SAMPLE ANSWER 1
Talking of adventure, the one person that comes to my mind is my brother, David Miller. In times when we thought about jumping off the walls, I remember he went river rafting. Initially, we all were so scared that we tried manipulating him to drop the idea. But he did it and came out stronger. Ever since he has been part of lot many adventurous sports. However, it is not just about playing those sports out, what he has learnt is how to take tough decisions in life. So, when all of us were busy confused on whether we should do certain things or not, he did it.
Recently, he left a very cushioned job to have his own company. I think this is more of a real adventure, the one that effects lot of things and one that requires patience and confidence. In his words, he never takes risk, he does what he thinks is right and then does it all the way no matter how uncomfortable he gets in it.
SAMPLE ANSWER 2
Taking risks requires lot of courage, be it for any sport or for that matter in life. One adventurous person I can think of is a friend of mine Avinash. He has been one of those few people that I met who remained calm on the surface but paddled hard beneath. Talking to him one feels like the only thing that he does is sleep. But, he has been at some of the most amazing places one could think of and done really crazy things.
I remember him telling me how once he sneaked out of his house for a trip to Leh and on reaching called back his parents. He was in 12th grade then. Recently, when I met him he has become a traveller and for earning takes people to people they have never thought of.
I think it is not just about going to the exciting places that makes him adventurous but then doing something that people never thought him to be doing and taking it all over is what makes him audacious.
