He’s a very hard working man and I’d always aspire to be like him someday

Was there a time u helped others out?
Yes. I was working at a French restaurant In Manhattan, NY while I was going to school there. There’s this homeless lady and her daughter that always hang around the corner of the shop to beg for money and food.
One day it was snowing and I had just ended my shift. I say the mother shivering so hard that her teeth were clenching. She had no jacket on and I’m thinking she gave it to her daughter. I was so touched that I brought her and her daughter into my place of work. I sat them in the corner of the shop and bought them soups to warm themselves up. I took the jacket I was wear and the scarf and gave it to her. I asked my coworker to let them stay until his shift was over and I left. I had to run to about 1.5 mile to the subway with Just T-shirt while it was snowing and it was very cold. I did the same when I got off my stop and ran about 2.5 miles to my house. The next day my coworkers heard about it and they said some nice things to me. The same week I received a $1600 scholarship for the semester I was in. God do work in mysterious ways
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
I’m very happy. I have always been content with the little I have. I have always make what I have worked. I’m happy. I’m in school, I have a job and I’m working on a project that would blow my mind when it falls through
