During my teenage life, there have been several people who have influenced various expression of my entire life, based on their achievement, personal characteristics, and values. I have been privileged to have had numerous teachers’ andprofessors who I respect for their knowledge and intelligence. There are artists that have inspired me by their natural talents. I evaluate many political leaders, who have motivated me by their contributions to society. But finally, I realized that of all the people I have encountered in my life, the person I admire most is my father. He is an ordinary people but he has been a major influence in my life. My father was always a good role model for me as I was growing up. He’s hard-working, patient and understanding; he's also got a good sense of humor and seems to get on well with everybody. Hopefully I've inherited some of these traits. When I was 15 years old, he gave me a letter as my birthday present and after read that, I found that this letter is definitely the best present I have ever got. Because it is far significantly than other presents he had given me before. In that letter, he narrated me a story of himself, the story of those tough years he had struggled. He told me how poor my family was when he was in my age and how he had striven to change everything to what I have today. What's more, he told me in great pride that he was the very first child who went out the mountain to read a college in the city. He was the pioneer that makes me live in this great environment. In another word, he devoted his entire life to earning me a better childhood. All I have today thanks to the laborious journey that father had surmounted.  In conclusion, he set a good example by working hard and having a positive outlook on life. That is why my father is the person I love and admire forever this life....
