    As a biology student and humanist, Charles Darwin has always been an inspiration of mine.

    Its also widely noted too now that he suffered from severe OCD all this life and as a lifelong severe sufferer myself, I can relate and also understand some of his behaviours and notes that were seen by others as erratic and obsessional. Throughout his struggling with his physical and mental health, he managed to establish a theory that has given a lot of us a reason and explanation for the biodiversity found on Earth and a greater understanding into our own species and our history.

    Nikola Tesla and Marie Curie are both honourable mentions too :yep:
