Tasmin's Hero Story
There is nothing more powerful than your origin story. Regardless of time, place or culture, the struggles and heroes of our early life shapes us as adults. That's why it's a value to us to acknowledge and celebrate the story of our Hero Within Family. Tasmin, super fangirl and blog contributor, shares her hero story with us:
Who were your childhood heroes, fictional and in real life and why?
Fictional, as far as I can remember Superman has always been my hero, I've pretty much grown up with it in my life. He stands for everything good and is the epitome of everything all humans should aspire to be like, even if he is an Alien. He goes out of his way to make the world a better place and help those in needs and that's important. And... I wanted to fly! In real life, my mum. She brought me up as a single mother and I can't thank her enough for that. She's the strongest woman I know and one day I hope I'll be able to repay her for all that she's done, all the hours she worked and all the sacrifices she made.
In your opinion, who do you think is the most important hero in pop culture today and why?
Most important, I think is Wonder Woman. Just look at the response of the first film! Superheroes are usually stereotyped as males and its amazing to see women get their chance. All the young girls that she's inspired is incredible. It shows that strong women do exist.
How has our modern era of heroes inspired, influenced, or changed you?
Like I said before, it gives me something to aspire to and to look up to. Really it's changed my life - especially Superman. I have a large collection of Superman items and its become a huge part of my daily life, so its changed me that way. But when I saw Wonder Woman, I wanted to be that strong warrior - so I actually took up Sword Fighting so I could be like her.
