Model Answer:
I often offer technology-related support to people like troubleshooting a computer or fixing a router, and some people have opined that it has greatly helped them. Actually, I am a tech enthusiast and like to help others whenever possible. For this topic, I would like to tell you how my support to fix people's computers and other electronic devices render great help to them.

I have been a passionate computer user since my early school days, perhaps when I was just 6 or 7 years old. Due to my experiments and interest in electronic devices and computers, I have found that I could repair them and solve almost any operating system related issue. Since then I have helped others to fix such problems and I still help others this way. A couple of months ago, I fixed a minor issue with one of my neighbour's microwave woven and she was very happy with it.

How did I start doing it? Well, I was just 11 years old when I went to visit my maternal uncle's house and found that their computer was dead and needed some expensive servicing or parts replacement. I asked my uncle if I could look at it. He was really surprised to hear that but was even more amazed when I had been able to fix the computer within an hour. All I did was put the RAM to a different slot and then reinstall the operating system, and the computer was up and running. It was a marvellous experience for me and this was the first time when I realised how a little help could save people from lots of frustration and money. I have tried to help others this way ever since.
 
I believe the thing I do is helpful to others as numerous times I've found that whenever I could fix someone's problem with an important electronic device or computer, it brought smiles on their faces. The way they appreciate me each time I help them is genuine. I can recall that several times I helped some students to fix their computers or laptops when they could not fix them due to money problems or time constraints, and they mentioned how grateful they really were.  I am happy to be able to help them when they need it the most.
