If you work for society, you will surely be honoured by everyone. Marcus Rashford is proving this every day. He is winning every day on and off the field. Every human being is hailing Rashford for his great work outside the football pitch.
He has taken a resolution to end child hunger in the UK. The England striker forced the UK-government to take a U-turn on free school meals earlier this summer, which was admired by everyone around the world.
His work was appreciated by his teammates, managers, friends. He has also got appreciation from opposition managers and players as well.
Yesterday he was honoured with a Panel Special Award during the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony. He joined the ceremony after his match against Leeds United.
In the ceremony, Rashford said, “Growing up as a kid I felt if it was a 100-metre race I started 50 metres behind everybody else.”
“It was more difficult for me to do the basic things like getting to training, eat the right things, it was a nightmare of a situation to be in, but in the end, I got to where I needed to get to.”
“Once I got there I just had this thing that eats at me saying “make sure you make a difference for the next generation.”
“I think as a country we should protect them as m much as we can and give them the best chance at life and become whatever it is they want to become.”
“It was something I tried a few years ago in Manchester but I wasn’t satisfied with the reach it was having.”
“A few years later I was speaking to my brothers and my mum and said “I’m going to have another go at it”. And then we did, and what happened since then we didn’t expect.”-he added.
Marcus Rashford is a role model for everyone in the UK. Everyone hopes he will continue his work until the goal is reached.
