I see the hero in many people for different reasons. Growing up my mom was always my biggest hero. I admire my sister for being such a wonderful parent at a young age. My dad has taught me that compassion for others may be the greatest personality trait anyone can possess. His father was an inspiration to always go after your dreams as if they would come true, regarless of how crazy they may seem. My mom's parents have more faith in a single hair on their heads, than perhaps even the last 10 Popes combined. These people have been my heros for as long as I can remember. My boyfriend, Mikael, has become my biggest hero and best inspiration. He has taught me that everything that I am is exactly what I should be, until I decide otherwise. He has given me an unconditional love that I didn't know could exist. He has helped me see myself as a hero for myself.
