The person who I look up to is my brother Matthew. I look up to him because he is smart, loyal, trustworthy, athletic, funny, energetic, brave, and honest, plus he has a great attitude. My brother is 29 years old.
My brother is smart because when he was in school he always got A,B honor roll. When he had to study for a test he would study for two hours straight every day until the day of the test. After he took the test the teacher would say he got a perfect 100 on it. When he took the S.O.L he passed and advanced because he scored in the 500s. My brother is also brave because when we went to the Haunted Hills and the Haunted Forest he was never scared. One time at a zoo he got to hand feed a lion. When the lion took the meat out of his hand. He didn't even flinch.
My brother is also honest. When my mom asks him if he took out the trash and washed the dishes he always tells the truth. He is also generous, because when he gets his pay check he always donates fifty dollars to the poor. One time he donated his entire pay check to the poor.
He is also athletic, because when he gets home we both run around the house four times and when we are done we play basketball, and after that we both do 500 push-ups. Finally he is funny. One time he made me laugh so hard milk came out of my nose. Here is an example of one of his jokes. "When a guy is hanging onto a tree branch with one arm how do you get him down? Just wave to him." So in conclusion, these are the reasons why I look up to my older brother Matthew.
