Model Answer 1:
Ok, so i’d like to talk about a person that i know has done a lot of work to help people, And…this is my grandmother on my father’s side. She lived near my childhood home back in the United States and I used to go to her house every, uh, almost every other weekend, umm, because we had a big family and so we’d have lots of events up at my grandparent’s house. And, you know, what…what my grandmother did to help people, well, i think there are lots of things…
But one of the main things is that she used to volunteer at a hospital, umm, reaaly often. You know, i was young so i don’t know exactly how often she would volunteer but it was definitely a common thing. And i remember my parents talking about this when i was younger and stuff like that. But i really felt it when i was back visiting home one time and i had to visit the hospital for something. And while was waiting a lady come out and talked to me and she said she had known my grandmother and worked with her when she was at the hospital. And that she was always so impressed and really admired, umm, my grandmother and her kindness and how much she gave to the people around her. So that was quite an interesting conversation for me. And i really felt like it was meaningful and my grandmother had been doing meaningful things for the people around her. Um, you know, other than at the hospital of course she took care the people in my family so she would host birthday parties and make lots of different kinds of food and…just always giving to other people so i think she set a really good example in that sense and um, i hope that i’ll be able to be a giving and helpful person like she was in the future.
