Model Answer:
Thank you for allowing me to talk about something on this interesting topic. To be honest, I want to have many things in the future, apparently because I can’t have them now. I would surely love to talk about all of those things one by one, but I am sure that I won’t have enough time to do so. So, I will just go ahead and talk about that one thing which I have always wanted from my childhood.

This particular thing, I want to have, is a personal car. But, it is easier said than done because it is not a cheap commodity by any means. Of course, it was a lot more affordable when I wanted to have it for the first time many years ago except, of course, I just didn’t have any money back then. After all, at that time, I only had finished high school.

However, now, I am working and earning some money, but the amount of money, I am making currently, will take me at least about another 3 years or so to save up enough just to buy a moderate car,  let alone a real nice and expensive one.

By the way, I am not exactly sure where I saw a car for the first time, but I am sure I saw it a long time ago as a child at a shop when my father took me there to buy me some chocolate ice cream. At that time, I didn’t have much idea about its value or purposes, but it sure looked very nice and shiny.

Anyway, I want to own it, primarily because it will offer me the freedom and ease of communication and movement while saving me a lot of time. I want to own it also because having it is still considered as a symbol of status and prestige in our society. Finally, I want to have it because I think that it will be a great investment for the future.
