Young Heroes

John Tacket

by Nasser Alnuaimi from Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates

Hello, I chose John Tacket as my hero because he has inspired me, that you can do anything. John has a disease called Progeria, it is when you age much faster. He was the oldest person with Progeria. He loved to hang out with his friends and play drums. His disease made him a lot weaker but he still lived as a happy man. He was always brave, happy and kind to others, and that is why he is my hero.
