Who is a person you admire and why?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"One person that I admire is Dr. Tererai Trent, a woman who made her dreams come true. From being raised in war-torn Zimbabwe to earning her education, coming to the USA, and eventually becoming someone that Oprah Winfrey labeled as an influential person, she has influenced millions to follow any dream, no matter how impossible it may seem."
Example #2
"I most admire my father because his work ethic is second to none. He taught me to always be reliable, on time, and a person of my word."
Example #3
"One person that I admire is the professor I had in my Economics class. Her teaching style was relatable, and she always had time for her students. As an aspiring manager, I want to emulate those same qualities of openness, and helpfulness."
Example #4
"I greatly admire the work of Seth Godin. He's a sales, business, and marketing genius. I have followed his blog for many years now. He started his empire with only $20,000 and is essentially the father of permission marketing."
Example #5
"I admire my older sister. I have always looked up to her but especially now in adulthood as I saw her overcome a learning disability to become a very respected artist and painter. It is inspiring how she tackles her goals and lets nothing stand in her way."
Example #6
"My parents came to this country when they were in their mid-30s, knowing no English and starting from the bottom. My dad delivered pizzas even though he was a high ranking military official with an economics degree. He did what he needed to do for us to thrive in the USA. He moved his way up through various jobs including teaching himself how to write code. Not only is he so hardworking and selfless, but he is also kind to everyone he meets. He is a "friend to all," as he says."
Example #7
"One of the most influential people to me is Martin Luther King, Jr. Being a visible minority, and with dreams to be an educator, I found his messages to be infinitely inspiring and uplifting."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
