My life hero is… my Dad!?!?

We all have those people in our life who we deem heroes. Some may be our parents or maybe our closest friends. We also have those people we think of as role models–from our brothers and sisters, to our cousins and neighbors. We also have people in our life who we think of a space-waster or meaningless object. We all have those people we love, hate, and love to hate.

As for me, my life hero is Arjan van Ham (my dad). He is my hero because he has done many things, from telling me right from wrong to saving my life, multiple times! Some things that he does for fun include programming, talking with his family, building and creating things. He is also my inspiration, and why I began programming, and puzzle games.

Arjan van Ham was working for a small company that you may have heard of, Philips. His job allowed him move into America! Once he was here, he switched jobs from Philips, to Bunchball, to Internap, to Verizon. With all of these job cycles, comes a lot of drama–the full range from a popped balloon, to four kids!

When asked how it feels to be a life hero, Arjan responded with, “I’m very proud to hear that I’ve positively affected someone’s life.

I’m very proud to hear that I’ve positively affected someone’s life.”

— Arjan van Ham

He also said that if he could positively affect more people, he would.

With all these people in our life, just remember there will always be those people we think are life heros. But, it turns out, some of these people really push us down. Then we have those heros, but these do not go into the street and scream at the top of their lungs, “I’m a hero!” and boast about it. Then we have the people who are a hero and know it. These people make it possible to do anything.

    The overall article was great, but the title was a little extreme with the question marks and exclamation points. It makes it seem like you are surprised that your dad is a hero to you.
