My dad was row, row, rowing his boat gently through college with his team. Can he take his skills to the next level? Listen to him telling his story about hard work and chance taking. A part in his life that will stick with him forever.


He is my personal hero because of his determination. He achieves whatever he puts his mind to. It has taught me many things and ways to succeed. He continues to guide me through the ways of success.

My True Heroes

A hero is one that inspires and has a positive effect on another life. My untouchable hero is Tobin Heath. She plays on the Women's US National Soccer Team and played for the University of North Carolina. Tobin relates to me because she is a determined, successful, amazing soccer player and person. She is a role-model and my future goal. She fits the criteria of my true hero through her inspiring acts and her positive effects.

Student Athletes in College

“BEEP, BEEP, BEEP” is the screeching sound of an alarm clock, helplessly trying to get a college student athlete’s eyes to open. It is very early but this student has no choice but to get up. Tough classes and the exhausting practices the night before wears a student out. Now, having to wake up super early to study for that exam for the super strict professor.

The Correct Way to Define a Hero

Surprisingly, in the Greek religion, a hero is a famous person. After his/her death that person was worshiped (encyclopedia.com). The online Webster dictionary defines a hero as a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities. These definitions are not the real deal, just the first thing that comes to mind. The stereotypical hero is someone on the top of a building with the wind in their cape, standing up strong and tall, but a hero has much more meaning. A hero is one that inspires and has a positive effect on one's life.
