Describe an old person you know and respect

Describe an old person you know and respect.

You should say:
Who he or she is?
How do you know this person?
What he or she is like?
And explain why you respect him or her?

Sample Answer:

Well, I have many people in my life whom I respect, but most of them are not that old. However, I would like to tell you about a street vendor who sells fresh vegetables on his cart. He is a gentleman who is in his late 70’s. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this man.

How do I know this person?

I know this person since my childhood because we buy all of the fresh and healthy vegetables from his cart. I am of 21 years now, and I am damn sure we are his customers before my birth. I would say he is like a family now. We stand with him in thin and thick, and so do he.

What he or she is like?

As I have told, he is in his late 70’s, but still, he is physically fit. He is slim and tall with grey hairs. He alone manages his entire cart. He is an honest and hard-working person. Sometimes, I ask the secrets behind his fitness. Once, he said, “I have lemon with honey every morning after a long walk”. Also, he had told that he does not consume much sugar and salt which are the roots of many health issues.

Why I respect him?

I respect him because he is a self-made man with a kind heart. He never cheated with us. Moreover, by doing hard work, he has not only given the best education to his children but also fulfilled the dreams of many orphanage children by paying their school fees. He might not have a lot of money, but definitely, he has a big heart.
