“Ode to Michael Jordan,” by Eddie Is a powerful story about how Michael Jordan was a role model on and off the court. He also never gave up. Even after he got cut from his high school team he keep on pushing. He eventually succeeded in for filling his dream. He made it to the NBA. That is why he is my role model. He never gave up trying to reach his dream. I think that he is the best person to look up to. Not just because he was one of the best basketball players but because he never gave up.
