Dwayne “ The Rock” Johnson is a famous action movie star and a professional wwe wrestler. After he performs on live tv shows and he acts on movies like Fast and Furious, Hercules, and Tooth Fairy. One way the Rock also known as Dwayne Johnson influences me, is that he shows others to keep your head up and there is always a point where someone wanted to give up but he always says don’t give up.
I respect the “Rock” because he left the wwe in wrestlemania 29 after he wrestled John Cena for the world heavyweight championship. Also why I respect him because there is some movies he didn’t want to act because he “ torn adductor and torn abdominal muscle and it kept him out of wwe and acting Dilbert Ryan.” Some people …show more content…
I think the Rock will influence others because there are kids out there who want to be a wrestler or a actor even both. “My goal was never to be the loudest or the craziest, it was to be the most entertaining Dwayne Johnson”.

Writing the Book on Being a Hero
A hero is someone who overcomes obstacles and inspires others. “Often people think of heroes as sports stars or world leaders, but they can also be authors. Maya Angelou is a hero” ( 501 Writing Prompts).
Maya’s autobiography, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, shows the challenges she faced and overcame in her difficult life. While being raised by her grandmother in “a town in Arkansas” that was “racially divided,” she “meets a woman who shows her how to read” and she loves reading because she is good at it ( 501 Writing Prompts).
While Angelou’s race made her a target of racism, she chooses not to be a victim; instead, she is a survivor. “She was raped by a relative, abandoned by her mother, and becomes a mother herself” (501 Writing Prompts). Like most heroic women, she is courageous and determined to give her son a better life than she had.
Maya Angelou is a great person and truly heroic. Her story inspires others to not give up.
