My transformed cousin “Mathew”
    It was two years ago that my cousin Mathew went to Africa as a volunteer, after graduating from Hong Kong University. He is tall and slim with olive skin. He has a thin face, big brown round eyes, and a sharp nose, with crew-cut hair. He is twenty-five years old. His nickname is "Marathon" because he loves running.

    Mathew is very outgoing. He is always friendly and loves to have fun. He has a fantastic sense of humor and he always makes me laugh. We could often chat until midnight about everything. However, he can be a bit immature at times. For example, when he doesn't get what he wants, he acts childishly and stamps his feet.

      Like some of the modern teenagers in Hong Kong, he has a great sense of style, so he is always well-dressed even in his casual clothes. Before he went to Africa, he was quite lazy and rarely got out of bed before mid-afternoon. My aunt Miranda used to complain that he was too vain and never considered his future.

      As of now, he is totally transformed. He has been working as a project officer in a volunteer organization after he came back from Africa in March 2010. He has become so mature and very hard-working and he hardly ever takes a day off. He used to spend extravagantly, but now he scrimps and saves, and he can definitely stretch a dollar. The times in Africa, which he was performing the role as a volunteer, did change my cousin dramatically. He has now transformed into a more developed man.

      All in all, I am glad to have Mathew as my cousin. It's a pleasure to be with him and I really enjoy sharing good moments with him. I am sure we will always be close cousins and I am very appreciative of his great, positive change.
