    Is it correct...?

    Hi everyone, this is my first question here of many to come.
    I'm writing an essay on what character do we feel identified with from a movie we saw in class.
    I feel I'm making a mistake here, is it correct to say:
    "...besides of feeling identified with the Queen I would also like to be like her"
    or should I say: " I do not only feel identified with her but also..."

    I would really appreciate your answers.

    No need for the word "of"

    "...besides feeling identified with the Queen, I would also like to be like her"

    By the way, wanting to be like her IS being identified with her.

    Thank you .
    Ps. Maybe I'm not being clear, but I feel identified with A PART of her and I would also like to be like the other part ( because I think that feeling identified with her doesnt necessarily mean that I AM completely like her, for me it means I agree with her in some things)
    Maybe I should be more specific and say that I feel idientified with some characteristics of her.

    (Sorry about my enlgish, I'm still learning :P)

    The verb is identify.

    I identify with you.
    I identified with you
    I have identified with her.
