What does it mean to be a celebrity or hero today? Are there different representations of celebrity and hero identity? And have you ever encountered, in writing or in person, something or someone that has upended your expectation of what it means to be a celebrity or hero? How might you present a meaningful profile of a celebrity or hero and share with others this reflection? After studying and discussing various profile forms—both written, audio, and visual forms—you will research and create a profile in the sub-genre of your choosing for a specific outlet (magazine, radio show, etc.) of your choosing, profiling a celebrity or hero you consider to be an unexpected representative of what it means to be a celebrity or hero.
