My highschool art teacher. I loved her. I have her on my fb. She is a spunky lil lady. I had her all through high school. My senior year I had her for my first 3 hours. She retired my senior year, so I arragned for the kids to throw her a retirement party! She was completely surprised!

My grandma was a powerful role model in my life.  She exhibited unconditional love and family was her top priority.  She had strength like no other woman I have ever met.  I told her numerous times how important she is, how much I love her, and what a wonderful woman she was.  She passed away this month and I am greatly missing this wonderful woman.

I really wasn't really aware of any one that I wanted to grow up and follow in their footsteps.  I had a few supportive teachers, but I don't recall any adult really mentoring me, or supporting me beyond the typical expectations. 

When I met my first boyfriend while in high school, he was two years older and far more knowledgeable about the workings of the world.  He came from old wealth, a powerful family with means a resources to do things unimaginable to most people.  He had traveled a great deal of his young life, seeing the world, experiencing things most don't.  He knew so many people that most only read about in newspapers or see on TV.  He did teach me a lot of things.  Influenced my viewpoints (primarily by teaching me how to educate and think for myself).  He was probably the greatest and most positive role model I've ever had.  And even 25+ years later his friendship has been immeasurably valuable to me as a sounding board.

My grandpa is my role model. I love him so much and he is the best man ever. I also looked up to one of my dads gf's. She was a single, strong, independent woman.

Wow, that's a hard question. I really don't know. My cousin was, but I am sure there were more.
