• WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL HERO AND WHY? “My dad is my personal hero. All my life he has inspired me to do well and be true to myself. He has impressed upon me the importance of values and good morals. He has instilled in me the importance of honesty; it may not be well received by some, but your beliefs and your thoughts should be your own. He taught me how to define my character as my own and to not necessarily be a follower but be an understanding leader; and that I should always set a good example.”
