Essays on the Theme of Heroism

My Grandfather

by Safiatou Jallow from Banjul in Gambia

My name is Saffiatou Jallow and I live in Nema Jola Kunda. My hero is my grandfather. I like him so much simply because he is the breadwinner of my family. I live with my grandfather. He is loving, caring, and very much kindhearted. He taught me so many things despite the difference in gender. He toils for our family day and night, just to make it so we live happy. He makes it so I go to school and have a quality education. I will never forget what he did for me. He is my light. He is my mentor.
