Christopher Columbus found an undiscovered land with only a few men and with a boat during a storm. How would you feel if you were traveling to an unknown land with a few men and little food during a storm? Christopher Columbus was a kind and a brave person that found a land nobody knew about. He was born on Aug. 25, 1451 and died on May 20, 1506. Christopher Columbus is my hero because he is brave, smart, and a very good leader.

Christopher Columbus is my hero because of his bravery. He was very brave to step up to find new found land. He used a boat and found a land even though many of his crew had died. He led a big group of men through a long time overseas. He was also brave because he went to an unknown land even though he did not know what there was in that new found land. Christopher Columbus is still honored and praised for the things that he did.

Christopher Columbus is my hero because he is smart. He looked at the map and suggested that there would be a new and unfound land. He used a boat to go to the new world but there was a storm. He did all he could and he got away from the storm. Christopher Columbus outsmarted the storm with his great leadership.

Christopher Columbus is my hero because of his bravery, his knowledge, and his great leadership skills. Christopher Columbus was an Italian navigator and had two children named Diego and Fernando. In 1485, Columbus told John the 2nd, King of Portugal, to give him 3 ships and the next year, he came back with the navigation of the new found land. Christopher Columbus is still honored because of his skill of finding undiscovered land in such a hard period.
