My instructor is my role model. He is an outstanding teacher who cares deeply about his students. He taught me life lessons and ways I should behave and so many other things. He is a good man who devotes himself to his family and his students. His devotion inspires me and because of that, he is my role model. Furthermore, I respect his guidance.
