KSDK - This week, along with our partners at the Today Show, we're asking the question: who inspired you?

It could be a family member, a friend, a coach, maybe even a pet! Let us know! Post a pic on our KSDK Facebook page if you can.

To kick off the conversation, we're sharing who inspired us.

Today in St. Louis anchor Pat McGonigle points to a professor at Saint Louis University, Dr. Avis Meyer, Ph.D.

"Avis loves language, writing, great story-telling and old-fashioned, hard nosed journalism," Pat said.

Dr. Meyer encouraged Pat to write for SLU's University News back in 1992. And Pat has worked in a newsroom ever since.

Think about it: there must be that someone who set your life on its current course. We'd love to hear about it!

You can use the hashtag #InspiredBy.
