Ellen DeGeneres, obviously, is a huge role model. She’s been a role model for me for a long time. My family goes to Disney World every year, and she’s in the beginning of the Universe of Energy ride, and she talks about energy. And that has been so inspiring for me since I was four years old, and I loved her, and actually, about two years ago is when I found out she’s gay. I had no idea! She’s been a role model for me since before I even knew anything. It was great to find out that she was a lesbian and she supported this. I have loved her since I could walk.
