Role models can also be the person who differentiates themselves in such a way that other admire and try to imitate them as a person. Common role models includes well renowned personalities such as celebrities, actors, public icons such as politicians, authors, sport stars et cetera.

My role model is Steven Gerrard. He has influenced my life in many ways. He has taught me to never give up even when the odds are against us. He has taught me to never lose hope even if we are in a critical situation but to rise up every time we fall. He has taught me to be a good leader and to respect everyone. He has taught me a lot about life, especially how to take responsibility for my actions. I want to be a good leader like him in the upcoming days.

Steven Gerrard was born on 30th May, 1980 in Whiston, Merseyside. The town is about 8 kms to the east of the city of Liverpool. He was brought up in neighboring Huyton and spent his childhood there. Gerrard or Stevie G as he is called is a natural central midfielder who can play in other positions with equal aplomb. He loves to make darting runs from the centre of the park into the striking area and his long range passing and shooting, coupled with his tackling ability makes him a player every manager would love to have in their side. Gerrard attended the Cardinal Heenan Catholic high school in West Derby, Liverpool. Unlike Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Jamie Carragher and other famous Liverpool players who were childhood Everton fans, Gerrard was a Kopite from the beginning and joined his beloved club as a trainee when he was a school boy. He rose through the ranks quickly and made his debut as a substitute for Norwegian Vegard Heggem against Blackburn on 30th November 1998. His first full debut came against Celta Vigo in the UEFA Cup

    A role model is someone who people look up to as an idol, someone whom many people want to be like, based of his or her good deeds and intentions.

    As explained in The Ghost Map by Steve Johnson, during the 1850’s in London, there was a devastating cholera epidemic. At the time no one really knew what cholera was. All anyone was able to do was panic and make up theories. What they did know about cholera was just what they witnessed. Citizens would see their loved ones have severe cases of almost clear diarrhea with white specks, referred to as rice stool, and then die within days or even hours. John Snow and Henry Whitehead came along to end the crisis using a different approach. They looked at the facts and collected evidence through interviews and surveys of the town. John Snow and Henry Whitehead’s scientific approach to investigating cholera helped them to end the epidemic in London during the 1850’s.…
