    As a teenager myself, my idol just so happens to be a member of One Direction. In particular, Liam Payne. I've been so inspired by each and every one of the members of this band. They're absolutely amazing and they're living their dreams at this very moment. Liam's story happens to touch me the most because he didn't stop pursuing his dreams after being turned away. Even though he was let down before, he came back stronger & auditioned once again. Now look where he is...a member of one of the biggest, best boybands in the world! He inspires to me to continue chasing my dreams no matter what anyone says. He inspires me not to give up. He inspires me to never ever let anyone crush my dreams. He has shown me that even the wildest of my wild dreams can become reality right before my eyes. And for that I love him. Liam James Payne is my idol, my inspiration, my everything.

    Me being a teenager now my role models are currently the new hit group Fifth Harmony. It's so cool how they're the same age as me but also how awesome they're doing being new to the industry. It's awesome being able to look up to girls your own age because you feel like you can connect with them better. They are such humble and down to earth girls who continue to inspire all their fans whether they are girls or boys. I am beyond excited to see them open up for Cher Lloyd. <3 U 5H

    Most people know my role model, Bono, as the lead Singer in U2. But there is more to him than meets the eye. I think that Bono is a hero because (1) he has a great musical career, (2) he has done a lot of humanitarian work especially in Africa, and (3) he is the only person to ever be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, a Grammy, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe.

    As a teenager, I admired Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president. Few individuals in history have as broadly exemplified such qualities as did Abraham Lincoln. Despite hailing from humble origins, he rised to the highest office in the land. He successfully put an end to slavery; his continuous efforts in spite of initial failures inspired me. He believed that our country’s founding promise of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are natural rights equally applicable to ALL people. Lincoln’s acts of kindness and empathy for his fellow countrymen are not only the hallmark of every great leader, but also great lessons for all of us. Lincoln's life continues to bring hope and inspiration to millions in America and around the world.

    My idol, as a kid, was Tom Baker! He was my first Doctor on Doctor Who and he'll always have a special place in my heart :) Jelly baby? :D
