      I’ve given other answers to this previously, but there was a guy called Joseph Pilates who was born with all sorts of things wrong with him. He developed a series of exercises and effectively cured himself, getting really strong. I’ve had a problem with my back recently (it’s an age thing) and his exercises have really helped me too.
      I suppose it’s really anyone who is persistent and keeps going in spite of difficulties.

      Lots of people! Mainly those who are determined, strong, and do good things for other people and for the world. And people who have an open mind and never lose their sense of curiosity 🙂

      People who are passionate about what they believe in. It doesn’t matter what – could be painting fences, riding horses or being a scientist. I love people who can talk for hours about their favourite subject 🙂

      I am inspired by the leader of the contaminated land department within my company. He sees what he does as more than just his job and is always eager to learn more about his science and even though he definitely knows more than everyone else in the team he listens to what people have to say and will respect your ideas.

      Kids inspire me!
      It’s very easy to be sad when you are aware of what we have done/are doing to the planet. But when I go into schools I see that you guys are really passionate about the environment and want to change things the for better! I get lots of really good questions that give me new ideas – that inspires me.
