Hey Jess, what are you reading?
Oh, it's an article on Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. Did you know that she was an actress, writer and launched her own lifestyle brand?
Interesting! I knew she was on Suits, but I didn't know she was a writer.
Yes, acting was her day job but she wrote a lot about beauty, self-empowerment and racial identity.
Fasting. Yes, as a mixed-race actress, she must have had her fair share of adversity both in life and on the job.
Absolutely. And I think it's motivated her to be a women's advocate and a humanitarian.
Makes sense. But how did this whole whirlwind romance with Harry start?
Apparently, a mutual friend set them up and it was a match made in heaven.
That's sweet. I've never really followed the royals much, but they seem like a more progressive generation.
For sure. I also love her elegant and approachable style. She's authentic and down-to-earth.

Fair share of something
In today's dialogue, the phrase "had her fair share of adversity" meant that the individual had experienced enough or more than enough of something bad. However, this experience is not always negative and can be followed by positive nouns such as adventure and success.
在今天的对话中，短语“had her fair share of adversity”意思是这个人已经经历了足够或更多的不幸。然而，这种经历并不总是消极的，它后面可以跟一些积极的名词，如冒险和成功。
In terms of usage, the phrase does have some flexibility. The word "fair" can be dropped and the verb "have" can be substituted with “experience,” “encounter” or “make.”
1: He's certainly experienced more than his fair share of heartbreak.
2: I've made my share of mistakes, but I've learned from them and changed.
