  • Mandela Role Model

    ENGLISH MOCK EXAM Task 1 A great man, a great role model Nelson Mandela was born July 18, 1918 in South Africa, and he was a freedom fighter. He played an essential role in the human rights movement in South Africa. He is a role model for many people, but why? In this text, I am going to write about why he is an excellent role model for so many people. I am also going to compare him to Rosa Parks who is a similar role model. There are several reasons why Nelson Mandela is a great role model; he was the first black president in South Africa, a notable writer, an accomplished lawyer and a civil rights activist. However, I think the main reason for why he is a role model for so many people is because he stood up for himself. He served a prison sentence of twenty-seven years for something he believed in, which was equal rights and freedom for all. However, this doesn’t necessarily explain why he is so popular in today’s society. I think he is a popular role model today because people can relate to the fact that standing up for yourself is important. I think most citizens will try in their everyday life to stand up for themselves. It can be to a bully at school, or to your own boss. Young or old, we all want to stand up for ourselves, just like Mandela did. That’s why he is such a popular role model. If I were to compare Nelson Mandela to a similar role model, based on the motives provided in the previous paragraph, it would be Rosa Parks. Although these individuals were born…
