Everyone has a role model in this world. Whether it’s your mum or dad, grandma, uncle or a famous personality, these people play an important role in your life. They are the ones who seem to have an immense power over you, so much so that they can change the way you think and encourage you to follow their lead working towards a better life – or at least in some cases.
