My coworker is my hero!
Benazir Bhutto, first woman to head a muslim country and fight for women's rights. She helped make a huge change in Pakistan.
My mother Nancy Ann she will be 88 in October of this year. She had a very hard childhood and suffered quite a lot and has perservered and raised her own 3 children by teaching us values and loving us just as we are. I am so thankful that I still have my mother in my life.
My grandmother Bonnie is my hero since she was in WW2, I've alway admires her. (Not only my grandmother was in ww2, her 2 brothers were also in the war too and my grandmother met my grandfather during ww2 since my grandfather was also in ww2)
My mother of course
My mom! Duh!
My late grandmother is my hero and always will be :)
Dominique Homberger is a brilliant anatomist and taught me to see this discipline in a totally different. She uses anatomy as an hypothesis-testing method. She teaches comparative anatomy in the Socratic method and her class is absolutely riveting as a result, because of the questions she can ask her students. I was mesmerized the entire time I visited her class. She is brilliant but gets little attention from her fellow faculty members because she is a woman in a highly bullying profession.
My Grandmother. She taught me so much and I miss her
My Aunt Mary even though she is no longer with us I remember everything she did for me really all of us as children and adults. She was a woman the was before her time and a real one of a kind she was for what was right and always fair, but so fun and a joy to be around she is someone who we lost way too soon. Mary you always looked out for the underdog and help them in many ways and I was one who was glad I had you in my life. Now your looking out for us all from Heaven and I love you and miss you everyday of my life.
Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots were two powerhouses; ruling their countries in a time of men. - Head strong and independent. I am also a huge fan of Dolly Parton and Ellen for their kindness.
my daughter Sarah who has protected our freedoms in two tours in Afghanistan; who survived a pregnancy of IV the entire nine months (Princess Kate's same issue) to give me an absolutely perfect granddaughter; who lives a Vegan life; who continues to adopt rescue dogs; and who loves me unconditionally.
My mom because she made me who I am today and took me in with love even though I wasn't her blood.
