Model Answer 1:
For a living on the planet, we need a job, but that should be standard and motivating enough to maintain me and my passion and expenditures. I want to be a journalist in my professional life.

Journalism is the way to explore information and it is also considered as a prestigious job across the world. I have a fascination for journalism since my childhood and now I am a few years away to grab the job. After completing my graduation in Journalism and Media Studies, I would like to take it as my profession. Moreover, it has a good number of benefits too. If you become a journalist, you will be able to learn about many issues which were unfamiliar to you. You have to be aware of the happenings of your surroundings and you will also have the chances to travel in different countries and places in order for collecting news and thus you will be wiser than before. This job also has a natural obligation for informing people about the events and insight of everything you write about.

Journalism is a challenging job. No other profession is as challenging as it appears to me. It is challenging in this sense that a journalist has to collect news and information over different issues but sometimes they are in real trouble if they fail to collect the news or if they reveal any confidential information to mass people. In both the ways, they are to experience different troubles like losing the job and sometimes they are to lose their lives too. Whatever the risks are, it is truly a thrilling job. Another important aspect is that journalists are accessible to the places which are too difficult and sometimes beyond imagination for the common people. Besides, they are sent to meet with famous people or celebrities in order to collect their news and views.

I need at least a graduation on Journalism or similar other subjects. A higher study over the issue is highly preferable but the graduation will do. I am planning to pursue a higher study on the field after starting my career as a journalist. Besides, the journalists always need to be careful about each of their issues related to news collection. They need to use cameras, writing abilities, drafting skills, shorthand writing capacity to collect news fast, preparing news for the publication or telecast etc. among the other tasks. Therefore, I have also admitted to a short-term basic photography learning course and bought a book to learn shorthand writing skills. Besides, a sharp sense is the other important factor for journalism.

When I read news on newspapers, I try to imagine that I am one of those who are engaged in collecting the news. They travel here and there and remain busy all the day long. They travel from different vehicles and mostly collect news from awkward situations. Regarding the television channels, a few news is aired live and the journalist present there share the latest situations live with the audience. It is truly an exciting job. Again some of the news reporters turn famous for their outstanding ability to discover something special.

Since my childhood, I have been fostering the dream to be a journalist and therefore, I am planning to be one.

Sample Answer 2:
Being a successful an actor is really a tough task. It requires a special set of skills which majority of the people do not have with them. So, they cannot be actors rather enjoy the performance of the actors. I have some skills that can elevate me to the stage of a noted actor someday. Thank you for the smart question.

It may sound weird to many that I want to be a professional actor. To make it clearer, I want to take it as my job in future. In fact, I have been mulling on the matter for past couple of weeks. I am a college student here in Greece and continuing my undergraduate. After the completion of my graduation, I have decided to participate in professional acting. I will start it by performing arts and then gradually will move for television acting and cinema. Hope I would be successful in my plans.

I have a passion for acting. In fact, I am in touch with the acting from my early age. My dad was a great actor of his days and had taken part in some of the cinemas as well. But did not continue the profession considering some familial issues. It took time for him to grow but the family did not allow him to be with the profession. So, he left acting and joined at a government job. But the thing is not similar to me. I have my complete liberty to do whatever I want to do. My dad is highly supportive of this case. Actually, he is my inspiration in this case. He wants me to be a famous actor across the nation. Moreover, I am attached to a small group of theatre activists in my locality and skilled with the acting basics. This is a plus for me that I will not need to get schooling for acting as many of the artists had undergone.

Acting requires some special skills, particularly the actor need to cope with the situations. S/ he will need to reflect the character of them. Without properly reflecting the character or completely getting inside the character, it is impossible to bring out the real performance. Before performing for any role, most of the artists go through some sort of training to get inside the character. Besides, they need to reflect the expression perfectly so that the audience could get entertained. In fact, acting is an art form. To be the artist, actors need to be skilled and invest a huge amount of time to bring perfection to the character they are carrying on. Imitating is an important skill here. If the actor is unable to replicate the scenarios or any particular situation, it is tough for them to entertain the audience.

Being an actor has some special benefits. First of all, it makes the actors famous in both national and international level. This is the thing I want most. I want to be familiar with people and make an intimate bond with them. By performance, I would be able to reach them and send them messages on issues. On the other side, acting is hazardous as well. Often the artists need to take risky shots and even they may lose their lives. It appears adventurous to me. This type of activities has a different charm to me. They make me thrilled. Further, acting requires lots of concentrations. When you are performing in a crowd, you need to be focused on your role. Such activities help to increase your personal skills like enriched attention, desire to reach goals etc. Considering all the matters, I have decided to be an actor. But I need to wait and cross a long road to fulfil my dream. Someday definitely I will be successful in my journey.
