Who had the most positive influence on you?

Corny as it sounds? My parents. My Dad was the reason I got into IT. He was never a "follow in my footsteps" kind of person, but when I picked up an interest in it, he was incredibly supportive.
My mother is a different story - she's the reason I'm as staunchly feminist as I am. She was the one who said that I can do whatever I wanted and to not let anything hold me back. She's where I get my stubbornness from - though I'd like to think it's slightly diluting a little through the generations! I don't think I'd be the kind of person I am - strong-willed, forthright, open - if it wasn't for her.
