My hero is my dad. He is somewhat tall and has short black hair. My dad and I like to cook, play basketball and create art. He helps me by motivating me to try new things. One of the things I like about him is that even though I annoy him sometimes he is always there to help me. He makes me feel special by giving me money and letting me do stuff with my friends. He likes to watch TV, mostly soccer. I look up to him because he teaches me how to be a respectful person and tells me how life really is, which prepares me for when I go out in the real world. My dad is a chef and he likes his job. My favorite memories of him are when he teaches me how to cook.

My hero is Anahi (Mia); she’s Mexican and a professional singer. She has light brown hair, blue eyes, and a light completion. Anahi and I have many things in common; like we both love to sing, we like to act, and we love the color pink! She helps me because her songs help me when I’m feeling sad, mad, and happy. They calm me down. I like her because she is a really good singer. She makes me feel special because I can relate to her songs, even though I’ve never met her. I think she is unique because she dresses the way she wants to and acts the way she wants, not caring what people say. Her hobbies are shopping, dancing, singing, acting, and modeling. Her favorite things are: Disney characters like Tinker Bell, her favorite music is pop. I look up to her because she is a very strong woman. She was anorexic but she knew she had to fight it and she did. Her job is a singer, actress, and model.

My hero would have to be my mom, because she has such a generous heart. She will give and give till she has nothing left. And even then she will still give somebody the shirt off of her back if need be. She is a pretty chill person to hang out with. She is like me pretty much except a little shorter. She teaches me the things I need to know and things I don’t know yet. I love hanging out with my mama and even though we can get on each other’s nerves she still my mama and will love me till the earth stops spinning. I can always count on her to be there for me no matter what time of day it is or what it’s I’ve done. My mama will text me while I’m in class and I have to watch out for the teacher so I don’t get caught. I remember one time she told me to be careful and watch out where I was going and what happens? She ends up stubbing her toe. It was really funny. I love my mama and I wrote this so she could go to work and brag about her kid writes papers about her. Just kidding, I will always love my mama for being her.
