1. First things first, Rey kicks ass. She speaks a bunch of languages, she survives on her own in brutal Jakku and she wields a lightsaber like a pro.

 

2. The actress who played Rey, Daisy Ridley, regularly shared inspiring videos of her badass training on social media.

3. Basically, Rey gives the phrase "You Fight Like A Girl" a whole new (and positive) meaning

4. She's crazy inspiring. For example, she inspires amazing fan art
