Steve Irwin, AKA the crocodile hunter.

He was my childhood hero, and I always admired his personality.

My mother for turning against the blood of her family--suffering for years, only to do what was right. Even when it was for other people.

The closest thing I've had to a hero, particularly a childhood/celebrity hero, was Chris Jericho (of WWE fame). Growing up he was like the only famous person from my city that I knew or cared about, but Jericho was my favourite wrestler regardless and I admired him for a lot of reasons.

He's a great live performer, sure -- actor, singer, comedian, stuntman, etc. -- but the reason I liked him was because he was so real about his work. Yes, he was playing an exaggerated version of himself. He truly seemed to enjoy his work, and he seemed natural and familiar, so it was more than just the joy and humor and entertainment he brought me every week -- he sort of became a virtual friend I could look up to, like a role model.

Thinking about it now, I wanted to be like him, and I sort of did. I'm in a creative field of work (ad/marketing, and I've written some novels), but I put my self into it. Even when it's fiction, when it's not real (like wrestling), I am, and my ideas and traits and emotions shape my work.

Cenk Uygur.
Not really, he's just the first one that popped into my head. He can be an idiot, but he stands true to his beliefs and apologizes when he's wrong. Oh, and he built the most massive internet talk show literally from the ground up. Pretty impressive.

I feel like having a hero would make me set arbitrarily high goals.

My high school Spanish teacher/basketball coach Mr. Thompson (I'm not expecting any of you to know who he is ). He was pretty much like a second father to me. If anything was wrong, he was there for me. If I needed encouragement, he was there for me. Sure I had my parents, which were great in their own regard, but there were just things I couldn't talk to them about.

Definitely my parents, but mostly my mom.

I really respect my dad for working so hard as a surgeon to send me and my brother through college. My mom is just about the hardest working person I know and it always amazes me how she can read my mind when all I have to say is eh or meh. It also says something when I graduated high school some of my friends were telling me to tell my mom good bye as well. Of course it was a pain every time she had us work on some DIY project but looking back, it was a pretty good experience I guess. Overall my parents made me want to have a family of my own some day so I can hopefully by as good a role model for my kids as my parents were for me.
