An Essay on Our Hero – Craig Kielburger

Craig Kielburger is most famous for his charity Free the Children. He founded this charity when he was only 12 years old. We think the three qualities of a hero include the following: compassion, determination and courage. When you hear about this man he will be your hero too.

First we will tell you about his compassion. Craig Kielburger has tons of compassion for people in need. He fights for their rights and volunteers for local communities and global regions in need. One day Craig was looking for the comic section in the newspaper when he saw an article entitled “Battled Child Labour” It read, “Boy, 12, murdered.” This article dramatically changed his life and he wanted to investigate why this was happening and that’s how he got the idea to co-found the charity- Free the Children.

Second we will tell you about his determination. When he was young he wasn’t taken seriously at first. So he educated himself and travelled to different countries to gather more information and experience. Another way he showed his determination was by writing books on how people like us can change the world. He tells us some ways that you can make a change are by getting involved with the following: Adopt a Village, Brick by Brick, School building, Health care, Nationl Trips and much, much more.

Courage is a very important quality and Craig Kielburger possesses this as well. Craig had the courage to travel to Pakistan at the very young age of 12.He went because he wanted to see the atrocities for himself so that he would better understand the situation in the world of child labourers.

He also took part in protest against child labour in Calcutta. His courage has brought attention to children suffering worldwide.

Now you know the three qualities of a hero. They are compassion, determination and courage. Craig possesses all of these qualities. We hope you enjoyed our essay on our hero, Craig Kielburger.
