My Hero

For my hero i have picked my father, i have learned so much from him and look up to him in everyday, he shows me on a daily basis how to truly value your priorities as well as being humble. i look up to my dad because of everything that he has gone through to get to where he is today. My dad was born and live in Mexico until he was 40, where we are from it isn't considered "nice", my grandfather struggled to provide for him as well as his 7 siblings. My dad grew up with the bare minimum, he had to go through adversity to accomplish what he has. My dad to me and many is the definition of coming from nothing and making something of yourself, there was a time in his life where he couldn't provide for anyone else but himself, he had barely enough for his necessities, he worked hard to now becoming a successful man and father, my family now is able to have whatever we want because of the hard work he put in over the years. My dad had every excuse to not be successful, he came from a bad neighborhood and bad schools, but he wanted the best for himself and worked hard until he had them. I've learned many great lessons from my father, but the most important thing he has taught me is to be humble, as that shapes you and shapes the view others have on you. I can always go to him for advice as i grew up in a similar situation as he did, we were both athletes and used that to relief the pain and struggles we have. I can always go to my dad for advice, as he understand what I'm going through better than anyone else.

Hero Quote

“And then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on, and you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive, so when you feel like hope is gone, look inside you and be strong, and you'll finally see the truth, that a hero lies in you.” – Mariah Carey

In this hero quote Mariah uses her lyrics to show her views of heroes, as everyone has the potential inside them to be one, everyone can be one and everyone is to another person. She expresses how its not a complex characteristic that only the special among us have, it truly is something that lies inside all of us. this connects to beowulf, specifically to wiggle, as he was the soldier who stood up for beowulf when nobody else would and he risked his life for him, while no one expected him to. This as well connects to my hero, my dad, as he would be the last person you would think would make something of themselves, he had nothing and made something of himself, he used his inner hero to get to where he is.

Connection To Movie

I have picked for my 3 words fate, deadly battle, and bravery, these three words remind me of the movie "Transformers", as Sam is a normal teenager who is surprised with the purchase of his car to be an autobot. Throughout the movie he shows his fate towards the help the humans are getting from the autobots, he has to believe and trust that they will help him save the human race. In this movie, there are many deadly battles, as most movies, the most important is the last one of the movie, as Sam, himself has to help them to achieve the goal which is defeat decepticons. Sam throughout the movie has to show outstanding bravery to be able to help them and to save the human race, as he is the key and the difference maker to winning and saving the world as we know it. He had to be brave enough and risk his life for the better of the others. All of these things can relate to beowulf to both wiggle and beowulf, as they had to have fate, bravery, as well go through a deadly battle.
