Who have been the most inspirational people of the 20th Century?
We asked our teachers:
If you could meet anybody (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
Jesus Christ….. I think it´d be very interesting to know if he seemed like some other type of being… or Gautama Buddah…. someone who could tell me something useful
Princess Diana for all the good work that she did.
Perhaps the most difficult question yet. Tracy Chapman is an idol, I´d love to meet her… or perhaps my maternal grandfather who sounded like a very interesting man. He died when my mum was 18. Both boring answers really, sorry!
I would love to meet Albert Einstein, not only to quiz him about science but also because he was such a fun person and had met so many other people in his life time. I´m sure he would have anecdotes and stories about everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Adolf Hitler!
Hans Solo. He is absolutely gorgeous and he’s the coolest, most adventurous, daring pilot I’ve ever heard of.
Leonardo Da Vinci, to learn the secrets of one of the greatest minds.
Steven Hawkins, because he has one of the most powerful minds of our time. He also has the ability to explain very complicated concepts in a comprehensive way.
I’d like to meet Muntadar al-Zaidi, the guy who threw a shoe at George Bush at a press conference in Iraq, and shake his hand. Brilliant!
It would be cool to meet Ernest Hemingway, just to see if he’s the same as his reputation.
