"Someone you can look up to, someone who tries to do the right thing," said Steven Kent.
He is describing a role model and what he hopes other people see in him.
He's an athlete and a mentor in the local Big Brothers Big Sisters program
"My dad told me about the program and it sounded like a good idea," said Steven. "I had a pretty good upbringing and I wanted to help someone who is less fortunate."
He teaches lacrosse and believes that decisions made off camera is important as well.
Rebecca Hansen, a guidance counselor at Sherando High School, says, children look up to people they admire and it's the role models responsibility to make wise decisions.
"As a student would maybe also look up to a non-professional, it's not always just what they do in their career, but also their own personal character and how they are outside of their career," she said.
Rebecca believes everyone has to do their part.
"Their parents, the community in general, to some extent the school because they spend so much of their day here," she said.
When Steven shows up for work, he not only does his job, but goes above and beyond everyday since he became a big brother.
He says even though role models are great at what they do, they have to make better decisions behind the scenes.
"I don't really think that takes away from the raw talent they have," he said. "It just simply goes to their personal life, but of course everyone's going to find out about that because you're in the media."
