"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."

@sydney There's a few that particularly inspire me. Steve Irwin was my childhood hero, I was completely devastated when he died. I also have a soft spot for Georges Sioui since I had him as a prof my first year of uni and he genuinely wanted everyone in his class to do well and succeed not just in the classroom but in life as well. I find Queen Rania inspiring because of how socially active she is, and her sense of style is amazing (if I could steal a celebrity's wardrobe I would definitely take hers). And I find Demi Lovato very inspiring since she has been so open about her mental health struggles. Who do you find inspiring?
