My hero is my dad. He lost his job in management my senior year of high school and struggled to find a new job. He found one, working as a delivery man for a dry cleaning company. This job is a big step down from the management field, but he works as hard as he can to be the best at it and to earn the wages he can to take care of his family the best he can. He works overtime doing menial labor jobs, like sorting hangers, just so I can have a few spending dollars in college. The value of hard work never meant so much to me until realizing what my dad does.
