    Who is your hero? Who is the best at what they do and inspires you to be the best that you can be at work?

    I admire some leaders of nonprofit organizations and colleges that are in positions where I'd like to be some day. Funny you should post this question b/c I admire several folks, and each for a separate reason.

    You know, I don't really get the whole "hero" thing. I'm a big fan of some celebrities, I love my parents, but a hero? I guess my personal definition of a hero is stronger than the way it is usually used. For someone to be my hero they would have had to literally save me from something or be such an influence on me as to make being like them my ultimate goal.

    I KNOW I'm going to end up like Karl Lagerfeld - when he was fat, with the fan.

    Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, Hillary & Bill Clinton, Ellen Degeneres, Matt and Trey Parker, Matt Groening, Steven Colbert, Morgan Spurlock, Anne Hathaway, Jodie Foster, Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep,

    To name a few off the top of my head, I tend to admire people mostly for talent or things they created, movements they started

    Coppers I guess. I was big into them when I was younger, then I found out most of them are assholes. I still feel the veneration I gave them when I was young, but I can't help feel somehow betrayed. Sad panda.

    I was actually a admin of justice major when one day the professor talked about giving people the smackdown with this expression of pleasure on his face, quite a few of the class cheered.
    I was so disgusted and robbed of my idealism that I never went back to his classes and dropped the major. I got an A in anthropology though. Now that is a major I could whole heartedly strive for.

    Elevating anyone in your mind is bad juju.

    i think alot of these responses were meant to be tongue in cheek (aside from the ones that are outright untrue).

    but mine is janet jackson. she's the reason i became interested in dance, which gave me a sense of direction, which gave me a reason to do well in school (so i could get out of my home town), and has since given me the opportunity to travel all over the place.

    so. janet jackson's "miss you much" literally changed the direction of my life. without her i might still be on the farm in harlem, ga:

    I admire Alan Turing.

    Often lauded as "the father of modern computing", Alan Turing worked to break the Enigma code during the World War II. His efforts saved thousands of lives after successfully cracking the code machine.

    Later, his country turned on him, finding him guilty of homosexual behavior (a crime at the time); the fact that he was a war hero was still classified. Rather than be forced through court-ordered mandatory hormone therapy, he elected to suicide.

    I am happy with who I am but I greatly admire Wanda Sykes.. she is just the greatest ever. Also, Ellen Degenerous and Hillary Clinton come to mind.

    Most importantly, I admire people who are true to themselves and have overcome obstacles in life. They are true inspiration to me.
