Firstly my mum, because she encourages me to be a good person every day. Secondly Liz Pichon, author of Tom Gates. Not only did she write it, but she drew all the pictures too! Her books are creative and funny.


Elena Gil, 52,

My sister because she’s always by my side and I would give my life for her. Also my daughter, she’s my number one.



Max Pichon, 20
Waiter at Bridge Bar & Grill

Edna Mode from The Incredibles, because when I was a child I was getting bullied and in the movie she shouts at Mr Incredible who was at least ten times her size. It made me think, “I can do the same” to the people who were bullying me.

My mum. I’m a needy middle child so she organises my life on a continuous basis. Unfortunately I didn’t inherit her dancing skills. She also loves choir with her choir girls, and skipping lunch in favour of a big cake. She always has a smile on her face, no matter what.


Lindsey Carter, 41
Counter Medicine Assistant at Ocean Pharmacy

Probably my mum because she’s been with me through thick and thin and she has been a pillar in my life.





Anthony Morris, 30
Vice President at Lottoland

The Late Nanna Hindes inspired me! She was exceptionally friendly and fun. She once started a water-fight with my friends in her house, and never ever seemed to complain – despite multiple gardening accidents. I think her warmth and positivity is why she lived to grand old age of 96!


Kelly Whelan
General Manager at Little Bay

Mother Theresa, because she was selfless and donated her whole life to other people and loved everybody as if they were her own children.




Alan Palao, 49
Director at Property Zone

All of my female colleagues, because they work so hard and they make going to work fun!
