Model Answer:
I can’t really say that I feel very comfortable visiting people at their workplaces. After all, I never really like to bother people, when they are busy, unless I have a very valid reason to do so. But, today, I would like to talk about a time when I actually felt a bit relaxed with visiting a family member of mine at her workplace.

This family member of mine, I visited, was none other than my own elder sister who used to work as a senior medical doctor at a medical college about 7 years ago. Back then, I was a final year high school student with very little interest in medical science, and that’s probably why I seldom used to talk to my sister about her job or medical college.

By the way, prior to that day, I had visited the medical college to see some patients occasionally, but as far as meeting with my elder sister was concerned, it just never happened. Of course, she used to ask me many times to visit her at her work, but I never really showed any interest in doing so. But, on that day, I needed to visit her because I needed to collect a fitness certificate in order to become a member of our high-performance high school scout team.

So, naturally, when she found me at her office, she was initially very surprised, but then she jokingly inquired if I somehow took a wrong turn on the road and ended up at her office by mistake! Needless to say, her joke didn’t only make me laugh but also the rest of her coworkers!

But, anyway, I felt really great about visiting the workplace of my sister for the first time, primarily because everybody there was very friendly to me. Besides, I also felt a bit privileged because the visit allowed me to see a place where many important decisions were made to save the life of many people around us.
