My hero is Adi Roche. I found her while I was surfing on the internet. Adi Roche is a campaigner for peace, humanitarian aid and education, who has focused on the relief of suffering experienced by children in the wake of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. She is the chief executive of Irish-based Chernobyl Children International and in November 2010 received the Health Award at the World of Children Awards ceremony and the 2015 World of Children Alumni Award. Also in 2015, she won the Princess Grace Humanitarian Award from Prince Albert Of Monaco & the Ireland Fund. She is important to me because she cares for other people and wants to make the world a better place.
