Tribute Speech I. Introduction A. Attention Statement All goals achieved in life throughout sacrifice and perseverance are given gifts of god that should be considered and valued. B. Thesis Statement Tonight I would like to share with you someone who has made a big impact in my life, my grandfather, Humberto Pesantez. C. Point Preview My grandfather is a very hard working man, and despite of his very poor childhood living conditions, he was able to help support his seven siblings and yet became a successful business man. However, he did not know how to be on top of money and power. D. Significance of Subject It is because of his example that I wisely consider all the actions and choices I make in my life, and not only for my own benefit, but for the future of my family. II. Main Point A. Subject Statement Although in his childhood he had to face a tough childhood, with lack of opportunities, Humberto’s trait of being a hard working man was a vital key to success. B. Illustration (2 positive with one illustration only) I always think and wonder how a child at the only age of seven was able to go to school in the mornings, always get excellent grades and after school be ready to go to work on the streets with a small sit, a brush and a piece of fabric to clean shoes, so that at the end of the day he would come back home to contribute some money to help support his other seven siblings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
