Who are your heroes?

Maybe "hero" isn't the right word - Who are the people who you aspire to/look up to/admire or are influenced by? It could be anyone - a parent or an uber celeb and it could be for ANY reason! Mine is a fairly ridiculous list as alot of mine are based on looks - I'm a very shallow, superficial person. Post some pics too!

Mine were/are:

Oprah Winfrey
Shizuka Arakawa
Michelle Kwan
Naomi Campbell
Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Lopez
Channing Tatum
Ayumi Hamasaki
Gong Li
Zhang Ziyi
Kate Moss
Scarlett Johansson

... pics to come.

Halep Venus
Lucic Konjuh

Re: Who are your heroes?

parents should be the first role models,my parents are good honest people thats good enough.outside of family i admire u2 bono for caring when nobody paid attention.,aung san suu kyi for her courage,mandela for standing up to injustice and oprah for doing what she loves and making money in the process.i admire anyone who survived after adversity be it a tsunami,war,holocaust famine etc.
