The person I am going to tell you is my grandpa, who is approaching his 60s. Despite his old age, he is still very energetic and has a quick mind. When I was a child, my parents were always very busy with work, and they often left me to my grandpa, so we are very close. I visit him every weekend, and he always prepares various delicious food to welcome me.
He used to be a translator working at the Chinese Foreign Ministry and is good at Japanese, French, and English. After his retirement, he became a volunteer at the information center of the train station in our city. This article is from laokaoya website. Every day, he helps foreign visitors find their routes and provides them with detailed guides about how to best enjoy our city, which saves them a lot of trouble.
The reason why he chooses to help these foreign visitors is quite simple. He does not want to waste what he has learnt and retirement life is boring. Working at the information center makes him feel he is still useful and solving the problems that others cannot because of the language barrier gives him a sense of achievement.
I am really proud of my grandpa. He has found a perfect way to combine what he is good at and what others need. Meanwhile, he makes his own contribution to the city’s development.
