Scholar of the Month: Hermione Granger
Hermione Granger is a BAWSE.
Well, she's such an integral figure to the study community that I hardly think she needs introduction, but let's run it down:
Hermione was able to solve the potion logic puzzle to get Harry to the Philosopher's Stone when she was ELEVEN YEARS OLD.
She was able to successfully brew a Polyjuice Potion at 12.
She figured out that Professor Lupin was a werewolf before anyone even noticed something was off, but she's such a cool person that she didn't tell a soul about it.
Hermione Granger pretty much single-handedly got Harry through the Triwizard Tournament alive, while at the same time protecting both of them by figuring out Rita Skeeter's secret.
She had the forethought to Summon all of the horcrux books from Dumbledore's office while everyone (herself included) was still in shock and mourning.
Hermione also had the forethought to pack everything the trio needed for their wanderings weeks early, and carried it around with her so that they could leave at a moment's notice.
But most importantly of all, Hermione alone out of all three of the main characters returned to Hogwarts after the battle to finish her seventh year and take her N.E.W.T.s, something she absolutely did not have to do. Hermione is such a boss that instead of taking the easy way out and just entering the workforce, where she could have gotten nearly any job she wanted, and instead going back to school for a test that it literally described as "nastily exhausting". That's dedication, and I'm all about it.
