Describe a polite person you know
You should say:
Who he/she is
How you knew him/her
What he/she is like
And explain why you think he/she is polite
A polite person I want to talk about is Wang Xiao, who is a friend that I knew from an international contest held in Beijing. It was actually a contest in the format of a conference where attendees compete against each other by expressing their own opinions about global affairs. It’s pretty much like Model United Nations.
I knew him from the first day at the conference. But, it was during the final day that we had a deep communication. Xiao had a very professional skill in negotiating and broad knowledge of international affairs. This article is from Laokaoya website. I remember the first day she came to the Beijing International Conference Center, which is the place we had that contest. She wore a suit and carried a very small suitcase, from which I could see that she just came here from the airport. You know, girls sometimes have a lot of stuff in the luggage, but she wasn’t one of them. So, I thought she must have a simplistic lifestyle.
Well, one experience deeply left in my mind. You know, she was taller than me. When I asked to take a picture with her, she said sure and immediately took off her high heels to adjust her height. That was probably the biggest reason why I think she was polite. You know, never in my life had I met a person who could have such nice behavior. Another reason why I think she was polite was that no matter whom she talked to, she always wore a smile on her face. That kind of positive energy really touched me.
I wish I could someday become a person like her, who is caring and compassionate.
