Model Answer:
Frankly speaking, I would be more than happy to talk about all of my friends here, one by one, but I don’t think that I will be able to do so within such a short period of time. So, I will go ahead and talk about just one as this topic suggests.

Anyway, the friend, I want to talk about, is known to us as “Rabbi” (this is his nickname). I met this good friend of mine at a local coffee shop about 5 years ago. It was a rather busy coffee shop, so it was only natural for me to think that I would have to wait for some time before I could actually get my cup of fresh coffee. But the guy, talking and acting very much like a “boss”, made sure that none of his customers had to wait any more extra time than the usual to get their coffees.

Later on, I came to know that the guy, talking behind the cash register, was none other than the son of the coffee shop owner. Before leaving his shop that afternoon, I thanked him for his prompt service, and in return, he also asked me to visit his coffee shop again - just as a true manager and gentleman would do.

By the way, Rabbi is not exactly like any other people since he always seems to be busy either with his coffee shop or political activities (yes, he is really passionate about the politics of my country), but still, we somehow manage some time, now and then, to plant different kinds of trees in his huge garden as well as visiting the countryside once in a while in order to breathe some fresh air.

So, why I like this friend of mine? Well, I like this person, mainly because he works really hard in order to earn his living. Besides, his eagerness to help other people in his community, as a part of his political campaign, also makes him quite a likeable person, not only to me but also to many other people around him.
