A Man I Admire

The person who I admire


There are many people who I admire; movie stars, billionaires, scientists, and researchers. The person who I admire the most, I think, is Ha Nguyen, who has been a paralytic for twenty years and has worked as the director of a garment company since 2006.

Ha Nguyen was born in to a poor family in 1981. His legs have not been growing grown since he was two months old. His parents couldn't afford to send him to see a the doctor. He couldn't stand and or walk by himself until the age of five when his father bought him a pair of crutches.

After one a year later, Ha started school. It wasn't easy because it's 10km from his house to school and he had to go to school by himself. However, he was never been discouraged. He graduated from university in 2002 and got a masters degree in 2004.

He worked as a translator for an export company for 2 years before deciding to open his own company, Hong Ha, in 2006. The main products of this company are necessary tools for disabled people.

Ha is very busy now because he wants to check all the products before they are brought to the market. I knew heard about him through on a television show last week that introduced his company's products.

The reason that I admire him is because although he met faced a lot of difficulties with his paralysed legs, he's never felt sad & dissatisfied. He has tried to do everything by himself. He has wanted wants to be treated as a normal man. Moreover, he has a warm heart.

There are 50 workers working for in his company, and most of them are disabled people. They produce things necessary for disable people.

If you visit his province, you can find his company easily because everyone knows him.
