My mum: she was one of the few women who went to university then abroad to Paris to continue her study in art, married my father, a foreigner, and went to live in Sri Lanka in a time when Japanese women were not supposed to do any of these things. So although I bicker with her over many things, the one thing she instilled in me was that I didn't need to follow other people's life plans and I admire her immensely for that.

Caroline Herschel - she was incredibly adaptable, going from being a housemaid in Hanover to singing in the high society of Bath to becoming an astronomical assistant & successful astronomer in her own right! I think her adaptability is what I admire most about her.
