My favorite relative whom I also admire very much is my Uncle Bob. Since I was
twelve years old, his advice and words have influenced me a lot in the way I
look at life and people.
Uncle Bob is a good-looking man with a
charming smile and friendly brown eyes.
Besides his good looks, he is also very kind and a caring person.
Three years ago, when both my parents were involved in a serious car
accident, uncle Bob took on the role as a parent to me. I lived with him during
that trying period. He allowed me to stay
with him even though his home was not really big. He showed his care and love
for me by continuously caring about my health, education and the things that I
needed at that time.
I really appreciated the time he spent with me. We used to go on trips
together for we have the same love for the sea and sailing. So we would just
spend days lazing on the beach playing our guitars or reading our favourite car
magazines. Since then, I have always felt grateful towards him. He was like a
father figure who would always give me encouragement and advice in order to face
any challenges in life.
My uncle is a special man. He and my father come from a big family of eight
children. Knowing that his parents would not be able to afford to send him
overseas, he studied hard to obtain a scholarship to get a law degree. While in
university, he paid for his books and fees by giving private tuition to primary
After graduating with his law degree, he joined a big legal firm. Through
hard work and perseverance, he went on to
open his own small firm. Today, he is a successful lawyer who owns a large legal
firm with three partners. He is also well respected and known as a kind and
compassionate lawyer who fights for justice for the unfortunate.
