Every day for my entire life I have been my own hero. I had to be because there was no one else to fill the role. I grew up with examples of the kind of person I did NOT want to be. So, it is like with sculpting, I just cut away all the parts that were not what I wanted to be and was left with the kind of person I can be proud of. I have had to rescue myself from situations and difficulties that a lot of people would have given up on. I am my own hero as daft as that may sound.
