Hero speech

Extracts from this document...


Can you imagine what it would be like to experience 3 heart attacks in 1 year? Well my hero has and to me that's what makes him stand out from the rest. My chosen hero is my father; his achievement was overcoming a life threatening heart condition that completely changed his life. As he was growing up my fathers dream was to become and engineer. At the time it was almost impossible to achieve due to the war in Lebanon. The war meant that he had relocate to many universities around Lebanon, learning the languages in which they studied in and attending more then the 3 years required just to attain a bachelors degree.

Remember problems are a part of life, you wont conquer all the challenges thrown your way, it's a never-ending game, which only God can decide when you quit. Because at times like this no matter how badly you want to give up negative attitude will never help nor get you anywhere just bounce through it and know that tomorrow will be a new day full of joy, life is how you make it so make it how you want it! ...read more.
