Hello everybody! This is the example for your Task 2. Remember, for this task, you have to write a short passage of not less than 80 words that describes your favourite Malaysian National Hero. Tell me why you like this particular Malaysian Hero and what are his or her contributions to the country. You can look for the person’s information through the Internet but make sure you use your own words! The best passage will be posted in the class’s blog!


My favourite Malaysian National Hero is Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor who is the first Malaysian to go to the space. I really admire Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor because he is highly motivated in achieving his dream of becoming an astronaut. Besides that, he is also very patient in enduring all the hard challenges in becoming an astronaut in a short period of time. I also admire Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor because he is very talented in many fields. This is because apart from being an astronaut, he is also a doctor, a model, an entrepreneur and now a motivator.

Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor has really made the country proud by successfully being the first Malaysian astronaut and was able to carry out the crucial experiments on the space for the good of the mankind. His high determination and spirit in realizing his dream should be followed by all the young generations who are the future leaders of Malaysia. As mentioned by him; “What your mind believes, your body can achieve”.
