Sample Answer

Friendship is a beautiful relation that touches everyone’s lives in a different way. I too have had many amazing people as my friends, especially during my childhood. I can recall many such friends who were very close to me, but the closest one was Smith.

He was my best friend for a better part of my childhood. I met him when I was 6 years old. He lived in the neighborhood just two houses away from ours. I met him on the first day in the society garden. I was roaming about aimlessly when he appeared and asked me if I live here. We started talking and discovered a lot of common things to talk about. Soon became the best buddies for almost 7 years until his family moved to another state. We had a lot of matching thoughts and hobbies. We both liked playing video games, collecting comic books, watching cartoons, reading stories, amongst other activities. We used to go to school and many other outings together. We also played and studied together at both our homes.

Our goals in the future were also the same as we both wanted to become teachers when we grew up. We even had a similar taste in food and dressing ideas. This friendship was important to me to such an extent that I considered him as my sibling more than a friend. He was the only neighboring kid who I spent the maximum amount of my time with. The best part is all the memories that we created together and the fact that I still cherish them in my heart.
