Sample Answer 

Ankush is like a scientist who loves exploring the deep ocean. I know him since past 5 years. He goes on cool trips to learn about underwater stuff and even found a new kind of jellyfish that glows! What’s awesome is that Ankush turns his backyard into a fun class where our kids can learn about the ocean and how to help take care of it. He talks about sharks, those colorful reefs, and what we can do to keep the oceans clean. You can tell he’s really excited about his job, and when he tells us about his adventures, it’s like we’re going on a cool journey too. So, having Ankush as our neighbor is like having a super friendly teacher and an explorer right next door!
