My hero is very encouraging and helpful in school mainly during homework and band like drum major auditions etc. Although she has a large plate on her table with all the things she has to cover for our family she always manages time for us in her life. My mom cooks for our family, works, cleans and many more important duties that I couldn't live without. She can get stressed at times but that's mainly because my siblings and I cause trouble that she has to deal with. Even though things can happen I don't know what I would do without my mom in my life!

Telah Sprinkle from East Spencer, North Carolina, United States -
3/9/2019 1:26:57 AM
My hero is: Firefighter/Soldier Matt Hildebrant . This man is from a small town in North Carolina called Concord. He is the Captain at East Spencer Fire Dept. On Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3rd, 2019, this man became not only my hero bt a hero to my family as well. Around 12 pm I called 911 reporting that my son, who had severe medical conditions, was having trouble breathing. As I was suctioning his mouth and nose there were large amounts of blood, is oxygen level had hit as low as 27%. My son had lived for 21 months with these medical issues so I knew the procedures to take in a time like this until help arrived. He was requiring A LOT of breathing support. Within 15min, maybe not even that, of my call to 911 this man opens my door and yells "East Spencer Fire Department". I quickly motioned for him to head upstairs where I had my son laying flat on a small pillow. I began to tell him Dawson's medical history, list of medications, and the key events Dawson has or has had prior. As he takes his vitals he takes note on everything very attentively. This was the first time this particular Depart. had been to one of our calls because we had just moved into the area the week before. The EMS workers came in we rushed to the ambulance and to the nearest Hospital to stabilized and airlifted to the Hospital we were more familiar with, Levine Children's Hospital of Charlotte. After a 2-day fight in PICU, on Feb. 5th, my son lost his battle. That Friday, the day before my sons funeral I took 3 white roses to the Dept. as thanks and to invite them to his services the next day, which he and his partner both attended. This Captain and his crew have made a huge impact on our family, as he has dealt with similar issues in his own life as well. He has also been an open ear and gave tips on how to deal with PTSD. This Captain will forever hold a spot in my heart as he responded to my son's "Last Call".

My hero is: Ion Lazarenco Tiron.
A man from a small country made enormous effort in the name of peace. The person who I admire is a wonderful man who of course did something special, difficult and may be impossible for some of us. I heard about this great personality on the radio, about Ion Lazarenco Tiron. He was not a professional swimmer, he taught himself using the You tube, he didn’t have a trainer and had the smallest support team and budget, but in spite of them, he swam the seven most dangerous straits on the globe in the first attempt due to his power of mind. Ion Lazarenco Tiron was born on January 22-nd, 1978 in Braviceni, Orhei district, Republic of Moldova, living in his country he liked to swim in laces and rivers but was never dedicated to this kind of sport. In 1997 he moved to Ireland and worked as a bus drive, for 20 years he has been living there with his wife and two children. In 2011 being inspired by Nejib Belhedi, who swam the entire 1,400km of Tunisia’s coastline to build bridges of peace not only in Tunisia but in conflict zones around the world, likewise Tiron decided to swim the Dniester River to unite people in good and bad times. Another motivating factor for Ion was to raise money for orphans and children with disabilities in Moldova. It made Ion to pass the challenges, but for this he worked very hard, first off all to train himself he swam the ice mile in the Wicklow Mountains, after that he decided to swim across the Strait of Gibraltar, completing it in four hours and 41 minutes, English Channel in 13 hours and 34 minutes, the third swim in the challenge, making the journey across the North Channel between Northern Ireland and Scotland in 16 hours and 23 minutes. It was one of the most difficult of the Ocean’s Seven because of freezing water, unpredictable weather and Lion’s mane jellyfish. Next he swam from San Pedro in Los Angeles to Santa Catalina Island at midnight. In October 2016, Tiron swam the Molokai channel in Hawaii in 18 hours and 11 minutes. During the fifth swim, he tackled 25m waves, big swells and sharks while being stung by man o’ war jellyfish. In 2017, Ion took on the Tsugaru Strait before facing the final swim across the Cook Strait between the North and South Islands of New Zealand. In 2018, he completed the entire Oceans Seven challenge. He is the first person who have completed the challenge from Moldova, the second from Ireland and the eighth in the world. He is a brave person and a very kind one, because he donates a lot of things: clothes, shoes, toys and appliances for poor, disadvantaged children and elders. This fact captured and surprised me because there are a lot of people in all countries in the world who have much more money, but they think only about themselves, unfortunately… Ion Lazarenco Tiron is not the same, he is not very rich, so he took a credit to build a football field for children from his native village to awake their passion for sport. He is the person who keeps his promises, when he was swimming the seven most dangerous channels he promised that he’ll visit the most saint, Athos mountain, and he did it. He changes himself, his mind, his feelings, he was amazed of the fact that people don’t need a lot of things to be happy like the monks on the mountain, they don’t need a lot of food, they live with their faith and he tries to do the same. Ion Lazarenco Tiron is a great personality, a good example and a big inspiration for me and perhaps for others too.

Being the first time or 100th time, they still got me through a rough day. I'm hoping that Mr Lee's idea for teachers and entainers takes off. That would be great. I hope that this generation of children get to know of Stan Lee's writing and more. To know he is one of the greatest writers there were.

My hero is: Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro.
Cristiano Ronaldo was born in 5th february 1985. He is a Portuguese football player and since several years a buiseness man. This man who tells himself "The Machine" because of the quality to scored a lot of goals is a source of motivation for me because he is a generous and great person. He train hard during training session, he always arrives first and he always leaves the last at practice and always search to improve even if he is one of the best player in the world ! These performances prove this, he won 5 "France Football ballon d'or" (equality with Messi), one European Cup, 5 Champions League and he is the only player to win every individual trophies and every collective trophies and other... Outside the football Cristiano Ronaldo has created his brand "CR7" and holds many Hotels with Pestana Company, but he invests a lots in children's associations and the Isle where he was born, Madera to which he gives money to and contributes to their development.

My hero is: Fr Emil Blasser OP. Fr Emil Blasser is the founder of the only Catholic radio station in South Africa , namely Radio Veritas. He has worked under very difficult conditions in his quest to establish the radio station and to turn it into a viable entity.
Under the direction of Fr Emil , Radio Veritas has grown in popularity within South Africa and indeed beyond the borders of the country. For listeners in South Africa and the rest of the African continent , broadcast is via the Multichhoice DStv audio chanel 870. Beyond the African continent , there is 24 hour live-streaming on www.radioveritas.co.za .
My personal attitude of Fr Emil is that , very much like Pope St John Paul II and Mother Angelica ( the founder of the Alabama , USA-based Catholic station EWTN , he has always been prepared to bear immense suffering in the form of ill-health , ridicule , contempt and lack of support by affluent South Africans , with much humility and grace as he consistently strove to spread the good news of the Gospel . If ever one were to witness a saint in the making , one only needs to look in the direction of Fr Emil. I feel privileged that God has found me worthy to be in the company of this great priest and to count him as a spiritual director, a friend , a brother and an educator.
May God bless him richly for his service to the Church and to the people of South Africa.

My hero is: Mother Teresa.
My Hero By:Sugam A hero helps others, even if they get hurt themselves . They always persevere, despite what may bring them down. They believe in what is right. Finally, they are always courageous . My hero is Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa was born August 26, 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia. She died on September 5, 1997, in Kolkata, India. She got taught in India for 17 years. Additionally, her real name is Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. She had a dad, a mom, a brother, and a sister. She worked as a teacher, a missionary, and more. She also won the nobel peace prize in 1979. Mother Teresa was very helpful. She devoted her life for caring for the sickest and the poorest. But, this wasn’t that easy. She herself didn’t have a large amount of support, and she had even had to beg for food herself! But, she still didn’t give up. Suddenly, she got very sick since the last 2 decades of her life, but that didn't stop her for caring of the poor and sick. Mother Teresa believed in what is right. She quit her job as a teacher because she thought it was the right choice helping the helpless. She also thought god (Jesus) will think it is the right choice to help the helpless. She showed empathy in the people she was helping. She always was courageous, to. She always did her job even though she got sick, and she faced many challenges. Mother Teresa is a hero to me because she went through a lot doing the right thing. She made her life into helping others. She thought it was the right choice and worth it. Thank you for reading my hero essay.

My hero is: Helen Keller. I think that a hero is somebody who will do anything for somebody else. If they see a problem in the world, the try to solve it however they can. It might be as little as smiling at somebody who's has a rough day. But no matter what they do, a hero is perseveres and tries their best. A hero has a lot of courage and is humble. They make a difference in the world, most of the time without meaning to. They are smart, either with education or what is right. They have been in tough situations, and are dedicated to making them right. My hero is Helen Keller.
Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880. Her mother was Kate Adams Keller, and her father was Colonel Arthur Keller. Her sister was Mildred Keller. After she got a disease that is now thought to be scarlet fever when she was one and a half years old, she became blind and deaf. Helen often had temper tantrums and threw fits. Then, on March 3rd, 1887, Anne Sullivan came. She was a young graduate of the Perkins School for the Blind. Anne wanted to teach Helen words. She gave Helen a doll and signed d-o-l-l into her hand. Helen quickly learned how to do the hand signs, but she did not understand what they meant. Anne saw this and went out to the pump with Helen. As water flowed over Helen’s Hand, Anne signed w-a-t-e-r. Helen suddenly understood that w-a-t-e-r, or water, meant this flowing liquid. She quickly learned the names of other things and the alphabet. She began writing, and, at the age of ten, she learned how to talk. Helen went to speech classes at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and attended the Wright-Humason School for the Deaf. Helen attended Cambridge School for Young Ladies in 1898, and she went to Radcliffe College in 1900. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude in 1904. She was the first deafblind person to earn this degree. Helen was a writer and has written many books about her life. She was an activist and protested for equal rights.
Helen was had amazing perseverance. She was incredibly smart and she found ways to do everything that she needed to. She tried hard to overcome her challenges and found ways to do things that worked. She could not see, but she used a braille typewriter to write articles and books. She tried her best at everything she did. She tried super hard, and she accomplished so much because of this.
Helen Keller was so courageous. She had a lot of things that were difficult to do, and she still did them. She had a voice that was hard to understand, but she spoke in public anyway. She wrote books and spoke out about women's rights. She was also humble. She didn’t brag or do things to be famous, she did things because she believed in them.
Helen Keller is an amazing person. She had a lot of difficult things to overcome, but she overcame them and went on the become an activist. She could have been a nothing, but instead Helen decided to be a hero. She is a truly amazing person. I want to be like her because she was very strong and persevered. She had a lot of challenges, and she still did amazing things. Thank you for reading my hero essay.

My hero is: Stephen Hawking. My Hero
A hero is someone who uses wisdom other than violence. Someone who perseveres. A hero is creative. A hero is giving. A hero is intelligent.A hero is someone like Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942 (1-8-1942). He died on March 14, 2018 (3-14-18). Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford, United kingdom. He died at Cambridge, United kingdom. His age of death was 76. He was completely paralyzed at age 21. He was a paralyzed theoretical physicist and went to Oxford college. Stephen Hawking has 3 siblings: Mary Hawking, Edward Hawking, and Philippa Hawking. There is some information on Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking persevered. When Stephen was paralyzed, it didn’t stop him from becoming extremely smart and going to an incredible college. He persevered his way through a 76 year life. Stephen Hawking was giving. He helped educate others, and gave them a learning experience. Stephen Hawking helped and inspired millions through perseverance and giving.
Stephen Hawking was very intelligent. He added to the world of science, discovered many things, and went to an amazing college. He was fearless. When Stephen Hawking was paralyzed, he didn’t let it bring him down. He didn’t care, he didn’t let it scare him or let kids make fun of him. Stephen Hawking showed no fear, and he was incredibly intelligent.
Stephen Hawking is my hero because he inspires me, and taught those in need. He didn’t let people get in his way of becoming smart, even though he was paralyzed. If I could ever be anywhere near as intelligent as him it would be a dream come true. Thank you for reading my final COG project.

My hero is: The Wright brothers. I think a hero is someone that invents or does something that changes people's lives while persevering. Also a hero is brave and learns from their mistakes. My heroes are the wright brothers.
Orville Wright was born August 19, 1871 in Dayton, Ohio and died on January 30 1948 in Dayton Ohio. Wilbur Wright was born April 16 1869 in Millville, Indiana and died May 30 1912. While in High school Wilbur intended to go to Yale, but suffered a facial injury while playing hockey. That facial injury prevented him from continuing his education. Then in 1892 they opened the Wright Cycle Shop in Dayton. When the Wright brothers took up flight they already had knowledge on how to build machines because of the Cycle shop.
The Wright brothers had to persevere a lot. They persevered whenever one of their wing designs didn’t work out. They also invented the technique of wing warping. Before they succeeded they took a glider they had developed to Kitty Hawk, NC, that glider crashed because of wind. Then they went back to the drawing board , and the next glider worked. They used that design to help succeed with the Wright Flyer.
The Wright brothers changed people’s lives by inventing the airplane. Imagine if you were in New York and wanted to get to Berlin Germany, you would have to take a boat and then car. But since the Wright brothers invented the airplane, now you only have to take plane.
The Wright brothers were brave because they knew that Otto Lilienthal died while riding a gider because there was a sudden gust of wind. They knew that this could happen, in fact the day they flew on a windy day, The wright brothers learned from their mistakes an example of this is: they went to Kitty Hawk, NC to test out a glider they had produced, it crashed. The Wright brothers went back to the drawing board and made changes to the design like increasing the wing size. It improved but was impossible to control. They made a third glider and was easy to control and could sustain lift.
The Wright brothers taught me that anything is possible and that things do not go right the first time, and also that perseverance is key. I hope that when I grow up I could be like them. Thank you for reading my essay.

My hero is: Dr. Jeffrey A. Cianchetti.
A Hero is a man or woman who demonstrates giving or doing something for others. A hero persists. A hero could be a kid, a hero could be be an elderly man, a hero could be someone who doesn’t even intend on becoming a hero. A hero saves lives, helps others, and does good things for those in need. Someone like Dr. Jeffrey Cianchetti, who I know as my very own grandpa.
Dr. Cianchetti was born on June 26, 1949 and is still alive today in good health. He attended Case Western and and the University of Akron for his undergraduate degree, but got his PhD at Ohio State University. He worked as a ER doctor for -- years. He is married to my grandma, Angela, and his kids are Andrea, the oldest and my very own mom, Anthony, the middle kid, and the youngest, Alena.
As an emergency doctor, he spent lots of time saving lives. He couldn’t spend as much time with his family. He gave his time to help those in need. That is trait of a good hero. Also, he never intended on being considered a hero. He studied hard and did his job. He was a hero! He saved lives and helped people, but never considered being called a hero.
Heroes need to persist. That is what Dr. Cianchetti does. When someone is rushed into the hospital and has a terrible injury, it can be a challenge to find a way to help. But when all hope is lost, my grandpa perseveres and helps people. Everyday of his career. That’s not all though. He has saved countless lives, helped many people that needed help, and always tries hard.
Thanks for reading about my hero Dr. Jeffrey A. Cianchetti. I think he perfectly demonstrates the characteristics of a hero. He studied when his friends went to parties and in the end looks like the work paid off. He has saved many lives. I hope you agree that this man is a hero.

My hero is: My Mother. My Hero
By: Haruka from Dublin
I think a hero can come in different shapes and sizes, and do something to benefit others in many ways. What I’m trying to say is, I think heroes can be a hero in different ways. I think a hero is willing to put someone before themselves, and care about them more than themselves. Some words to describe my hero is, caring, forgiving, thoughtful, and loving. While the list goes on to explain my hero, I would have to say my mom would be my hero.
Here are some information about my mother. My mother used to work the same job as my father in Japan, but when we moved to America for my father’s job, she quit and now she just stays home and cleans the house. Our family isn’t that big. My mom has a little brother who has two kids, and my father has a little sister who just had a twin baby and also has a little girl. My mother’s birthday is March 10th. All of her education was in Japan, so her English is not so great. However, she supports me in Japan and in America.
Like I have mentioned before, I would describe my mother like loving and caring. First, she is loving because when my cousin left her house,my mother kindly let her in even though she already took care of me and my dog . This showed she loved my cousin like it was her own daughter. Second I think she is caring because when my dad’s grandma (My great grandma) she gave her flowers not minding the fact that she barely knew her and also gave her a good luck card. When I saw this I could see how my great grandma was smiling and thanking my mom. This told me she cared about everyone too. All of this proves she is loving, and caring.
The other two words like forgiving and thoughtful is another way I would describe my mother. First she thinks about her family more than herself. I know this because, when I forgot wash my gym clothes in Japan, even though it was 11PM she still washed it for me and woke up around 5AM to check on it. This example shows she cares about not only me but everyone in her family.Second I would describe her like forgiving because one time my dog accidentally knocked over a glass cup and my mom just told him it was okay and forgave him. I knew I would have gotten mad, but seeing her told me she was very forgiving. These examples show she is caring, and forgiving.
Because of all the examples above, I think heroes can come in different shapes and sizes.Like I have said before I would describe her like, caring, thoughtful, loving, and forgiving. She encourages me to keep believing and love yourself no matter what you are going through.She has never stopped believing, and I look up to her because of it. All of this concludes that my mother would be my hero. Thank you for reading my hero essay.

My hero is: Roald Dahl. I believe a hero is someone you look up to and admire. They can be admired for their achievements, courage, or something else. Heroes can be anyone. People with disabilities that persevere, athletes, and in this case, authors. My hero, Roald Dahl possesses these four character traits, bravery, creativity, resilience, and perseverance. I truly believe Roald Dahl possesses these traits.
Roald Dahl was born on September 13, 1916 in Llandaff, Wales. His parents, Harald Dahl and Sofie Magdalene Hesselberg, were Norwegian immigrants. He grew up with five siblings. He had four sisters and one brother. When he was older, he joined the Royal Air Force during WWII. After his plane crash-landed, he recovered and became an author. His books include: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG, and many others. He died on November 23, 1990.
Bravery. I think Roald Dahl showed bravery when he joined the Royal Air Force. Many people would probably be scared to risk their lives for their country. There is a likely chance that you will lose your life. But Roald Dahl was brave and he took a risk. I guess that’s another trait. Taking responsible risks. Another trait he shows is perseverance. He didn’t just give up on life when his plane crashed. Instead, he became a bestselling author! By 2016, 10.4 million books written by Roald Dahl have sold.
Roald Dahl possesses a LOT of creativity. He made up a lot of wacky words, like snozzcumber (BFG), Vermicious Knids (Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator), Oompa Loompas (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and many more words! He made up a lot of characters, too! The Trunchbull, the Big Friendly Giant, Willy Wonka, etc. His books are so imaginative. Imagine flying a glass elevator into space, imagine getting plucked from your bed by a giant, and imagine crawling into a giant peach and finding giant insects waiting for you. His imagination is so crazy! Roald also shows resilience. His sister died at age 7, his wife had a stroke, and his daughter died also at age 7. He didn’t just stop writing amazing books, he continued to write.
Roald Dahl is a hero to me because of his resilience, bravery, creativity, and perseverance. I really want to be like him. This is why Roald Dahl is my hero.

My hero is: Christopher Reeve. My Hero
By: Estella from Dublin
A hero doesn’t have to be somebody like Superman, or the Flash. Heroes don’t have to have magical powers. They are motivated by what their heart says is right. A hero possesses traits like courage, and passion. They must also possess perseverance, and caring. My hero is Christopher Reeve.
Christopher Reeve was born on September 25, 1952 in New York City to Barbara Pitney and Franklin D’Olier Reeve. While his mother was a journalist, his father was a teacher, novelist, and scholar. He also had a younger brother, Benjamin. He had various stage and television roles before becoming the star of Superman and its sequels. In 1995 he became paralyzed from the neck down following a horse-riding accident. He then founded the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation in 1998 to promote research on spinal cord injuries. Christopher Reeves was famous as an actor. He is known as the first Superman! He died on October tenth, 2004 because of heart failure.
Heroes have traits that signal they are heroes. Christopher Reeve has traits like passion and perseverance. A symbol of passion is how after he had a fall. He got up and founded the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation in 1995. Christopher himself was paralyzed the neck down in a horse riding incident. He was passionate about improving lives of people with spine paralysis, by researching this. His perseverance came in when he fell in his horse riding incident. Determined to walk again, he worked hard on rehabilitation. By 2004, Christopher Reeve had regained sensation in 70% of his body, had moved one of his fingers. In water, his arms and legs. He never gave up hope and kept trying, to accomplish founding the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, and to be able to somewhat move! These are some of the hero traits Christopher has.
Reeve also has the traits courage and caring. He had courage to try to move again, and speak out for things like stem-cell research. He had courage to start an organization. He had passion and perseverance. Although he was not able to move from the neck down, Reeve continued to travel, do public appearances, and serve as a voice for the paralyzed in the United States. He also showed caring. He made a role model for people. He cared for people in situations like him, paralyzed from the neck down. He did this by providing a opportunity to research spine paralysis with the Christopher Reeve Foundation.
Because of these qualities, Christopher Reeve is my hero. He showed and demonstrated things like courage, passion, perseverance, and caring. He inspires me to keep going. To also be considerate to others, and more. Even though he fell in a horseback riding event, and got paralysis from the neck down, he persevered. Also, he founded the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, to make people similar to him feel comfortable. He powered through challenges. Christopher Reeve wasn’t just a hero, he was the Man Of Steel. Thank you for reading my hero essay!

My hero is: Dennis Slawson , My Grandpa. A hero is a person who helps or supports people in a good way and not in a bad way, they can be anywhere and help anyone. I believe a hero should possess kindness, courage, fairness and honesty all of these traits would define a hero. I chose my hero to be… my Grandpa.
My Grandpa worked in the Air Force and was stationed in Korea for a few years and then was discharged after 6 years of working. He went to Bishop Ryan High School and was born in Buffalo. My family was very emotional when he died at the age of 71. He died in a hospital while he was sick. My family has a lot of Aunts, Uncles, Brothers, Sisters and Grandparents so there was lots of family and friends at the funeral.
I choose kindness and fairness for my traits to talk about. My Grandpa possesed kindness because when we went over to his house he was always nice to us when we stayed there he made us breakfast, lunch and dinner, also he would hug us a lot when we came and left. For fairness when we played games he always played fair and gave us extra turns to have more fun as he said. He would also play fair and not argue about unreasonable things during games.
My other two are courage and honesty. For courage my Grandpa stood up for our family and friends always. He also would help you up if you fell down, he was a real helper to our family until his passing. For honesty he was always honest when he spilled something or dropped something, he would never lie, never blame something on anybody or hide from telling the truth.
My Grandpa is my hero because he was always honest, kind and reassuring to anybody. My Grandpa means a lot to me because he’s in my family and everyone in my family I care about. I want to live up to his standards by being nice, kind and loyal. Thank you for reading “My Hero Essay”

My hero is: Albert Einstein. A hero is a person that can do something good for a community that will change someone’s life. A hero should be persistent, be doing the right things, do things to help people, and should be confident A person that shows all of these qualities is Albert Einstein.
Albert Einstein was born on March 14th, 1879 in a town called Ulm, Germany. He died on April 18, 1955 in Princeton, New Jersey. He died at age 76 with 3 kids. Before that, Albert Einstein went to four colleges: ETH Zurch, the University of Zurich, the Complutense University of Madrid, and the Unversity of Rostock. Although he quit school at age 15, he was theoretical physicist and won a nobel prize for physics in 1921 at age 42 years.
Albert Einstein shows the trait persistance becuase he failed many times in trying to become succesful. For example, he failed 7 times before proving that E = mc2 was accurate.
He also did the things right for him by quitting school because he knew he could teach himself and had to help his family.
Albert Einstein did things to help people by inventing things such as the Einstein refrigerator which is an absorption elevator that only runs on a heat source. Albert Einstein also shows confidence by believing he could prove that E = mc2 was accurate.
Albert Einstein is my hero because he did so many things to help develop more knowledgeso we know what we know about different things today such as Einstein’s theory of relativity. I want to live up to Einsteins help to the world today and contribution to human knowledge. Thank you for reading “My Hero Essay.”

My hero is: MaryAnn Oehlerking. My Hero
What is a hero? A hero can be many things. In my definition a hero is someone who makes a positive impact on someone's life. Heros display many characteristics that include effort, kindness, inspiration, and belief in others. My hero is MaryAnn Oehlerking.
MaryAnn was born in 1991, and is now 27 years old. She was a gymnast growing up, and finished her gymnastics career as two-time All American Division 1 gymnast at Ball State University. She now coaches at Gym X-Treme gymnastics in Lewis Center, Ohio, but before she was competitive director and head coach at Bismarck Gymnastics Academy in Bismarck, South Dakota, and Vail Gymnastics Center in Vail, Colorado.
MaryAnn shows many characteristics of a hero. Two of them are effort and belief in others. MaryAnn shows effort as she was a former gymnast who went through a lot including splitting her toe open on the beam. She also displays effort by helping gymnasts become better when they don’t think they will, and helping gymnasts overcome injuries toughly. MaryAnn also shows belief in others. She always has belief that someone can do something if they put their mind to it, even if they think that they can 99.9% can’t.
MaryAnn doesn’t just display those two characteristics. She also displays kindness and inspiration. MaryAnn displays kindness as she helps others in tough situations, and always believes in others. She always tells us that today just might not be the day, but she still pushes us hard to be the best. She also displays inspiration. She displays inspiration especially to me because I want to have all of her gymnastics successes and hopefully more someday. She inspires me to always try hard and never give up hope even on the toughest of days.
MaryAnn Oehlerking is my hero because she always reminds me to be my best and one day I want to be just like her and have her success and maybe more.
Thank You for reading my work.

My hero is: My COG and 6math teacher, Mrs. Christman.
A hero is hardworking. A hero is someone that does the right thing without thinking. A hero is courageous, and they get back up when their down. My hero is my COG and math teacher, Mrs. Christman.
I know Mrs. Christman is hardworking, because she won’t stop trying to teach something, even if we are completely clueless about what she is trying to teach. She will keep finding new ways to teach us, like when I was completely clueless with algebra and she found a fantastic way to teach it. Mrs. Christman also automatically will do the right thing, like it's helping a kid who needs it.
Mrs. Christman is courageous, and I know that because she has to go to school 180 days a year and deal with us. If that's not courage, than I don’t know what is, because I can’t imagine dealing with myself, let alone 23 other kids. But somehow she manages to get through it and that is the definition of courage.
So, because of all of her great qualities, amazing personality, and eagerness to teach. I want to have all of that, and that's why I look up to Mrs. Christman. Thank you for taking your time to read this.

My hero is: Wilma Rudolph. A hero is someone who is just an ordinary person who wasn’t intending to be a hero and then something happened or occured that made them a hero. They are passionate, courageous, humble, and they persevere. A hero that I think has all of those charistics is Wilma Rudolph an American track and field athlete.
Wilma Glodean Rudolph was born on June 23rd 1940 in Saint, Bethlehem, TN. 54 years later she died on November 12, 1994 at Brentwood, TN. Her Education was at Tennessee state university. Wilma was a track and field athlete, and had four children; Yolanda, Djuanna, Xurry Eldridge and Robert Eldridge jr. Wilma was married to William Ward (1961-1963) & Robert Eldridge (1963-1980) .
Wilma Rudolph was stricken with double pneumonia, scarlet fever and polio as a child, she had problems with her left leg and had to wear a brace and was very courageous. But she won 3 gold medals in the olympics. She persevered through her rough time and conquered her fears becoming the youngest member of the U.S. olympic track and field team.
Wilma never boasted, bragged, or talked about how hard her life was because she was humble. She could of just given up at that point but she kept on pursuing her dreams and working toward her goal.
Wilma rudolph was one of the most recognized track and field star and she is definitely a hero because after she had all of those diseases she still kept of going. I think any kids with illnesses shouldn't let that stop them, they should be brave and most of all courageous. Thank you for reading Wilma Rudolph.

My hero is: Rosa Parks. My Hero
By: Alexandra Jansnsen
A hero is someone who helps somone in need and stands up for what is right.
A hero must be: Couragous, Respectful, Honest, and Trustworthy. Hero’s aren’t always people who try to be a hero, they can have no clue that one day they’ll wake up and become a hero. Personaly my hero is Rosa Parks.
Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913 and died on October 24, 2005. Rosa went to school at Montgomery Industrial Shool for Girls. Rosa Parks worked as an activist to fight for African-American’s rights. Rosa Parks family includes, her mother: Leona McCauley, her father: James McCauley, her brother: Sylvester McCauley, and last her spouse: Raymond Parks.
I think that Rosa Parks is a brave hero because she took the risk of getting thrown in jail just because she wanted all black people to be equal with every other person on earth. By taking that risk she made every black person one step closer to being equal. A hero should be trustworthy, and I think that Rosa Parks was a trustable person because she never let anyone down because she said that she wanted all the African-Americans of the world to be equal with the white people. And then many years later her dream came true, the segregation between black and white people stopped.
Another reason why Rosa Parks was a hero is because when she went to jail she didn’t even object to breaking the law because she was an honest person and she was proud of herself. When Rosa Parks refused to get out of her seat to let a white man have it, most white people thought that was unrespectful, but Rosa Parks was being a respectful hero because she stood up to her race.
Rosa Parks is my hero because she was brave to risk everything she owned, just to let her people be free. I don’t know if I could do somthing like she did. Thank you for reading “My Hero” story!

My hero is: Criminon.
Another Criminon Success I just heard about. "Today I've been sober for four years! It all started when I landed in prison and was introduced to Criminon. I was high when a friend of mine was like "Bro, look at you! in prison, still getting high"...At first I didn't want to address my addictions because I felt like getting high was getting by (I got ten years to get through.) I did want help though to be a better person. I started with a Personal Integrity course. I loved it! I liked it so much that I stopped getting high. When I finished it I picked up this Overcoming Addiction course and I now "get by" sober and have no desire to ever go back to the drugs!" Criminon helps criminals to find their way back to achieving happiness and regaining self-respect.

My hero is: Ahmad Mazin Alshugairi. Every rule has an exception, and the "success story" of Ahmed Shukairy, the most famous program in our Arab world, Khawar, is one such exception. The beginnings of "Ahmed Shuqairi" features the life of a young man who is not committed to prayer and smokeless, and did not have a meaningful message and clear features, but it is thanks to God other than the fact that culminated in the "success story"

My hero is: Criminon.
Criminon is an organization that works to rehabilitate criminals and uses the booklet "The Way To Happiness", among other things, to educate criminals on the subject of morals. Here is a recent success. "What I got the most out of Criminon was reinstating good morals in my life. I was blessed to have my mom in my life who taught me right from wrong. But because of a lot of other negative influences in my life, I became lost in my anger and pain. During my life of crime on the streets, I began to forget about these morals and only applied them to my family and close friends on occasion. Coming to prison these morals of kindness, respect and the golden rule became nonexistent. I didn't care for anyone, the world revolved around me. As the years in here passed by, the more my moms voice faded. All the counseling and advice she gave me was gone. Doing this course helped me remember who I was and what I was taught at a young age. As I did the course work my mom's voice became louder. Now, I am very conscious about respecting others, treating them with respect, being kind and to stay away from criminal behavior regardless of how petty it may be." The Criminon program utilizes the research discoveries made by American author and humanitarian, L. Ron Hubbard, who had personally worked as a Special Officer for the Los Angeles Police Department in the late 1940's. Mr. Hubbard discovered that every criminal career began with the loss of self-respect. When a man could no longer trust himself, only then did he become a real threat to society.

My hero is: Human Rights Activists.
My heroes are activists who stand up to evil without fear for their lives. They are the Syrian refugees who I have met while here in Jordan. Their vision and dreams of the future gives me hope. Mohamad Al Jounde is one of them. Undeterred by his status as a refugee, he built a school in his camp in Lebanon to make sure children remain in school.
