J.K. Rowling has posted plenty of inspirational messages on Twitter. Just last month, she defended Serena Williams when body-shamers slammed the tennis star. And more recently, she took to social media to offer advice to an aspiring writer.

On August 16, Rowling sent "big hugs" to a 16-year-old Egyptian girl and "Potterhead," who tweeted that the "Harry Potter" author's work inspired her to write. She explained to Rowling that, in Egypt, girls have less freedom than boys to explore their interests. In fact, she's even been laughed at when revealing her plan to be a writer.

Rowling immediately responded to her young fan with a sweet message that will resonate with anyone who's ever had a dream.

The teen couldn't believe she got a response from the author. She thanked Rowling, whom she addressed as "the Queen," for encouraging her.

Since that tweet, the 16-year-old has received many other motivational messages offering support.
