Fatherly example

My role model is my dad. He can do anything well, and he’ll always think of ways to try to improve. I would like to learn this skill from him.

Encouraging teacher

My role model is my English teacher because she never gives up on people. She always tells me, “I believe you can do it”! I’m struggling with my final exam, but I won’t give up.

Patient educator

My role model is my Chinese teacher, Miss Yip. She has a great personality, whether she’s teaching us in a lesson or talking to us after school, and she rarely gets mad. She gives us good advice and talks to us patiently when we need help.
