Family Footsteps

We all have someone in our family who we admire. From my perspective, these people are essential for us as we have somebody to mirror ourselves. In my case, the person I most admire is certainly my grandfather, whose life story inspires me.

He was born in a small village. He was the son of a journalist who used to fight alongside the small farmers against powerful landowners. He, his mother and brothers used to live happily until the day his dad was killed. He was just six years old when he started working to help his mother. Life was hard but he never gave up, so after a lot of work and dedication he achieved his dream and graduated in law from one of the best colleges in the country.

Everyone has dreams but there are few people in the world strong enough to fight for them. Surely, my grandfather is one of these people. It is always a pleasure to hear about his life experiences. I’m going to follow in his footsteps so that I can be a better person.

1. The storyteller admires his grandfather.

2. The old man was born in a city.

3. He came from a small family.

4. He was a hard worker.

5. He got a higher education.

6. His dream came true.
