and explain what benefits you get from this interest or hobby.

Model Answer:
I had “zillions” of hobbies and interests up and until I started to attend university. Now, of course, I have only a couple of them that I tend to enjoy, and today, I would like to talk about one of them here.

Anyway, one of those interests, that I tend to enjoy, is to get involved with fish farming. This fish farming thing has interested me from my early childhood since the time when I used to see my uncles doing fishing with fishing nets and rods. But back then, I couldn’t really do much about going after my interest since the senior members of my family didn’t think that I was old enough to do such a thing.

By the way, when I was a child, I did try to convince my parents that I wanted to use one of our ponds (we had 5 of them) to raise fish on my own. In response, they had told me that I could pursue my hobby only after I was grown up and finished with my studies. Therefore, I had no other option but to wait for at least another 10 years before I could actually go after my fish farming hobby in full swing and all on my own. Now, I have been doing this fish farming thing for the last 5 years and enjoying every minute of it, with at least 5 different types of fishes in my pond, in which they grow like my own children. I feed them, pat on them, and sometimes I even talk to them in order to make sure that they are enjoying their stay at my natural and protected pond.

Well, I enjoy this fish farming hobby because it offers me at least two benefits: the first one is that I can always enjoy eating fresh fish instead of relying on some questionable fish from the market. Secondly, it helps me pass my time in a very productive way when I feel bored and have nothing else to do.
