Model Answer 1:
There are different types of people live in the world together and they are featured with diversified characters. I have met Mr Geffry Ramadin, a man of fun.

Mr Geffry Ramadin is the man who will make you feel comfortable with his companion and you cannot stop laughing hearing his jokes and the way he talks. Basically, he is a computer engineer by7 profession and loves to travel. He is filled with vast experiences of travelling in different parts of the world. The middle-aged man becomes the centre of attraction wherever he starts talking. His experiences have made him a man with numerous unusual experiences and when he describes those, the listeners feel thrilled and simultaneously get fun for his interesting presentation style. He is not a joker but his speeches are filled with humour and you need to have the sense to taste the humour too.

I met him in the elevator of my apartment. I was waiting on the ground floor for the elevator and he was standing beside me. At first, we did not have talks but a few moments later, he started talking over the cellular phone. I came to know that he was the new tenant of the apartment opposite to mine. Then we got introduced inside the elevator and invited him to be at my place for some tea breaks. He granted my invitation and then the complete introduction between us began. Mr Ramadin has lived in different parts of the world for his occupational purposes and been hired by several globally renowned organisations. Since then, he is a senior friend of mine and shares numerous interesting issues.

When I pass moments with Mr Ramadin, he teaches me different skills and tells me stories that were unknown to me. Sometimes, based on his mood, he tells the stories of African people and their living styles, their cultures and customs, how they have been exploited by the colonial rulers and survived, the current conditions of their life and many other similar facts. Besides, I have formed a network with few other neighbours in the apartment building to have chats regularly in the evening when everyone is back from their works. This is a type of recreational activity for us.

Mr Ramadin is a man of letters. He also knows how to make people pleased. So, whenever I meet him, I become pleased after talking with him. When I become stressed for my work or for any other matters, I share my imbalanced mental and emotional states to him to get some advice to overcome the complexities. But before I complete the statements, he provides the solutions and it amazes me most. Whenever I apply for the solutions or work according to the suggestions, it really works for me. The most important thing is that I cannot continue my imbalanced emotional atmosphere during the meets with him.

My sudden meet with Austin at a tour was a memorable event in my life and now he has turned into one of the closest friends of mine. He is a highly interesting character and I admire him for some of his qualities which are absent among the ordinary people. Thank you for this amazing question and here is the description of Austin, the interesting man I know.

Austin is an interesting character to me. He does the things in different ways than we do. He is not funny at all but you will be amazed at his activities. He is adventurous and active. He remains busy always with some sort of activities. But not all the activities bring money for him, he performs them for free to remain active and have some adventure. On the other side, he is caring. He cares for all of his family and friends. He is humble and respects everyone regardless of their age, caste, creed or colour. All these facts have made him interesting to me.

I went on a short trip in Nevada and he was assigned as the guide for the trip. I met him there for the first time. In fact, without his help, it was nearly impossible for the group to make the smooth trip. He was the man who arranged for everything for us. In fact, he arranged for the hotels to stay in Nevada, arranged for sightseeing and other activities. Besides, he ensured the issue of security as all of us were new to the place. Actually, it was a trip from my university, located in Texas, to Nevada to know about the place and gather demographic information of the area. This was a kind of research field trip from the social science council of the university and we participated there. Most of the time, we had to remain busy in data collection process, cleaning the data instantly in the field and entering the data in the software to analyse.

I had to meet with Austin for multiple reasons. The first and most important thing was that I was not familiar with the location and Austin was a native there. He knew the locations very well and had some other skills which also appeared important later. Besides, he was the helping hand to the team who played a great role to make the trip successful. In fact, without the help of Austin, we could not have made a wonderful trip there. His generous nature and active participation helped us greatly. Austin also cared for every one of the team and most importantly he was brave. We actually needed a man like him to pursue our task.

Austin is interesting for many reasons. The most interesting feature of his character is that he is not boring. He knows very well how to keep people engaged in activities. He is always positive and brief in his conversation with other. He does not talk with people unnecessarily. Furthermore, he is a good and active listener. He listens to everyone and then responds accordingly. When he talks, he talks about the interest of the people he is talking with. So, the conversation becomes interesting. Besides, when he speaks with other people, he is straightforward and can tell very good stories to impress them. His way of living and thinking is completely different from the ordinary individuals. Based on all the reasons, he is an interesting person to me.
