing. Emma loves to be goofy on the dance floor, just like you.

7. She knows how to fend off the haters

Emma will knock the living daylights out of anyone who messes with her. She doesn’t need your help.

8. She knows how to clean up good

Of course, the Yule Ball should have given us a hint

9. She loves to read

Emma will always have the best book suggestions for you. She runs a book club for God’s sake.

10. She is just a great, kind person

I had the most amazing day in Malawi today. Thank you President Mutharika for being a #HeForShe Impact Champion and for making gender equality a priority in your Government! Thank you to all the traditional leaders who are implementing President Mutharika's policies - especially Chief Kachindamoto (she’s in the photo with me, she’s formidable and has been nicknamed "The Terminator"!). She gave me such a warm welcome today. She has implemented the annulment of so many child marriages and restored the futures of these girls. With the help and collaboration of her local chiefs, mothers’ groups and religious leaders she has managed to annul almost 1500 child marriages, sending the girls back to school. President Mutharika has committed to make child marriage a thing of the past in Malawi within the next five years. It was amazing to be on the ground with @UNWomen and Chief Kachindamoto to witness their work! My @tomenyc white shirt is made from organic cotton and is part of their 'White Shirt Project’ campaign. The project was conceived in 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Freedom for All charity, which is fighting human trafficking and modern day slavery. The silk skirt is by @zady. Zady partnered with @cocccon_prakesh, founded in 2012 by Chandra Prakash Jha, a fashion designer who wanted to help his community through fairer wages and a safer, more sustainable process. Instead of using toxic pesticides on the plants that the silkworm caterpillars eat, the farmers protect the trees by covering them with mosquito nets to protect the leaves from harmful birds and insects. Then the silk is brought to New York where expert sewers in New York’s famed Garment District create each piece. Sandals by @nisoloshoes. The sandals were made by a team of expert shoemakers in Trujillo, Peru in a factory owned and operated by Nisolo that celebrates fair trade wages, safe working conditions, healthcare for all employees, and financial literacy & wellness training.
