Be Inspired. A page of positive role models

Hello, and welcome to my page! There are so many people in this world, that I am so inspired by, in everything that I do, from sports, to everyday things, like cooking. Let's see what you can discover.

Deaf/blind role models

Helen keller
Helen Keller

Helen Keller has my favorite quote in the whole world. Since she was deaf and blind, she could not judge poeple on what the looked like. She only judged them by their character. She is not like you and me. She was 87 when she died. She died with a great education, and amazing knowlege for her surroundings.

Cece Belle is a author, who just won the state of Illinois Bluestem. But she's not any normal auothor. She is Deaf! She wrote an empowering auto biogrophy, called El Defo, about her own life, school, and friends. It is also agraphic novel

A picture from her book.

Luis Braille

Louis Braille invented a system of raised dots that helps blind people to read and write. Louis Braille was born on January 4, 1809 in Coupvray, France. The son of a harness-maker, Braille was blinded by an accident when he was three. Educated at the National Institute for Blind Youth in Paris, Braille developed a raised-dot code that enabled blind people to read and write. When Braille was three years old, he injured one of his eyes with an awl (a sharp tool used to make holes in leather). Both his eyes eventually became infected, and by the time Braille was five, he was completely blind. Braille spent three years—from ages 12 to 15—developing a system. His system had only six dots — three dots lined up in each of two columns. He assigned different combinations of dots to different letters and punctuation marks, with a total of 64 symbols.

Now, lets see about some sports legends, that didn't always have an amazing life.

Simone Biles, at the Rio Olympics, 2016

Pat Tillman

Pat Tillman in the army

Pat Tillman was an ammzing football player, who enlisted in the afganastan war. He sadly gave his life to this country, and died from a fire in 2004.

Ted Williams

Ted Williams was one of those people that was a natural at just about everything that they did.

"Teddy Ballgame" was a 19-time All-Star in the big leagues, and was also dedicated to his country through military service as well.

Williams took part in 39 combat missions as a pilot in both World War II and the Korean War.

We may never see another man like him again in Major League Baseball.

Jim Abbott

Former MLB pitcher Jim Abbott was a talented athlete, but he had one glaring problem.

He was born without a right hand.

The ex-California Angels pitcher didn't let this bother him, as he still was able to win 87 games in his 11-year big league career.

Jessie Owens

While ww2 was brewing, 1 runner blew everyone away. His name was Jessie Owens, and, dispite Hitlers image of white skined, blue eyed, humans, Jessie was african amarican! He snagged 4 gold medals in the 1936 Berlin olympics.

Cooking can be an amazing way to relax and have fun. but there are so many role models that inspired kids, (like Me!) to cook/bake.

This year there is a new baker in town! But she's not any baker, she's a 13 year old kid, who just won the kids baking chapionship! She won 25,000 dollers. Rebeeca Bale, has inspired me to bake.

Rebecca Bale, at the compitition

Has anyone seen one of the funniest cooking shows, worst cooks in America? THis show is about HORRIBLE cooks, who can't make a sandwich correctly. Chef Anne Burelle, And Rachel Ray, are the Judges. By the end, 2 chefs are worst cooks no more. Sme thing the chefs make are chiken pram, and seared mahi-mahi. They could inspire some people (who are NOT the best shefs in the world,) to learn how to cook.
