When people are asked about the question who is the one they admire most, the answers could not be more different. Indeed, everyone has his/her hero on heart. And I also have mine: he is my father. There are various reasons why he is the person I admire the most; he gave me life, watched me grow up and helped me during my adolescent years. He is also my best friend. Throughout the years, my father is my abecedarian and best teacher. He took an active role in my education. From my childhood, I was taught speaking, reading and writing by him. After I grew up, my father tried his best to shape my personality as patient and optimistic when facing difficulities. He was strict with me, but got never tired of my mistakes. As a straight-A student in the university, now I cannot help but attribute my present status to my educational foundation that my father helped establish very early in my life. What’s more, my father is also my best friend. Over the years, he successfully made the transition from a strict father to a kind friend. Once I am in trouble which I could not solve by myself, the first person to whom I give the call is my father, because I know the things I get from him will be both the consolation and the support. He has always been on my side and cared about my development. The reliability is what I care most when dealing with relationship with other people, and also the character what I can find from my father. Although many people admire the famous person or a super star, I insist on taking my father, an ordinary man as my hero. My father, educated me since my birth and during my adolescence, and he was both as a father and a friend. This is why no one can ever supersede the place of my father as my hero.
