Truthfully, I do admire quite a few people. Mostly long since dead people, or scientists, or mathematicians, or artists, or hardcore Christians, or a combination of some or all of the above.
Temple Grandin, however, has the distinction of being both alive and somebody I actually may have to chance to meet one day. I admire her greatly, I think that is obvious, but her accomplishments have permanently and undeniably changed me, and resonate with me more than most others I admire. It’s kind of tough to explain the details, but it’s something I felt like I had to say.
In conclusion, I just want everyone to know, she rocks! :D
And if you don’t know who she is, look her up. It’s worth your time.
