IELTS Writing Sample Answer # Famous at Young

Most people dream of fame and fortune. For some fame comes instantly while others have to go through a rigorous struggle to achieve it. Although some people become successful at a very young age, for others it may take some time.

Some people become famous at a very young age. Is it a good or a bad thing?

SAMPLE ANSWER

In modern times, with the advent of social media, it is quite easy for people to become famous at a very young age. Being famous is not only associated with talent but with hard work too. Some people believe that becoming a known personality at a young age can have several repercussions while others are of the view that age does not matter and it is all about how an individual handles fame.

Being famous brings a lot of social issues along with it which can have a major impact on an individual. People may cheer you up for anything done right and then turn their back on for small mistakes done. For instance, when Justin Bieber started his music career he was instantly admired, but with time, when he started making changes in his lifestyle, there were a lot of accusations that he had to face, jeopardizing his career.

However, being famous at a young age allows you to make all the mistakes that one either ways make, learn from them and move on. A person who is able to handle being famous from a young age tends to grow as a mature adult and venture out in different directions towards the later stages. For instance, the Indian cricketers who got to be in the hall of fame from the beginning could relate to the battles and towards the end of their career, smoothly transit to other viable options.

In my personal opinion, as long as it does hamper personal growth, there is nothing wrong. However, if it impacts the talent of the individual, it is better to grow the talent perfectly, before he or she is shoved off in front of the public.

  • This is quite helpful.

  • Should we explain both good and bad things or we can just support the one. I think we can do it like agree diagree question?

    • Dear Sushmita,
      You should explain both the views in this case, as this essay carries that pattern. This pattern would need you to present and discuss both opinions, and then give your personal opinion in the last paragraph.

      Thank you.
