Model Answer:
Thank you for this nice topic. Here, I will tell you about a risk that I took, and which has bought a positive outcome for me.

In our life, we take risks very often - sometimes knowingly and sometimes not so consciously. For instance, an investment decision may be a risk we take after careful planning, but when we cross a busy street, we may not just realize that we are taking a risk. But every venture brings a new opportunity or take turns to shape our life.

During my early university years, I decided to invest a small amount of money in the stock market in our country and keep rolling the amount while also adding new amounts whenever possible. It was a tough decision to make, and many people advised me otherwise considering the volatile nature of the stock market and the inherent risks. However, I was convinced that with careful investment decisions, investment knowledge and proper market analysis, I would do better.

I took the risk to invest money in the stock market because I thought that I should be making some kinds of investment decisions while I was still a student. As a student in the Business Studies faculty, I could not think of any better investment plan than to venture into the stock market.

Well, the result of the decision and risk was amazingly positive for me. When I completed my undergraduate course at the university, I had an enviable portfolio in the share market. I was not worried even a bit with the education debt I had as I had been able to pay it, and when my other classmates were searching for a job, I was planning to start something I had always wanted to do - my own business. It made a big difference in my prospective future career.

When I took the risk, I felt a mixture of uncertainty, optimism, as well as excitement. The amount I invested was not much but as a student that was hard-earned money for me. Now that I know it was one of the best investment decisions I have ever made, I feel proud and lucky that I decided to take it despite many people's advice not to do that.
