Who is your role model

Updated on January 30, 2012

This has been on my mind lately. I have read a lot of articles about this topic lately because there are so many teens out there that looks towards other people to base their life on. Many of them focus on the celebrities that they like and that they really admire the most. Some even go as far as dressing like their role model or even acting like them. But the one question that pops into my head is, are celebrities the best role models?
Everytime I went to school and teachers would ask us that question, so many faces would just start popping into my head. However, I would close my eyes and I knew who were my role models. The three most important people in my life, God, my dad and my mom. Not a lot of people can say that now and days. They seem to choose people who always seem to make changes in their life.
The reason why God is an important role model for me is because I grew up at church and my family raised me knowing that if I put God into my heart and mind, I would be able to know what to do as I grew up into a responsible adult. They knew that I would be able to choose between right and wrong when it came time to that.
Both of my parents are great role models because thanks to them I am able to know what to do in life and they are always with me whether is it when something good happens or something bad happens in my life. They know when to talk to me and to tell me how to get back to the path I need to get on.
Role models shape a person into what they will be as they grow up for most of the people. Do you have roles models in your life? Who makes the best role model?

      Dancilla, great hub and great topic....i know what you mean by many people constantly looking up to celebrities as role models. I can say they were my parents but that was later in my life. As a kid my role models were comic book super heroes. The Punisher was one. I know...that's sick...hahaha!

      Without a doubt it was my father; his words echo in my head constantly, guiding me along forty-three years after his death....good hub!
