The Person I Admire Most (essay)

The person I admire most is my friend Boris. Boris is my neighbour and my best friend.
Boris is a 12-year-old boy. He goes to Vuk Karadžić Primary School. Boris wears glasses and he is short. Boris is blond with blue eyes. He usually wears tracksuits and sneakers. He also likes to wear T-shirts.

I admire Boris because he is always there for a friend. He is always ready to help you. Even if he has to study a lot, he will be there if any of his best friends needs help. He truly is a good friend.

Boris is always in a good mood. He is always ready for parties. That kid really likes to party!

He loves to tell jokes, too. His favourite jokes are those with a bunny. He is always there to make me laugh when I am sad or feel lonely.

I also admire Boris for being such a good footballer, although he is not interested in it. His favourite football player is Oliver Kahn, the German goalkeeper. It is a real pity that he does not like football. He could be a real pro. But, he is interested in swimming. He has been taking swimming lessons since he was five years old.

Boris has been my best friend since the day I moved to my new house. I think that we will be best friends forever.

The person I admire most is my dad. There are many reasons why I admire him most, but I will tell you only a few of them.

I admire my dad because he is a very good fisherman. He goes fishing almost every day. He went fishing this morning and came home with lots of fish. I asked him how he had made it and he told me that he had used one of his own techniques.

The second reason is that he is not interested in all that new hi-tech things. He can barely use his cell phone. Unlike me. I could not live without them. I once tried not to touch my cell phone for one, single day and it was impossible.

The third reason is that he is a very humorous person. He likes to laugh and make jokes. But sometimes, when he is not in the mood or when he is angry, you cannot talk to him. Fortunately, that does not happen very often.

My dad is a great person and I will try my best to become just like him.

Everyone has their idols, were they singers, actors, sportsmen, family members, or others. I admire my grandfather, Aleksandar, for several reasons.

He is a sixty-year-old thin man. He has got green eyes and brown hair. My grandmother always says that he was a beautiful man when he was young, and he still is.

He likes sports, especially swimming, diving, running and fishing. His hobbies are walking, watching TV and gardening.

The first reason why I admire my grandfather is because of his knowledge and wisdom. He always gives me some clever advice and helps me with everything.

The second reason is the fact that he has travelled around the world and knows many things about different cultures and nations. He tells interesting stories about his journeys and adventures.

The third reason is that he is always patient with me and my problems. I can tell him everything that troubles me and he always has time for me.

Everybody thinks that he is cool and funny. I agree. He can make me laugh when I am sad or ill.

Family is very important to him. He is never in a bad mood.

I love my grandfather very much and I want to be like him when I am older.
