My Grandmother: The Person I Admire

842 words - 4 pages

An admirable person stands for excellence: deserving to be admired, inspiring approval and affection. With that definition being said, only one person stands out in my mind, my grandmother.

With my grandmothers hard work and dedication to many things in life , it made her such a well rounded person. She stood out to everyone, she was never lazy, you would never catch her sitting down or taking a...
