Here are some ideas. Best vocabulary is underlined.
I’m going to talk about my father because he has been a major influence in my life. My father was always a good role model for me as I was growing up. He’s hard working, patient and understanding; he’s also got a good sense of humour and seems to get on well with every body. Hopefully I’ve inherited some of these traits.
I admire my father because I think he brought me and my brothers/sisters up well; he was quite strict but always fair, and he has always been someone I can turn to for advice. I think my father set a good example by working hard and having a positive outlook on life. I remember that he used to leave for work early and come home quite late, but he always made time for me and my brothers/sisters.
