To be specific pick a heroes. (Any contemporary hero will do, pick a public figure.)
1) Identify this hero's characteristics. This discussion should not be limited to his or her personal character, but should include some discussion of how he or she influences the larger context: family, community, workplace, and society.
2) Explain how and why you emulate this person, and in what areas of your life.
3) Draw parallels between this individual and one or more mythological figures, and
4) Hypothesize how this individual might be mythologized by future generations.
By addressing the questions, this solution applies myths, mythological thinking, and mythological perspectives to a contemporary figure. Supplemented with the hisotry of Nelson Mandala.
