The most remarkable person I know

 Q:   Ask a Question about The most remarkable person I know       
The most remarkable person I know by Cristina Nuta -

The person I admire most is not famous at all, yet to my mind his achievements are as important as those of any historical figure. Gary is a fellow student of mine at college, and for him this fact is a major achievement.

Gary suffers from cerebral palsy, which makes it almost impossible for him to control his movements. As a result, he spends his life in a wheelchair, cannot write with a pen or a pencil, and speaks so slowly and strangely that it takes patience to understand what he is saying. This, together with his thin, twisted body and awkward facial expressions, can often cause people to treat him as if he were a backward child.

However, behind his physical appearance, Gary is a warm, fun-loving, intelligent person. His disabilities affect his muscles, no t his mind or personality. He enjoys the same things any student does-listening to music, meeting friends, and so on- and he is not only the best student in our class, but also has a wonderful sense of humour and genuine interest in other people. Unable to express himself easily in conversation, he uses a special typewriter to write letters to his friends, and beautiful poems which show the true depth of his thoughts and character. He lives a very regular life, studying every day and never allowing himself to fall behind in his schoolwork. Of course he enjoys going out as well, and he believes that a balance of work and play make life happy and fulfilling.

The main reason I admire him so much is that he is determined to lead a normal life, is spite of his physical difficulties he has to overcome. Although his condition prevented him from going to school, he gave himself an education by studying at home. He lives alone, cooking and cleaning with the help of equipment he designed himself, as he leads a full social life with his many friends, including visits to the theatre, or even to the funfair.

Another reason I admire Gary, is the fact that he never feels sorry for himself. He says, for instance, that being unable to move around simply gives him more time to think. In fact, he always manages to see the bright side of any situation, so that, far from needing his friends to comfort him, he actually cheers us up when we are worried or depressed.

I would admire Gary as a person even if he didn't have any disability; the fact he does, and refuses to let it spoil his life, makes him the most remarkable person I know.
