We all have a hero. Someone we look up to. Someone who inspires us. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Optimum and Univision are proud to celebrate Hispanic heroes. Whether it is a civil rights activist, pop culture icon, or someone you know personally, heroes bring us hope when we need it the most.

In 500 words or less, tell us about a Hispanic person, past or present, who you consider to be a hero and explain why.
