Well, after today there’s only one left. Today’s hero’s journey is Yul Brenner.
Yul is a character from the movie Cool Runnings. The movie centers around a group of Jamaican men who have a very great desire to represent their country in the Olympics. The only way to do this after three of them are tripped in a qualifying round is to go as the first Jamaican bobsled teams.

Today we have Hercules, from the Disney movie of the same name.
This is probably my favorite Disney movie. I love the story, the animation, and I can really relate to Hercules. Like most teenagers, I was very awkward. Hercules was too…he was clumsy and really didn’t fit in anywhere.
I remember not fitting in throughout elementary and middle school. Do any of you feel like that sometimes?
