15. Rochelle Riley

OK, so I haven't talked to her in awhile. But people have heroes. Rochelle Riley is my hero.

She's quotable.

She's real.

She has always inspired me. Well, always, meaning since I was 17.

She's a columnist formerly for The Courier-Journal and more recently the Detroit Free Press. Our paths crossed when I was in a high school journalism workshop she organized. She inspired then and has continued to, usually through her words.

(Those are her two books pictured above.)
