Model Answer:

There are many well-known persons in the world today whom I really admire, even though, sometimes I ask myself if I am a big fan of them or their work to like or admire them so much. Nevertheless, I like to talk about them, learn more about them and sometimes get inspired by their words and works. I even sometimes talk about them with others, just like I am going to do here now.

The well-known person, I admire and want to talk about, is Melinda Gates. Born in the year of 1964, Melinda Ann Gates is an American philanthropist and a former general manager of Microsoft, the US-based, multinational technology giant. Being the former wife of Bill Gates in personal life, Melinda gates basically came to the limelight after co-founding the world’s largest private charitable organization called the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in the year 2000. Since then, Melinda gates has consistently been regarded as one of the world’s most powerful women.

By the way, Melinda Gates is well known around the world, not only because she, along with her ex-husband, has spent billions of dollars to reduce the poverty of millions and improve their lives, but also because of her passionate appeal to end gender inequality around the world. In fact, in order to end the gender inequality in the world, she even wrote a book titled “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World”. 

She also has worked to create an online community of optimists to shape a better world. Besides, she has also worked to introduce a new style of management at work where love and empathy play a very important role in motivating her fellow workers.

In conclusion, I would like to say that I admire this person, mainly because she perfectly understands her role as one of the most powerful female leaders of modern times. I admire her also because she has planned to give away all of her wealth to help the poor and needy around the world. Finally, I admire her also because she has given a voice to millions of women around the world who otherwise would feel lost.
