Model Answer:

Introduction:
Helping a friend in need is always a fulfilling experience. I have many instances where I have helped my friends, but one particular moment stands out in my mind. For this topic, I will share this event and experience with you.

When it was:
It was about two years ago when one of my closest friends was going through a tough time. He had just gone through a bad breakup, and he was feeling very low and depressed.

How you helped him/her:
I offered to spend some time with him and listen to his problems. We went out for dinner and talked about what he was going through. I also suggested some activities that he could do to take his mind off the situation, like playing sports or joining a new club.

Why you helped him/her:
I helped my friend because I knew that he was struggling and needed someone to talk to. I've been through similar situations before, so I knew how hard it can be to deal with a breakup. I wanted to be there for him and offer him some support during a difficult time.

How you felt about it:
Helping my friend made me feel good because I knew that I was able to make a difference in his life. Seeing him smile and laugh again after our talk made me happy. I felt like I was able to make a positive impact on his life, and that was a rewarding feeling. Helping others always brings me joy, and I'm glad that I was able to be there for my friend when he needed me the most.
