If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be and why?
"I chose integrity because I think the manliest thing a man can do is set a good example for all those in his life and around him and without integrity one cannot set a good example for others. Integrity to me is being true to your word the best you can, doing what’s right even though another way may be more convenient, taking responsibility when you could just as easy pass the buck to someone else, and staying true to who you are at your core even when the world tries its best to bring you down to its level. Without integrity in his life a man is but a shell of what he can truly be."

Who is the manliest person you know and why?
"The manliest man I know is without a doubt my father. He’s been the guiding light in my life and through his teachings I’ve learned many things. He has taught me to be myself, to be a good and hardworking person, and at the end of the day as long as I’ve tried my best that is the main thing that matters. So when you try and put that all into one word, the only word I can think of is; Integrity. That is why my father is the manliest man I know, he’s the one that taught me integrity above all else."
