I can't really say I have one person in particular. When I was younger I modeled myself after peers that were "cool" and "bad asses". As I got older I started modelling myself after people that were smart, nice and successful. Once in awhile the hood or bad ass side of me comes out and people don't know what to think. BTW being 120 lbs back then I was never much of a bad ass ha ha. Looking back there were a few people that no doubt were a positive influenced on me. Yes even those bad kids I used to associate with had some good attributes. There was no single person however that I can call a role model.
I think positive role models are important. I think if that guy that shot those kids in CT had a few, things would have turned out differently.
