My hero is a non-local. His name is Rich Piana. He is a Australian body builder. He is different from other bodybuilders because he actually teaches others on his youtube channel instead of advertising his products for commercial purposes which most bodybuilders does. With his help on youtube, i can train body building better and more effective and can save money on hiring a personal trainer as well. Thanks Rich Piana.
Dad has 3 daughters and he treated every one of us like his princess. Though we are not from a rich family, Dad ensures that we have more than enough to eat, the coolest gadgets and toys to play with. He had never showed favoritism to any 1 particular daughter and he is doted equally on all 3 of us. I love you Daddy!
I don’t think people appreciate construction workers enough. They leave their their family, walked out of their comfort zone just to do labour intensive work in a foreign country. Although they earn more than they could in their country, it is still considered a lowly paid job in Singapore. They have sacrificied so much just to construct buildings and roads for us. I am deeply grateful for their sacrifices.
My teacher Mr. Ee Cher is my hero. He was my form teacher and being in an all boys school, it is never easy. All the boys are so hard to handle but Mr. Ee Cher was so patient. Even when he was super angry he can still tell us nicely and sometimes I wonder where he finds all his patience. He was an old boy of the school, when he started to work as a teacher, he still came back to work and serve the school.
Jose is passionate about playing the drums. However, she is a considerate neighbour. She is aware that her neighbours will be unhappy when she plays the drums, waking them up from their naps in the afternoon and disturbing their sleep at night. She decided to stay back in school to practice drumming at the band room.
When I first met Yan Da during track practice, I would never have imagined being best friends with him. He always kept to himself, but through countless trainings with him, I got to know him better. He trains with so much discipline, I found it hard to keep up with him at the start. He never failed to motivate me and I'm glad I met him.
My son is attending pre school and his form teacher is Miss Ang. She is my hero because he taught my son a lot of things that I couldn't. I could see that he is now more sensible and able to do things to take care of himself. Everyday dealing with young toddlers can be very stressful, yet she is able to cope it and do a great job.
My social studies teacher Mr. Eng is very well informed and actively engages us to think about the subject. He inspires me to learn more about how the Singapore system works, and how each of us can help improve on it, like how our founding fathers has done.
My cousin is my best friend, he is the only son, that is why we are very close to each other. He was my childhood mate since I was born. We used to play catching and hopcotch. I remember when we were playing catching that day, i ran and fell down the drain. He piggy backed me all the way home and tell my mother about it. He is protective of me like a younger brother. He is my childhood best friend.
Nevin loves to write poems, attend plays and anything that involves literature. He saved his money for a good 3 years to travel around the European countries to watch various plays. He told me that every cent was worth it. I am inspired by his eagerness to learn more about literature and I will be joining him on his next trip.
My goal in life is to inspire others like how my school principle did. He was a dynamic person and he was a great leader. All the teachers were inspired by him as well. He should have been a politician rather than a principle. All his ex students till today still mentions his name and will always remember how impactful his assembly speeches were.
There is an old couple that sells newspaper, they worked all their life so that they send their only son to the states to further his studies. On his graduation year, a phone came telling the old couple that their son was killed in a road accident. This was so hard for the old couple and they couldn't accept the reality but they are so strong to look beyond that and look for more positiveness.
