Hero Project

Nolan

Intro paragraph

My Uncle Jimmy is a hero because he takes risks and inspires people. His teachers told him he would never succeed in art and he shouldn't pursue it, but he did and became the leading art designer for a magazine company. In doing this he inspires people like me to follow my dreams regardless of what anyone says. This is a hero.

Artist and designer

My uncle Jimmy became the leading designer and artist for a large magazine company, even though everyone told him he wouldn't succeed. Even his high school art teacher told him he would never succeed in art. But despite these derogatory remarks, he continued and followed his dreams.
