AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle has proven that she is beautiful inside and out. Before Meghan was famous for her humanitarian work and kind heart, she helped her former high school classmate Michelle Fanara through a hard time via a handwritten letter. The piece of paper, which was shared by the friend after almost 20 years, revealed the former actress' true caring nature.
Michelle said that Meghan supported her when her great-aunt died during a senior year at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles. "Dear Michelle, You are so strong and so wonderful," the friend read Meghan's first lines out loud in an interview with Inside Edition as she showed the letter. "I'm here if you ever need me. I love you, Meghan."
"Never stop sharing your beautiful spirit and always remember how special you are," Meghan wrote on the letter, encouraging her friend. The former classmate admitted that it made her "feel a little bit more special" because they're not even close friends, yet Meghan still cared enough to write her a letter.
"She's kind of made me feel a little bit more special, because she didn't have to write me a letter, but she did," the friend said. "To have someone reach out that's not in your circle of friends...and say, 'Hey, if you ever need anything, I am here for you,' that is pretty special," she added.
Michelle, who is now a martial arts instructor, told the site that she and Meghan met during a class trip in 1990. "I wanted to retreat into my own shell, and Meghan was like, 'No, no, no, you can't do that,' and she kept kind of pulling me out of my shell," she recalled.
The two became pen pals after the trip and Michelle kept the precious letter in her high school year book.
