Michael C

My hero is just a simple man. Michael is the one who made a lot of sacrifice to his career since he was just 16 years old. He didn't know how to enjoy life; how to spend time with friends in those days because he had too many dreams to fulfill. He's been focused on his dreams since he was really young.

Instead, he knows how to take care of others in a tender way. He spoke with his mum very often to make sure that she was okay whenever he was away. He is the one who will open the car door for you when you are on or off his car, and see you off at your door when saying goodbye. He can spend time listening to you patiently whenever you are confused and give you any help at the right moment

Most of all, he is the most modest person I've ever known. He can see things with the calm eyes of a thoughtful scholar. In my mind he is my hero because he really raised me up since I first met him.

Brought tears to my eyes, what an amazing story. Never, never, never give up! (Winston Churchill)

Kevin C. from Connecticut, USA MARCH 9, 2008
This is very inspiring. My parents neither believed in me nor put me down. I'm 15, I don't have a girlfriend, and I have some great friends, but they're not people I can talk to in order to acquire self-esteem, confidence, persistence, etc. I'm very intelligent, but I lack the positive feelings necessary to pursue my dreams. Profound and abstract thinking is a love and a gift of mine, however within that, I couldn't discover resilience to all of the negativity surrounding me. Currently, this is the only source that's somewhat sustaining my academics, and overall, my life. Words simply cannot describe how much I appreciate this story-this message.

I have tears in my eyes.

I was reminded of my mum while reading this story. My mum is an English teacher in a reputed school and has stood by me at all tough times in my life. It's only because of her that I've achieved anything.

Denise A. from Philippines AUGUST 5, 2007

Sukhsohit S. from Chandigarh, India AUGUST 4, 2007
Every failure is a stepping stone to a greater success and every success is a failure turned upside down. It's when you are disheartend and every thing seems blue, it's then when you must not quit and keep going through. Your story testifies this. Indeed a motivating and inspiring story.
