Bill Gates

by Austin

"650k ought to be enough for anybody."

Bill Gates is one of the most interesting and rich men in the world. He started with nothing and with hard work, made himself extrememly sucessful. Bill Gates is very determined, extremely generous, and intelligent.

He is very determined, or he would not be where he is now. He didn't give up; he just kept trying till he worked himself to the top.

Bill Gates has been very generous. He has given billions of dollars to charities for people who are poor. Almost all of his money is going to charity when he dies, only .02% is going to his family members and friends; that's still 10 billion dollars.

Bill Gates had to be intelligent to get where he is now. Bill Gates created Microsoft with everything he learned throughout his life. Intelligence is how he got to where he is today.

Bill Gates is my hero because of his traits. Who is yours?
