Zewdie’s First Essay

Zewdie, is a former patient who had TB of the spine with a 120 degree angle in his low back. We sent him to Ghana where he had 5 vertebrae removed and his spine rebuilt. He is now a new high school student in Ohio.

He just emailed his very first English assignment – “write about the most successful person you know.”

My first essay:

In my opinion the most successful person I know is named Dr. rick hodes , he is an American doctor, but he lives in Ethiopia, which is my country for many years now. I have known him for seven years and I have been living with him almost six years and He does a lot of medical works in Ethiopia and all over African countries, He is the most generous doctor which I have ever met. He works every day without any spear time and he has many types of work in African countries based on many medical treatments. He does work on sending patients for spine surgery in Ghana and in America like twenty or surety people at one time and he does this three or four times in a year. I’m one of his spine patient’s. And another one is for heart surgery, he sends them to India and America in different times, in a year and also he gives out medicines for cancer allover African countries, but most of the time in Ethiopia.

He is the most thoughtful, helpful and kind person that I have ever seen since I lived with him. And he is the most successful person in my opinion I saw, after being living with him for six years now I got a chance to go to school in America and he is the one who does this for me. And I’m school in America now, with American kids, but no one from my country I’m the only one in my school Ohio thanks to rick. I have a lot of thing to say about him, this is just small story, if my English becomes better and I’m smart enough I would like write a book about him and Share his great work in the world.
