To be Batman, you don't need to be from the planet Krypton, or be bitten by a radioactive spider. With simple perseverance (and an inheritance equivalent to the US defence budget), Bruce Wayne the lonely orphan turned himself into Gotham City's champion of justice. I respect Batman because personal struggle fuels his crime-fighting. He is imperfect like the rest of us, only with gadgets and a mask.

My hero is Audrey Hepburn, famous for her acting skills and pretty face. I adore her although my interest lies in the theatre rather than film. It is important that one follows what they want to do, and I think Audrey is one of my favourite role models.
