A friend – by Reina Jeon Yeong Seo, Year 9, Sayfol International School
Patrick is a wonderful person who has a great personality. He is a special person to me as he is someone I will never forget. He spends a lot of time with me and we have a lot of magnificent memories. He always helps me when I’m in trouble and advises me if I’m in despair. He is like an energiser to me. Patrick is a treasure, a person who is extremely precious. I like him for three main reasons.
Firstly, Patrick is kind to everyone. He tries hard not to make people dislike him. He is a helpful person. In particular, Patrick has helped me a lot. Whenever I feel like giving up on something, he advises me to persevere and to put in my best. He also stayed by my side when everyone turned their backs on me. He encouraged me and assured me everything would turn out fine. Patrick is kind even to strangers. Once, I saw him on the street pushing the wheelchair of a person who had a disorder. He could have looked away but he offered to help instead. Moreover, Patrick helped an old lady to her house because she had lost her way and she was carrying a heavy bag.
Secondly, Patrick is humble. He is never arrogant and always thinks about other people’s feelings first. He shows great respect for other people. Patrick did very well in his exam but when everyone congratulated him, he just said that he was lucky. He could have been arrogant about his good results but he wasn’t. Patrick often says he is not good enough so he needs to improve more. When people compliment Patrick, he says that he doesn’t deserve the compliments. He says he will always work hard to improve and become a great person. He says he hasn’t even gotten halfway to where he needs to go and still has a long way to go.
Thirdly, Patrick is a great singer. He is very passionate about singing. He loves singing and tries really hard to achieve his dream of becoming a singer one day. Patrick is very enthusiastic. When he sings, it seems like he has wings. It feels like he has magical powers to attract people with his voice. Moreover, he can sing anywhere. He can sing under any condition and at any place. He practises very hard to improve his singing step by step. Because he practises so hard, even adverse conditions do not affect his singing. Anywhere he sings, he has a great voice.
In conclusion, I think Patrick is a splendid person and he will become an even better one in the future. If everyone knows Patrick the way I do, they would surely like and admire him the way I do too!
