For Brovember, Young Post asked our readers to tell us about a man who inspires them. This could be their father, brother, uncle, teacher, or even someone they've never met, like US President Barack Obama or Canto-pop musician Eason Chan.

The person who inspires me most is my friend Jeffrey Andrews.

Jeffrey is a social worker. Every day he gets up at 5am and heads out to make the world a better place by helping people in need. He might not earn a lot of money doing this but as he says that it’s worth it.

I remember once there was someone who had a terminal illness, and Jeffrey took lots of days off work in order to go visit this guy. When I asked Jeffrey why he’d do that, he told me that it’s our responsibility as people to at least make the rest of the boy’s life better by trying to cheer him up and giving him reasons to smile with regular visits.
