Who is considered as a modern day epic hero?

This person has to be known or did whatever she/he did in the last 5 years. It's for a school project and I can't find anyone. Please help, thanks.

Just a reminder: an epic hero is one who has done a series of good work/deeds when an ordinary man/woman cannot.
