Izuku is on his laptop. He's stuck. He doesn't know what to write about.

Aizawa had his class write a short essay on what it means to be a hero.

Most of his classmates have already turned in the essay early and received a good grade on it. But for some reason Izuku is stumped. He asked Kacchan for help but the only response he got was to write about what he saw in All Might.

"But that's too generic! Everyone would write about All Might then." Izuku said.

Katsuki shrugged. He already turned the essay and is waiting for his grade back.

Izuku ended up turning in his essay late so he lost some points. However, it was the best essay Aizawa had read after giving the same prompt to his previous students.

What does it mean to be a Hero. By Izuku Midoryia.

Being a hero is more than just stopping crime. It's about caring for your community. This includes people, animals, and nature.

A hero shouldn't care about fame. I believe the best heroes are the ones that don't get the recognition they deserve.

It's past midnight, and Aizawa couldn't stop himself from rereading Izuku's essay.

"Problem Child." Aizawa chuckled, sipping on his coffee.

He's proud of Izuku.
