A hero is: intelligent, selfless, courageous, modest, brave, kind, caring, noble, forgiving, and calm in the face of danger.
Heroes, like Alexander Hamilton, have strict morals as to how they live their lives. By adhering to these principles they determine what is right and what is wrong, a quality that defines a hero.
Like this image suggests, Hamilton was a classic rags-to-riches story. He grew up in a family that was poor and unemployed. He did not have anything except his intelligence, but he studied and worked hard to give himself a new life. He was so determined that he got himself a scholarship to King's College in America.
This is yet another reason why Hamilton is my hero. From almost nothing, Hamilton worked and worked to make himself a better life. This is deeply inspirational to me, especially because he used his intelligence to give people a good government. Hard-working and determination are key traits of a hero.
