Your Answers: “Who inspires you?”

In this episode, We speak with inspiring high school football players. And Mary shares about Ohio's early female athletes and explains how Title IX opened the door for females to compete in all sorts of sports! For our Write In Question this week we want to know: “Who inspires you?”


Dear Newsdepth,
Who inspires me is... me I am funny and smart I'm even in a gifted class. I also like to sing, I see a song then I want to learn it. I like to draw too. I think of a title then I make a chapter book. I dream about things that nobody would think of. I'm creative, fun, imaginative,cool And kind. I'm glad I inspired myself!

— Allure, Greenview Middle School

Dear NewsDepth,
Leonardo da Vinci inspires me because I didn't like drawing until I saw the Mona Lisa. That is what inspires me to draw. 

— Omari, Monticello Middle School

My older brother's name is Landon. He's always telling me to keep going and never quit. He always cheers me on and congratulates. He always stops what he's doing to come help me practice.He's been helping me reach my goal to make the WNBA.

— Emma, Tallmadge Elementary

Dear NewsDepth,

The people who inspire me are my family because when I lost in the championship my family cheered me up and made me feel better. My dad and mom said you will be a good football player when you grow up.


— Caden, Fort Meigs Elementary

We are inspired by Jordan Chiles. We are inspired by her because she went to the Olympics, and THEN she went to college. Jordan Chiles also made up a floor routine in TWO days and competed that routine against rivals and got A PERFECT TEN ON IT!!! As you can see, Jordan Chiles is a BIG inspiration to us, and probably many other young girls like us!
