Model Answer 1:

I would like to talk about one of my best friend, Sarah, who studied finance in the university. I met her in a business club for the first time and she left me deep impression. She is a young and dynamic woman who dressed up decently every day. We gradually became familiar with each other through some academic tasks we did together. Now, she works in Shanghai as an analyst in a big company.

I think she is a clever person not only because she is good at calculating and analyzing numbers but also her EQ(emotional quotient) is higher than anyone in my age. It is easy for her to get along well with any different kind of people. I still remember the time that we did a project in the business club. She led us to complete the project as a team leader. I found that she was pretty accessible and considerate when we met problems and made mistakes, she pointed out the faults and asked us to correct without blaming verbally. She never hurts anyone’s self-esteem. Due to lack of financial support for the project, we need to find a sponsor. At first, we failed to get a fund from a businessman. You know, it is not easy to ask someone’s support when you can only give few benefits as a return. But at the end, she made it as she persuaded the sponsor in person. Besides, she gave us lots of smart methods to make things better. Overall, she always can make things like the way she wants. That is why I think she is a clever person.
