Someone I admire

My cousin Laura

Someone I admire is my cousin Laura. She’s five years older than me, so she’s 19 now and she lives in Bristol. She’s very friendly and confident and she’s got long, wavy, brown hair and greeny-brown eyes. She’s medium height, slim and very fit because she’s a dancer.

She’s been dancing since she was six years old and trains every day at her dance school. She wants to be a professional dancer, but it’s a very difficult profession because it’s so competitive. She often dances in shows and I’ve been to watch her several times. Her favourite type of dance is modern, which is sometimes a bit strange, but I love watching her dance.

Laura is very busy because she also studies photography at university. She’s a really good photographer and has taken lots of amazing photos of me and my family. Her photos have won a few prizes and last year one of her photos was in an exhibition at an art gallery in London.

Laura doesn’t have a lot of free time and she’s also trying to learn German because she wants to go to Germany next year to do a photography course. I think Laura is very hard-working and she deserves to become a professional dancer one day.

Someone I admire is Emma Watson. I've known her from my childhood. While I was watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, I saw her as Hermione Granger and I thought she was so cute. She graduated from Brown University with a bachelor's degree in English literature and I think that's so awesome. She defences women rights and she talks about the importance about women rights. She also so kind, so funny and so perfect with her imperfections.

As first person I admire my mother. She did everything to us just to make us successful. I'm so proud of her. She learned us how to be person. She has never shown her sad face, even if we knew that she was sad, she didn't gave up. Also I admire and my father. He's the strongest man I've met. He makes us so happy, so proud, so strong. I'm very happy to have family like them.
Oh here's and my brother, he's so bad in school, but very good in football. I hope he'll, one day, become a footballer. :)
