Almost nineteen years ago, a HIV positive married mother named Mary Fisher steeped out on faith and gave a speech on the effects of AIDS on her and her family at the 1992 Republican National Convention. Her main goal was to not inform the audience at the convention but the world of the silence surrounding the discussion of AIDS. She emphasizes the problems AIDS was causing and the future problems it will cause if we do not educate ourselves about this disease. Mary Fisher uses her own personal HIV diagnosis as a powerful tool to draw in her audience and get her point across.

Her help around the world caused her to be national icon. Her social betterment to the world caused everyone else to make the best of our lives and help other people.

She kept the class up and interested in the topic. Dr. Ingram’s word choice was great as well. If I had to grade Dr. Ingram on her presentation, I would give her an A because not only was she engaging with the audience, she made it interesting. Everything that was presented was easy to understand, and if she used an unfamiliar word, she made sure we knew what it meant. Dr. Ingram inspired not only me, but the other students to want to take a trip to Egypt one day, and experience the same adventures that she
Experiencing the works of Britney first hand is the most amazing feeling in the world. The way that she moved up on stage and got the crowd going really made me look up to her as a role model. Her vocals and the way she interacted with us made it such an enjoyable experience. If I had to choose to see anyone in the world for my first concert I would say her name without hesitation.

My role model is someone close to my age who unlike most celebrities, wasn't afraid to admit that she is human and needed help. Not only did she seek out help, she openly shared her experiences and has encouraged many other girls facing the same problems she had to seek help themselves. With her hit single "Skyscraper" she details that yes, life pushed her down but she's rising again like a skyscraper. This is the life of my biggest inspiration, Demi Lovato, and how she has made an impact on my life. Demi Lovato was born August 20, 1992 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and was raised in Dallas, Texas.
