Model Answer:
We all like to rejoice every special moment that makes us happy. But, those special moments make us happier when they arrive against all kinds of odds, and today, I would like to talk about one such special moment.

The special moment, which made me so happy, arrived about 5 years ago when my younger sister was trying to earn her medical practice license in order to work and practice as a medical doctor. But, of course, it was never an easy thing to earn, and my younger sister was trying her level best to pass the test. But, just before a few days of that important test, she suddenly fell sick with terrible fever and cough.

In fact, she was so sick that her doctor advised her to have complete bed rest for the next one week, which meant that she wouldn’t be able to appear for the medical practice license test. Needless to say, she felt really sad about not being able to take her medical practice test. Of course, we all tried to provide her with some consolation, saying that she could take the test again after one year, but she was just too upset to listen to us. Anyway, eventually, she realized that things are beyond anybody’s control when it comes to being sick.

By the way, to tell a little about my younger sister, she is a very emotional person, very passionate about helping sick people all along without charging any money for it, and that’s why she decided to become a doctor. So, she did pass her medical practice license test after one year, not only making her happy but also me and the rest of my family.

Anyway, my sister passing the test indeed was a very special moment for me, mainly because the years of my sister’s hard works had finally paid off. It was a happy moment also because her success really made me proud as a brother of an honest and a truly philanthropic person.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible.

I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deterioratin
