Chef Lindsay Smith of Nirvana Grille
Nirvana Grille
Jennifer Hughes from Laguna Beach, California, United States - 12/17/2020 8:55:19 AM
My hero is: Lindsay Smith.

Our family moved to Laguna Beach a year ago. We chose Laguna for many reasons. My partner, Jeff, grew up here and has always longed to return and I was personally drawn to Laguna as it reminded me of living in Italy for three years when I was in my 20’s. Together, we both love the charm the city has to offer including all the restaurants, shops, recreation, gorgeous beaches and the kind of European look and feel that is unique only to Laguna Beach. Since moving here, we‘ve frequented several local restaurants, but one in particular stands out for many reasons. We met Lindsay Smith, Executive Chef and Owner of The Nirvana Grille only a few months ago, and her story and passion for her restaurant are a true rarity in this world today. The restaurant business is beyond challenging. It’s hard work, requires constant attention and an ultimate passion to create a business that will stay intact over time. It requires a “marriage” if you will, to your business day in, and day out. I personally worked managing a local fine dining restaurant, pizzeria and winery for years, so I understand the challenges, effort and hard work put forth to be successful in the industry. As we’ve returned to Nirvana grill time after time, we’ve both gotten to know Lindsay and personally, I’m extremely impressed with her establishment, staff, menu and passion for it all. As I learned over time more about her personal story and her family, I began to see how she’s quite the inspiration and role model to this small community! I was impressed to learn that Lindsay is the only female chef in Laguna Beach and is the sole restaurant owner of Nirvana Grille, without partners or investors. She was born and raised in Laguna Beach, going through the entire school system and her family still resides in town. She’s recently divorced. She bought her ex-husband out of the restaurant as they negotiated their divorce and they worked side-by-side through the first round of COVID closures. Lindsay has had to not only face the challenge of divorce but is now a newly single mother to 2 young boys. Both of her children were both born while operating Nirvana Grille over the last 13 years. She found out she was expecting her first son, Diego, only 4 months into their build out of the restaurant and he was born the day before the Pageant of the Master’s opened for the season. He youngest son is only 4 years old. Lindsay has a creative, open mind to continuously build a business that can and will withstand COVID. She’s come up with a few innovative solutions to keep her staff employed, her customers beyond satisfied and her business ultimately strong. Continuously creating and expanding, she is now offering customers a “Co-Op Grocery Market”. The market gives customers access to better products than the local markets and works to help her business expand. She’s also offering Zoom Cooking Classes to utilize her talents as a chef, as well offer our products through the market simultaneously. She’s also worked to create a special “To Go” option for her customers that is unique, including “plated” meals available for pick up or delivery. Lindsay is re-designing her business plan to push her business in a better way while focusing on the community and its safety amidst a detriment in closure again. She’s created some brilliant innovations through the COVID closures, which really makes her business stand out. We all see things in a different way in how we create food from the same ingredients and Lindsay understands that now is the time to think outside the box and be creative, amidst COVID within the restaurant industry. All-in-all, I love the innovation Chef Lindsay has instilled into her business, all while facing her own personal challenges and raising a family. Her passion and drive for continued success, all while being a caring and nurturing human to not only her family and staff, but also to her friends and customers while faced with difficult adversity, is admirable and should not go unnoticed. It’s wonderful seeing a woman face a difficult situation with open arms; as we all are struggling during these unrest COVID times. In my opinion, Chef Lindsay's positive, "never give up" and "think outside the box" outlook make her an excellent role model and hero, especially during these trying times.

Jennifer Johnson from Joplin, MO, USA - 12/8/2020 3:22:38 AM
My hero is: My husband . My hero is my husband. Before him, trust "might exist" in a single grain of sand in a desert mirage. I prayed GOD please help me to atleast give this guy my all and trust him to succeed or fail. I'm glad I did! It's truly the little things he does that makes him spectacular. He has a heart for the underdog, an arm to lend to the weak, a shoulder to lean on for the downtrodden, but mostly arms wide enough for me to crawl right in.

Who was there guiding you and seeking the right and wrong answer? Well in my case that's my mom. My mother was there to witness my first goal, my first medal, my first dance rehearsal. She was there to push me to do my best and to look the best. My mother is not like any other mother, now yes we go through our ups and downs but at the end of the day who is still with me and by my side, my mom!

I am writing this tribute to Lara. Lara and I grew up together, my mom was pregnant with me and her mom was pregnant with her. We were born 21 days apart. We were neighbors for years until we both moved to bigger apartments. We never went to the same school, but we did ballet together and even though we were not door neighbors we hang out everyday. She was my sister, she was part of my family. She was there in the happiest moments of my life and she was also there in the saddest ones. We are still friends if you are wondering but she lives in Brazil and I came to the US. She is and always will be my number one, and I could not have ever asked for a better friend to spend most of my life with.

My hero is: Carolina Deganis.

My whole life, there has been one person who was there for me when I was in tough situations. That person is Carolina Deganis. Or as I know her, my mom. She is truly someone special. Since I was a kid, when I had a problem, she had a solution. She was always there to help me fix my problems. To me, there is nobody that is greater than her. I always looked to her when I had difficulties with school-related things, such as overwhelming work, obnoxious kids, and any other thing that stressed me out. She is always there for me and her words are of great help. She gives great advice and listens to me no questions asked. Of course she gives me her opinion and tells me if I did something wrong, but she shows me she loves me all the time, and that is very important to me. She always supports me and has my back like no other. For all these things, I am very grateful. She is the greatest person and I’m very lucky to have her as my mom.

She also always deals with the dumb things I and my siblings do. She has gone through a lot of hard stuff but she is still here with us.

To Ian, who has been there with me since I was like 2 you always have something funny to say or to do. We have the best plans and even if the plan gets ruined by rain or Covid you still manage to turn it into one of the best memories. You have been there with me through thick and thin, you don't ever make me mad or sad, only make me happier and more excited. I remember when we went to your birthday and you would every year invite like 10 of your 1 million friends to sleep over, and you would always invite me first and always no matter the situation even when your mom died you would still be happy and make sure others were happy before you were happy. This is what makes you such a great friend to me and everyone. Thank you for always having such fun moments with you and having the best and funniest friend in the world. I couldn't possibly imagine the world without you. Thank you so much.

Thank you

Mia Gal from Aventura, Florida, United States of America - 11/30/2020 2:45:46 PM
My hero is: Ziporah Gal .

When I think about that one hero in my life I think of my mom, Ziporah Gal. When you think of the words amazing, beautiful, supportive, thoughtful, and compassionate that’s the definition of my mom. My mom wakes up every morning to make sure that I have food for school so I don’t need to make it. She always makes time to hear me complain about all my issues and complaints about things… although I still don’t understand how she deals with me talking so much. There was a time when I was younger when I used to swim and go to competitions and every time we did she would be supporting me shouting my name and making me feel special. When I am down or when I am happy she is always there to either cheer me up or to laugh with me. There was this one time I was trying to teach my mom tik tok dances and she didn’t understand how to do them so she just copied me in the most ridiculous way and it was so funny and we were crying so much from laughter and fell on the floor. That was by far the best time ever. My mom is the most spectacular and amazing things I was gifted to in my life and she will forever be my #1 best friend. THANK YOU IMA FOR EVERYTHING!!!

This person has been there for me most of my life. They are my best friend, someone who has always stuck by my side even when I wasn't in the best mood. They helped me through it and they are always helping me through my tough times. I had a rough part of my life where I really didn’t understand the point of living. They were the one person who told me all the things I would miss out on. They saved me.

Melanie Tamayo from Miami, FL, USA - 11/24/2020 2:57:31 PM
My hero is: My mom.

When I think of someone who has always been there for someone, and has always supported them no matter what, I think of my mom. My mom was born in Valle de Cauca, Colombia. She grew up with a younger sister. My mom grew up and would always help around the house. Her grandparents took a huge part in her life. When she was 19 she met my dad, my parents dated for 5 years. My mom decided to move to the US at 24, my dad moved shortly later. My parents moved to the USA because they wanted to start a family, in the best place possible. My mom sacrificed a lot to make sure my brother and I can grow up in the US. My mom and dad have always made sure I can get the newest shoes, the newest toys, the newest devices, and the newest clothes. My mom has always helped people no matter the situation. My mom works at a hospital, and whenever a loved one or a family friend is at a hospital, my mom constantly takes time to check on them, reach out to their doctors, and make sure they are okay. My mom has also always been there for me, when I was 12 I was going through a tough time. My mom would always check up on me, make sure I was doing okay. She would also always make sure that I knew that I could talk to her if I needed to. She would take me every week to my therapist and always make sure that I was okay. To this day my mom is my hero, and she will always be my hero.

Tiziana Greppi from Miami, Florida, United States - 11/23/2020 12:40:50 PM
My hero is: my mom.

Everyone always has a person in their life that has been there for you always and has a meaningful impact on your life. My mom is this person. My mom is so caring and is always there for me when I need her the most. She is so important to me because for starters she gave birth to me but also she teaches me things about life that she has gone through so that I don’t make the same mistakes. My mom always listens to what I say and consoles my disappointments and heartbreaks. She makes me feel like I matter in the world and that I am important. She is so funny and makes sure that I am always in a good mood when I am depressed. My mom loves me like no other person does. She wastes her time on me and cares more about me than herself. She tolerates my moods and fills me with happiness when I am sad. People like my mom are people to always stay with because they are crucial to being happy and they also need you to be happy as well. Even when my mom had her tough times, she still always made sure I was happy and filled with joy. My mom is hardworking and passionate for everything that she does. I couldn’t possibly live without her because she is so important to me. Although many people don’t have a mom, friends can also be loyal and can be your hero as well. My relationship with my mom is not only made because we are family, but because she is my mentor, my best friend, and my hero. I am blessed to have her as my mom and couldn’t imagine living without her.

I love her personality, because she is not afraid of sharing her opinion, she thinks much before doing something, she takes important things seriously. Beside that, she is a very good person, helpful, funny and loyal to her friends. Hermione is the type of friend you would love to have- loyal, kind, respectuous, modest, with an interesting personality and a very intelligent mind. From her I learned to care about the others, to help when the help is needed, to stay loyal to my friends and staying with them even when there are bad times. If I could have the chance to meet her, I would thank her for all the memories and lessons she gave me through the books. Created by: Florentina Scutaru

His life is an inspiration for me, it makes me belive that to try some new things it is not so horrible, it makes me think that life has a lot of good things to fight for.

My hero is: Stephen Hawking. The person that is a hero for me is Stephen Hawking, he is a disabled person, the smartest disabled person in the world. He was born in Oxford, England on January 8, 1942. In 1963 was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS is one of several types of motor neurone diseases. It gradually and inexorably paralyzes patients, usually killing within about four years. Hawking was diagnosed in 1963, when he was just 21 years old. He survived for 55 years with the incurable condition and this alone makes him a hero in my eyes and many other peoples eyes. Hawking is best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Stephen Hawking’s IQ is 160 and belongs to a genius group, only 0.003% of the world population. His life has inspired many people and brought enduring values with them. The fact that some people saw him as a “failed person” because of his illness and he proved them wrong so much that even the black whole wouldn’t be able to consume their shame and apologies makes him a better human being than us, a real fighter!

My hero is: President Donald Trump.

A man who loves and fights for the people of his country. He has taken on the cruelty and has been bashed but yet still fights for what is right for the people. Prior to his presidency, my worries were terrorism, my kids' safety, my retirement account dwindling, businesses fading, military being lessened and threatened, and really no hope. This man is elected and in such a short time, he turns all of that around while fighting against people that simply didn’t want him to be president. I saw myself retiring, I started to spend more because I had more. Every time I see him being shunned by the people he is helping, I think of that Mother Teresa saying...”do good anyway.” That’s him.. not a saint but my hero.

My hero is: Akiane Kramarik.

This one is my hero because I love art. She talks about how when she was a little kid she had visions and her parents did not believe in god. But soon after they became Christians because they sell her paintings and she believed in them so they did too. Her paintings were being sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars too. I think she had a really big imagination, especially to wake up at four and start painting. That is a little too early.

Hermione also stood up for what she believed in, like S.P.E.W.

Nitty emerged as an activist in 2016 during the unrest in the Sherman Park neighborhood of Milwaukee due to police brutality.

Right now, Nitty is leading a peaceful protest that is walking all the way to Washington D.C.! Frank Nitty is an activist for change and for the world to do better. He is working to turn unused, vacant buildings in Milwaukee into a place of hope that will provide housing for the homeless, after-school programs, and professional training. Frank Nitty strives for change, and for our community and world to be a better place. I admire Nitty - his perspective for change and his activist actions make him a hero.

My hero is: Jawaharlal Nehru. The son of Swarup Rani and Motilal Nehru, a prominent lawyer and nationalist statesman, Nehru was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge and the Inner Temple, where he trained to be a barrister. Upon his return to India, he enrolled at the Allahabad High Court and took an interest in national politics, which eventually replaced his legal practice. A committed nationalist since his teenage years, he became a rising figure in Indian politics during the upheavals of the 1910s. He became the prominent leader of the left-wing factions of the Indian National Congress during the 1920s, and eventually of the entire Congress, with the tacit approval of his mentor, Gandhi. As Congress President in 1929, Nehru called for complete independence from the British Raj and instigated the Congress's decisive shift towards the left.

Hi Ellen
Tim Wood
Tim Wood from Rochester, NY, United States - 8/5/2020 11:31:26 AM
My hero is: Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen you are my hero! How many years from when you first came out on your TV show Ellen. It was when I first came out was a very difficult time for me and I was for shade good morning took you off the air I was so offended I didn't watch TV for two years there was just nothing good on. And then never really got back to it but I knew you were there and when you came back you were so good and kind as you always were and people stood behind and I want it always to be that way. Please know that it is that way these other negative forces need to leave you alone. I'm concerned about you this is really hard and I wish I could protect your heart very sensitive kind soul and very giving just know that most everybody stands behind you beside you around you you just can't allowed to head to get anywhere near you. We're all cheering you on we're all smiling at you you need to do what you need to take care of yourself. Every now and then over the years I've thought I should write you and tell you how important and how much you mean to me even though I don't know you personally you made a huge impact in my life and on many lives not only just as a formally Christian who learn homophobia but also as a lesbian and then coming out as transgender. Those things are difficult to deal with to know that you're on TV and people are smiling and laughing and cheering you it makes me feel more human. Before all that you know it was a lot of negativity but you put the fun in lesbiun. :D

Donna Miller from Somers, NY, United States - 6/16/2020 2:23:06 PM
My hero is: Clare Carey - Food Services Director/Director of Musicals and Plays. I am a teacher in the Hendrick Hudson School District in Westchester County, New York. I am, like everyone else, learning to navigate doing my job and following my passion during a very difficult time with many restrictions. I am so fortunate to have a supportive group of parents that have partnered with me this year to help educate and motivate their children. Many of our parents are essential workers on the front line. They have worked round the clock to help their children while helping the community, whether they work in the field of medicine, essential retail, transportation or other emergency services. One person, in particular, has gone above and beyond to help and support all of the people in our school district and all of the people in the community and surrounding areas. Clare Carey, our food services director, has fed the bodies, minds and spirits of our school family and community. Clare and her crew have provided meals for those in need during quarantine. She not only fed those who receive government assistance, she fed anyone and everyone who needed a meal. Clare posts a humorous video every morning letting people know that she is there to help. If you need a meal, if you need a mask, if you need information or guidance – Clare was and is there for everyone. She worked, not only during school days, but on holidays and weekends if there was a need. She provided hot meals, bagged meals, breakfast and lunch and always made sure that they were provided in a discreet manner utilizing all safety precautions. Clare would give shout outs every morning on her videos. She praised and thanked all of our essential workers, teachers, fire department, police department, emergency response, supermarket staff, farmers, truck drivers, etc. She didn’t miss thanking anyone. Also, she reaches out to all of our students to let them know they are valued and missed. For our high school seniors, she created a celebration for them to celebrate their accomplishments and new endeavors. Clare made sure that every student was celebrated and was able to feel the connection to school during the quarantine. She went house to house delivering food (for those who could not come out to get it), shirts, masks and other PPE. Clare has a tremendous heart and boundless energy. Clare has made an incredible difference in the lives of so many people and she continues to do so. Today may be the last day of school, but she and her crew will be providing food until the end of the month. They are awaiting permission to open a kitchen over the summer to continue to serve our community and anyone in need. Clare is also the director of our high school musicals. She uses her time and talents to bring out the best in our students. She pulls back their layers to expose their talents and curiosity and helps them to find their inner strength and passions. The pandemic cancelled so many events in our district, but Clare made sure the kids got to share their hard work virtually. Clare always shines the light on everyone else. She doesn’t take anything for herself. I want to shine a light on the work that she is doing. If she cannot find funding for helping others, she funds it herself. Here is a woman who can inspire, motivate, nourish, educate and reach so many people. Clare has many of her own challenges that she needs to deal with on a daily basis. Clare has Parkinsons Disease and this affects her ability to physically move. Every day she fights through it, gets up and gets going always with a positive attitude and gratitude. She raises awareness and funds for Parkinsons. Clare has her own family of amazing people. When her husband was I kidney failure, she helped to find and get her husband through a kidney transplant. Clare has two wonderful sons who just graduated college this year. Both boys are going into service fields (no surprise). She recently had taken a big loan out to take her family to Ireland for a special trip while she felt she could still physically go. The pandemic not only cancelled her plans, but left her with a big loan to pay back because some of the monies were not refundable. Clare Carey is an essential worker, an essential provider and a selfless woman. She would never want to bring attention to herself. But, she is someone that should be recognized, supported and regarded as the ultimate role model. Thanks to Clare’s heart and soul our community is able to weather the storms that come our way.

Dr. Angela Guerrera works for Cooper Hospital, in Salem’s Emergency Dept. On her days off, she also works at 3 other hospitals. She works with COV-19 patients, daily. Her hours are usually 7pm – 7am, so she has time during the day to spend with her 4 beautiful daughters, Ages 1 – 7. With our current conditions, home schooling assignments are a priority! Angela is a devoted mother who makes sure her children are engaged in all that is important in their education, as well as their physical and emotional health. She is an amazing athlete and dancer. She grew up playing just about every team sport and played Lacrosse for the University of Notre Dame. She makes sure her children are also provided with similar experiences. Even though they are young, they have already had golf, tennis and gymnastics lessons, as well as, participating in soccer, T-ball and lacrosse teams. In addition, they are becoming excellent skiers and snowboarders. Angela also Danced for the Marcia Hyland Dance Company. She has recently, now remotely, returned to dance lessons there and three of her children are also enrolled in lessons. Angela is one of the most devoted mothers, I know.

Surjit Flora from Brampton, Ontario, Canada - 6/11/2020 5:04:32 AM
My hero is: My Dad Atma Singh Flora . He is always in my heart. I will always love him forever... and I have so much pain in my heart. I couldn't believe I lost him, just like that. My heart will never heal. Underneath the calm and happy mask, pain and turmoil continues to churn. As this weekend we celebrate Father's Day, the pain of having lost my father overwhelms me. As I remember my father, tears well up in my eyes and stream down my face. I well recall that modest-sized house with four rooms and kitchen, bathroom, and that little room my dad used as a Post Office, because he was a postmaster. In that house lived my four sisters, my brother, mom, dad and me. We were not rich, nor poor, just a nice happy loving family. My dad always wanted to move to Canada so he could provide better education and a better life for his kids. He wrote a letter to one of my uncles in Toronto for help. My uncle was more than willing and got in touch with an immigration office, successfully getting a visit visa for my dad. So the day came when he flew to Canada, in pursuit of a better future for his kids. I was only five years of age, going on to six. After a few months dad wrote us a letter saying he's fine and happy. That letter, and its many fellows down the years-- all with the same content-- kept coming to our doors for 11 years. Yet, even as he lived on here in Canada, his health was failing him-- but fearing we would worry he never let on about his ill health. He spent these years in Canada as a refugee; finally after 11 years when he got his landed immigrant papers, he wrote us saying he is coming to visit us and that all of us will be moving to Canada. The day never came... but we were not to know it then. We were all happy that we would finally be together. It was to be a huge family reunion. Sadly, my father did not live to see his family together as he suffered a fatal heart attack. We were shattered, in pain and in tears. And we were starving for our dad's love. My mother sacrificed all her life to take care of us and give us everything we needed. My uncle who had helped dad get to Canada once again came into our lives as an angel. While we were in India he wrote us a letter, full of love and affection-- love that I longed for. So touched was I that I then wrote him a letter addressing him as 'Dad.' Saddened by my letter he took upon himself the responsibility of taking care of us. He did his best to support us get to Canada, then helped us be successful in Canada. I'm 49 today, and it's going to be 30 years since we've been living here. Yes, Canada is a wonderful country. I continue to learn new things and find new challenges, new experiences in this new life. But still so many times I can't help thinking it was here that my dad was taken away from us. When I miss him, I want someone to hold me, give me a hug. And when I see how everyone simply dotes on their dads, gives them gifts on Father's Day, wishes them a long, happy life, I want to do the same-- but to whom can I give my Father's Day gift and card to? Where can I get a warm loving hug, a kiss? And it hurts, that life is so short, all too short, and the ones we love and who sacrificed so much for us are taken away from us so very early. So early, in fact, that we couldn't even get round to telling them how much we love them. But I guess they are the ones whom even God loves so very much. -- Surjit Singh Flora is a journalist based in Brampton. He can be reached at [email protected]

Heather LaRocco Home Healthcare Hero
Coleen McCrea Katz
Coleen Katz from HAVERTOWN, PA, USA - 6/4/2020 9:12:58 PM
My hero is: Heather LaRocco.

My daughter, Heather, is a home healthcare coordinator for the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. This is the epi center of the COVID 19 pandemic in Pennsylvania. She goes into people's homes and cares for those with the virus who are home bound. She sometimes does not have proper PPE. She also has a husband and two young sons at home who she needs to worry about carrying the virus home to after work. Her mother-in-law, who is over 70, lives with her as well. This all weighs very heavy on her. In addition to all of that, neither she nor her children have been able to really visit with us since March. They miss us terribly and we only live 2 miles apart. She normally bears this all with grace and dignity. She has just small moments of having the stress come down on her. She is truly a hero!

ARUNIMA BHALLA from Mankhool, Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 5/27/2020 1:40:25 PM
My hero is: Doctors and Nurses (Healthcare ).

In this pandemic the whole world is fighting against COVID-19. There are many unsung heroes that are in the community that came together to fight against COVID-19 such as doctors, nurses, journalists, policeman, scientists, delivery men, cleaners and volunteers who provide food, donate blood and other necessary things. In this global war my true heroes are Doctors and Nurses, selfless warriors have had to cut themselves off from their own families and loved one to prevent infecting people. Their sacrifice is for the sake of humanity. I salute them for their dedication to save lives in this pandemic.

Keysha Newell-Simon from Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - 5/22/2020 10:17:34 AM
My hero is: Maggie Bray.

Maggie Bray is the owner and director of my daughter's private school.  My daughter went from a special needs shy and reserved child until she began school at Maggie's school.  My daughter has been in her school going on three years now.  Her confidence has skyrocketed tremendously since being a student at Maggie's school. But, not only that Maggie is a full time K-8 private school owner, she is also a full time Registered Nurse.  Well before the COVID-19 outbreak,  Mrs. Maggie would have on her wish list from parents to donate lysol wipes and clorox wipes.  She has always been committed to keeping that school clean and sanitized.  I can go on an on on how important this person is to our community and to her students.  My child cries if she is unable to attend school.  And, that is a huge plus for me.  I appreciate that my child has gone from not having the want to attend school to not wanting to ever miss a day. It still blows my mind that Mrs. Maggie can operate a successful school and work as a full time Registered Nurse, while at the same time having three children of her own.  Simply remarkable!!  I proudly nominate her as "MY HERO" !

He is perhaps best known for his speech which began with the words - "Sisters and brothers of America ...," in which he introduced Hinduism at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago in 1893.Swami Vivekananda should always be remembered for his inspiration to the mankind.

We are more then proud the person she grew up to be and love her to the moon and back.

My hero is my English teacher.Actually , she is more than a teacher.She is in quarantine but she is always there for us.I know it is not easy to teach during the confinement .she has always believed in me. I remember very well, when she once said. I believe in you. You can make it .she never hesitates to lend me a helping hand.when I am down , she cheers me up. When She is the best teacher ever. During this quarantine, I got even closer to her.She is always ready to help me with my projects and she is always pleased to answer all my questions.This woman is an example to follow. When I grow up , I will be a teacher like her.I will keep motivating my pupils and I will spread love and positive energy like her. I will never forget her and her words will remind in my mind . She always says"where there is a will, there is a way. Dear friend ,our teachers are our second we must be forever grateful to them Thank you dear teacher .you are are a God's gift .you are my hero.

Daniel Kwon from Pullman, Washington, United States - 5/2/2020 2:45:58 PM
My hero is: Heath Care Workers. I could not just name just one of the health care workers who are risking their lives in this COVID-19 pandemic. Right now there are hundreds of thousands of doctors putting their lives on the line for others, and this act really inspired me to name my hero our Health Care Workers. Right now in this pandemic there are over 1,000,000 cases in America, which is an insane amount of cases. This is why I think health care workers are making a huge impact right now. If there weren't any workers right now that were risking their lives, there would be way more deaths than there are right now. I just wanted to share this because it really touched my heart because as they are saving they're also risking their own.  

Ginny Rees from Hewitt, NJ, USA - 5/1/2020 7:31:57 AM

My hero is: Marianne, my sister in law. My hero is my sister-in-law Marianne. She always wanted to be a nurse, however becoming a mother slowed her down. Once her children were all in school, Marianne completed her nursing degree and now works at a major hospital. It takes a special person to put themselves at risk to help others and Marianne is that type of person. During this coronavirus crisis, Marianne leaves her house at the crack of dawn and returns home 14 hours later. Before seeing her children after doing a shift at the hospital, she bleaches her shoes, takes off her scrubs and showers in order to keep her family safe. I respect what she is doing for others and admire how she is able to balance being a nurse during this pandemic and being a wonderful mom to her children.

MY HEROES are my parents
Credits to my parents
Ayari kmar from Megrine, Ben Arous, Tunisia - 4/24/2020 6:29:59 PM
My hero is: My parents.

We all are quarantined, but that's for us to stay healthy. I'm Kmar Ayari. I'm a student from Tunisia. Well, numerous are the heroes at this precise time. However, for me My Heroes during this pandemic are my parents. Indeed, we, my twin brother and I, are not accustomed to stay home for such a long period of time. We are outgoing teenagers, we're always hanging around with friends, but now, our parents are trying their best to tell us that staying home is not that bad. It has a lot of benefits, and they want us to see the proof of that. In fact, seeing them cooking together, making dinner, cakes..., playing games, hearing them, having fun, has changed our mood during that time. We're happier, we're closer to them, we're less anxious about what is going on. I'm really thankful to them for their support and efforts to help us overcome this difficult time. God bless them.

Fletcher Andrews - 4/23/2020 12:31:48 PM
My hero is: Hospital. The hospital is one of my best heroes. Without them, many people would not have recovered from Covid-19. People think that the hospital only cures close to none. That is true and false. It is true because scientists don't know how to properly treat it yet. It is false though because even though they are curing few, that still means that lives are being saved.

Nicholas Lamarche from Cornwall, Ontario, Canada - 3/12/2020 10:59:38 AM
My hero is: Stephen. My father works as a shipper and receiver which means when he receives shipments, he stores shipments, stores them in the warehouse he works from, and loads them up with his forklift into trucks for deliveries. A fun fact about my dad is he is a hockey and football fan. Also, he is very honest. My dad is my hero because he makes me happy and he supports my interests. The reason why he meets the criteria of a hero is he works long hours to support the family. My dad is my hero because he makes me happy. One time my dad made me happy was when he showed me the movie Weekend at Bernie's. It made me happy because I like those types of movies. Another time was when he taught me how to play hockey when I was young. Because at that point in my life, I liked to play sports. Also, my dad around seven years ago he bought tickets to take us on a cruise. That made me very happy because when I was seven I did not like school and so I was very content that I missed an entire week. My dad is my hero also because he supports my interests. One time he supported one of my interests was when I started collecting comic books and he would bring me to the comic book store near us. Also, when I wanted to be more active, he signed me up for taekwondo at a building that is run by a friend of my dad. Along with the time I wanted to play on a basketball so my parents signed me up for a basketball program during the spring. My dad would pick me up and cheer me on while I played. The reason that my dad is my hero is he makes me happy and he supports my interests. Interview With My Hero Who is your role model and why? Answer: He said my grandad because he was a hard worker and he was a family man What was your dream job growing up and what made you choose that job specifically?

Answer: He had fond memories and he had a lot of friends. What gets you out of bed in the morning and why? Answer: He responded that my mom, my sister, and I are the reason because he loves us. Why are you proud of what you do at work? Answer: He answered because it helps provide for the family How would you describe yourself? Answer: He said he considers himself a family man.
