This man is a hero because he never gives up. He was brave because he had to immigrate to a new land, where he did not know the language and anyone. He did not give up when people laughed at him about not knowing English. He makes a difference in our life because he teaches us never to give in to anyone. He teaches everyone that no matter what religion or what culture you are, you can do something just as well as anyone else, as long as you try.
