Personal Life
Paul and his former girlfriend had a child named Meadow. Shockingly, he was never married.
He had a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
His first passion was a Marine Biologist. He starred on the National Geographic Channel. He caught tagged sharks for seven days.
He made an organization called ROWW ( Reach Out World Wide) to help people in need when a natural disaster occurs around them.
The quote represents that he loves to be around cars. He is an adrenaline junkie. He loves having his heart "racing". He is stating if he were to die of a car crash, he would not be upset, he would be smiling saying it's ok because he had fun. He would probably rather die in a car then in a bed. Unfortunately and ironic he died in a car crash.
ROWW

1973-2013
1. In what ways was Paul Walker's life remarkable?
His life was remarkable because he is the good-looking, life-saving, actor on The Fast and the Furious.
He is known for the organization ROWW for saving people's lives from natural disasters. He was also a great actor and his popularity was and still is high because of his extraordinary actions.
2. Did Paul Walker make any major mistakes or bad decisions? If so, what were they and how would you have chosen and acted differently if you were in his shoes?
My opinion, he didn't make any bad decisions. I think he made a great impact on other people with establishing the ROWW consortium. He risked his life helping others. I would be proud of myself If anything, he made smart decisions.
3. Which quality or trait was most beneficial.
The most beneficial trait is his drive in himself to accomplish something. Without his drive, he wouldn't of made the corporation (ROWW) to save people's lives. Without his drive, he would not have had the anticipation of playing a role in movies. His personality helped him the most because he loved feeling adrenaline. He said, "without pushing yourself to the limit and trying your best, what is the point of attempting".
4. What are the two or three most important lessons you or any other young person might learn from the way this person lived?
A lesson is never believe that the script you are chosen to portray represents yourself of your skills and talents. This means that even if everything is alright in the movie, doesn't mean it can't happen in real life. Another lesson is don't take life for granted because it can disappear in a blink of an eye. Paul didn't take his life for granted, but he died doing the thing he loves, speeding fast in a car. As Tim McGraw said" live like you were dying". If everyone did, this world would be a better place.

5. An older person or mentor is often very important in shaping the lives of people by providing guidance and encouragement. To what extent was this true of your person?Explain
This statement was very true because he had a lot of fans look up to him. They were all very devastated to hear that he died. He was a very good actor that most people wanted to be. He had different ways of playing a role of a character. When he made the ROWW foundation, he changed a lot of peoples outlook on him. It showed that he cared. He was a great role model for other citizens because of his hard work to save somebody's life.
6. What do you think it means to be a hero? Was you r person a "hero"? Why? Why not? How is a hero different from a celebrity?

To be a hero, you have to be brave. You have to stand out in the crowd all of the time. Paul Walker was a hero. He made an organization to help people in need from a natural disaster. He established food and toy drives for kids in need. The difference between a hero and a celebrity is a celebrity may do charity work,but they would get a profit off of doing it. They do it for money, not people. A hero does it because they care. Just like Paul Walkers non-profit foundation, he put forth time and effort to help people. Therefore, he is a hero
7. If you could have provided your person with one piece of advice during his lifetime, what would it have been and why?

The one piece of advice I would give to Paul Walker is to never speed even though that's what you role play in. Just because it doesn't happen in the movie, doesn't mean it can't happen in real life. Whenever it comes to cars, even if your an expert at racing, always take drivers safety seriously. If I would of told him that before he took that turn, he would still be alive and acting.
8. What quote best represents the life of Paul Walker? Identify the quote and explain its significance.
The quote that represents Paul Walker is " You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae". This best represents his life because he didn't care how is life ended up. He wanted to make sure that everyone else is alright. That is why he made the ROWW foundation. He wanted other peoples lives to be better and easier for them.
Paul Walker died on November 30,2013 at the age of 40. He and his friend Roger Rodas were on the way to a Reach Out World Wide charity event to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan i the Philippines.
