1. Do you have anyone that could be called “a role model”? If yes, explain what you admire him or her.
2. If the answer is “no”, explain why not why you have – in a case where you do – several people as role model.
3. Try to explore and explain the quote by writer Oscar Wilde “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
4. What is the position of media in setting role models for wider public? Do they, to your opinion, rather offer positive or negative options?
5. Were there any role models (in literature, religion, music, art, sports, wars) in the past? If yes, in what form? Can you name some?
