My sis may look small, but she is a giant slayer. She is very gifted in sports and represented the school in 4 different sports. It is amazing that she mastered so many different techniques and skills. Mom always remind her not to neglect her school work while having so many commitments. She has everything covered.
The smallest of actions can inspire someone. While I was walking home after a downpour one day, I witnessed a boy in his primary school uniform picking up a snail in the middle of the pavement and placing it on the grass to prevent it from getting stepped on. His care for something as insignificant as a snail inspired me to have a bigger heart.
I used to do ballet when I was younger, however, I hated it and wanted to quit my classes. What held me back was my instructor, Ms. Elaine. She was a fantastic ballerina and incredibly graceful. But what inspired me to continue with ballet was her passion for it, I wanted to love ballet as much as she did as she always looked so blissful when she danced.
Football is my life. I play everyday with my friends and one day, I felt a sharp pain in my chest and I collapsed. Luckily my good fren knows CPR. He saved me and called the ambulance. Luckily my good friend was there, if not for him I will not be here already.
My hero would be Jia Long. At 28 in the prime of his life and making very good income, he took a no pay leave indefinitely when he found out his only mother had cancer. He placed his whole life on hold in order to take care of her full time. Jia Long always gives and ask for nothing it returns. He is my hero as not many people are able to make that sacrifice and I really respect him for it.
My father was a policeman. He has told me many stories and one of the most memorable one was when he run after a robber who stole from an old lady. My father was so brave and I admire him for saving and protecting the innocent. I asked him many times if he worries one day he may die on duty? His answer was simple. This is my job.
Giving up taking care of the home and pursuing her own dreams were never options for my mum as she had to bring up her children single-handedly after the divorce. She is the most hardworking and determined lady I have ever known; and she taught me self-resilience and how I should always be appreciative. I am thankful and grateful for her contributions to the family.
David Lee was out national goal keeper. He is 6 foot tall and has a very imposing figure. When he playing for Singapore all Malaysian strikers feared him. It is so nice to know that sports can bond Singaporeans together. I can still remember my father will take me to the old Kallang stadium to see David Lee my hero play.
My mom passed away and my dad is the sole breadwinner. He works very hard to support the family. After work he always takes me to the swing and swimming pool during the weekend. We may not be rich but we had a very close relationship. The bond between is something which cannot be describe.
I have known Mdm Hazreena since I moved in to the estate 3 years ago. Every morning when I leave my home for work, I would meet her at the lift where she would bring her disabled grandchild, Ciara for her school or check-ups. I would often see her slinging many bags around her shoulder, having to manage Ciara and look out for her safety. Besides this, Mdm Hazreena also works part-time as a cashier at a supermarket to earn extra income to contribute to the high medical fees incurred for Ciara. For her determination, strength, and unconditional love, she has is a heroine to me.
Dad always loved learning new things. He’s a boisterous guy who always never fail to surprise me. One day I introduced YouTube to him since he thought of trying a new sport called “Rollerblading”. He got a pair of blades and in less than a week after looking at tutorial videos, he did it. He showed me what a man with determination took, and he has taught me a great lesson.
Ming Jie has been an inspiration to be, as he is a hardworking person. He never fails to attend lessons in school and do well for exams, at the same time work tirelessly at wee hours in order to support his family. His example has showed me that time management skills are important and that has taught me how to be a better person. He is a hero I look up to, as very few people I know could pull off a feat like him.
