Tell about a time when you had to write a lot. You should say –
When and where it was?
What you had to write about?
Explain how you felt about writing a lot.
I believe, good reading and writing skills are the basic requirements of preparing for any examination. Writing is actually an art of using our creativity, skills, and imagination to create something that’s beautiful and expressive. Through writing, we convert our knowledge, thoughts and opinions into words so that we can store them in some notebooks or diaries for a lifetime. Sometimes our writings leave an everlasting impact on the mind of the readers.
I am currently pursuing an MBA program and my favorite subject is marketing management. The subject teacher taught it so well that I could understand every concept of it thoroughly and eventually developed my interest in this particular subject. She tried her best to explain the theory with the help of suitable examples which made it so easy to understand and learn. We had our end-term exams at the end of the first semester. My first exam was of marketing management. For appearing in the examination, I reached in the classroom searched for my seat and settled there.
After a while, the examiner arrived and distributed both the question papers and answer sheets. Even when the question paper was lengthy my desire to write knew no bounds. I knew the answer to each and every question asked in the exam. I kept attempting all the questions very fast as the time was running out of my hands. A lot had to be written in a limited period of time. Without getting distracted for a moment, i continuously wrote for almost 3 hours. All the students in the examination room got astonished by the number of extra sheets I had taken. That was indeed a memorable day of my life as I had not written that much ever in my life before.
Something you borrowed from a friend or a family member.
When was this incident?
What did you borrowed?
How was your experience?
Friends and family are highly important relationships that stand by you in your time of need. Man is a social entity, and always forms ‘give and take relations, where they take help and help those in need every time. I have a lot of good friends and caring, supportive family members as well. We all stand by each other’s side during tough times. One such incident is worth mention, and it is about my cousin brother. It happened when I had just cleared my degree and joined my first job. I liked my job very much even though it was a very hectic one.
I had a load of assignments I needed to complete, which often required me to work after hours from my home. This posed an issue as I did not own a computer then. One day, I was on an outing with my cousin, who was very fond of me and adored me. Being the elder brother, he taught me a lot through real-life examples of life and its problems with the utmost compassion. I told him of this issue during our discussion, in hopes that he would help me out with his advice there as well. To my surprise, he took me to his place and gave me his personal laptop computer. He basically lent it to me and told me to return it back only after I had purchased one of my own.
I was humbled and thankful to him for this huge help, as well as worrying about hampering his work. He assured me that he had an official laptop as well, and it was sufficient for his work. I thanked him a lot and used the laptop for the next three months. After saving from my salary, I purchased a new laptop for my own use and returned my cousin his laptop. I still keep that incident as a cherished memory and thank him for his graciousness.

A leisure activity you have done with your family.
Who was there?
When and where did you do it?
What was it about?
And explain how you enjoy it.
Spending Sundays together has always been a tradition in my family. We engross ourselves in different leisure activities like playing card, going out for a picnic or watching a movie together. But last month, we thought of trying something different. My mother planned to bake a cake for an evening get together, on the occasion of my grandfather’s birthay. The only condition was that every member of the family has to contribute.
As we’d decided to bake a cake, all my family member including my mother, father and brother were assembled in the kitchen. As none of us knew the recipe of a chocolate cake, my mother assigned tasks to everyone.
As I told earlier, the main reason behind baking a cake was my grandfather’s 70th birthday. And it was a small surprise since he always favored family bonding and learning new skills collectively. So we initiated and I made the batter of the cake. My brother was given the responsibility to make the icing and decorate the cake whereas my father had to do the dishes. My mother acted as a supervisor.
Though the cake did not turn out to be that great, it was an enjoyable activity. We sang songs, recalled old memories and cherished the time with my family. On the whole, it was a wonderful experience and I look forward to spending more relaxing time with my close ones.
As I belong to an Indian village, there are many amenities that lack in the rural areas of my country. There is a high mortality rate due to insufficient health care facilities. Last year, I witnessed a close relative pass away in front of me while giving birth. It was extremely heart breaking for me and my family and I took a decision to set up adequate and low-cost health care facilities in my village. And the day I will be successful with my scheme, it would be a special day in my life.
I would like to bring free of cost health checkups and basic medical resources so that people of my village do not have to face the loss of their loved ones due to financial problem or lack of amenities. I would also like to train locals to conduct deliveries and care for new- born at low cost.
It’s my dream to introduce trained doctors in my village and get the hospital inaugurated by my family members. This would make not only my family but the fellow villagers proud and relieved of problems they face due to the absence of professional assistance.
The feeling of doing something for your loved ones is indescribable. The people in my village are too innocent and gullible. Due to which many cunning doctors and medical staff try to trick them by taking advantage of their illiteracy. I would feel contended if they are provided with the right information and assistance regarding their illness and they’re not misled by anyone.
