My Hopkinton Hero is Ms. Erin Mahoney
Nominated by: Mirabella Paolucci
She's my hero because she tells girls they can make a difference in their lives whenever they want to. She does it by telling girls that they can be strong no matter what. She makes them scream "I am fabulous!" or "I am excellent!" and expressions like that. It makes us feel excited and joyful. She tells girls that you should believe in what your heart tells you. Ms. Mahoney makes girls feel like they are very special to the world and not just one little piece of it.
