Chris – I’ve always been a big fan of Chuck Yeager. I read a biography of him, and I think that’s when I became a huge fan of aviation. (Side note: I’d like to get my pilot’s license one day.) Yeager was a WWII fighter pilot and was the first pilot to break the sound barrier.
Jess – Audrey Hepburn is one of my heroes. She always seemed so graceful, and I loved her in movies. Like Chris, I read a biography of her in high school. I was inspired by her perseverance and volunteerism.
