Who did I admire as a child?


Today's Writing Prompt: Admiration

Who did you look up to / admire as a child?

When I was growing up I remember reading biographies of women who became nurses or doctors. Among the ones I admired most were Florence Nightingale and Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell. I was fairly certain I was going to enter the medical field when I grew up. Unfortunately I discovered I didn't have the stomach for it. The sight of wounds or vomit just make me ill.
