• WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL HERO AND WHY? “My personal hero is my mom. She has influenced me my whole life and has helped to mold me into the person I am today. Through her, I have gained faith, become an involved member of society and learned the importance of my education. Although we may not see eye to eye a lot of the time, and there are certain things we will never be able to understand about each other, my mom will always be someone I look up to.”
