A hero is a person who helps others in the way they think, act, and what they say. Everyone wants to become a hero but to become one, the person will have to defend their fellow people in which they will always be ready to take all the consequences to be a hero. “All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.”

Albert Einstein has made everyone open their eyes and ears to listen to his speeches and all the things he had to say. Albert Einstein accomplished many things. For an example, he received a Noble Prize in Physics. His skills made him an expert in science and math and he also taught in many Universities. Einstein received honorary degrees from many schools including Universities of Geneva, Zurich, and more. He received a Gold Medal and Royal Astronomical Society. Albert entered the world in Ulm, Germany, on March 14, 1879. Albert graduated with a teaching degree in 1900. He left Germany in 1933 with his family. Later on, he died in 1955. He immigrated to United States in 1933. Although his family was Jewish, Einstein was sent to a Catholic elementary school. Also was a naturalized citizen. He taught as a professor of physics in German University, Prague, Czechoslovakia then died in Princeton, New Jersey

Albert Einstein proved himself a hero because his bravery helped many people. “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” Also he sends the message that you can accomplish anything if you try something that you think is impossible to accomplish. Albert Einstein is considered as a hero because he opened up a gateway to new advances in the scientific world. Even though he moved to different places during his life, he accomplished far above his expectations. Einstein proves himself a hero to everyone, young or old, because he proves that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. But people don’t consider Einstein for just that reason. He wouldn’t be considered a hero if he hadn’t challenged his brain to think and prove others wrong in their beliefs that he was not intelligent. He is also known for making E=mc2. His discoveries proving the existence of molecules and light's particle were eclipsed by his Special Theory of Relativity. Albert Einstein ranks as one of the most remarkable theoreticians in the history of science. “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”

Albert Einstein, known most famously for being intelligent isn’t the real reason of his fame. However, what many people don’t know about is that his teachers thought he was stupid. “Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish.” Albert is an inspiration not only because he has achieved a Nobel Prize but for being a professor of physics and teaching at different Universities. "Einstein’s theory of relativity reconfigured notions of time, space, and matter that had been formulated by Isaac Newton in the seventeenth century." That is how Albert Einstein proves himself as a hero.
