A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: A woman admired for her courage, achievements, or noble qualities.
A blend of she + hero, from Latin heros (a demigod or man with heroic qualities; [plural: heroes]), from Greek heros. Ultimately from the Indo-European root ser- (to protect), which also gave us conserve, observe, preserve, and reserve. Earliest documented use: 1836.
“When I met you in New York, you were my shero. I wanted to be you.”
