What is a hero? I think a hero is someone who isn't afraid to be their self, someone who can make you laugh, a person that you can look up to and admire their success. I also think a hero is someone who has grow up in a very hard like can still show you that life is fun and worth living. That is why I chose Jim Carrey to be the hero I write about.

To raise a little extra money Jim took an after school job working eight hour shifts every single day, and his family began living on a relatives lawn out of a Volkswagen van. He has been married twice and has one daughter with his first wife.
I really like Jim because he is an outgoing person who can add a sense of humor to anything from ego and insecurity to feminine sensitivity. Even when there are hard times and life is tough he is still...
