Michael remains at the top the list because of his ability to break many cultural barriers in his basketball career and as an entrepreur.

4) Ruth Bader-Ginsberg

I admire RBG for her strength and perseverance in a time when few women were accepted into law school. She advocated for gender equality and women's rights. She is the 2nd female justice to be confirmed by the Supreme Court.
