Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Throughout our lives, we meet many people who have a significant impact on us, either directly or indirectly. Among them, there is one person who has taught me something valuable that I will always remember. Here, for this nice cue card topic, I will tell you who this person is, what he taught me and how this has been proven to be important for me.

Who this person is:
The person who taught me something important is my mother's elder brother, who I refer to as Uncle Tom. He is an experienced businessman who has been running his own company for over three decades.

How you know him or her:
I have known Uncle Tom since I was a child. He is my mother's brother, and we have always been close to his family. I used to visit his office during my school vacations, where he would give me small tasks to do, such as organizing files or helping him prepare for meetings.

What this person has taught you:
Uncle Tom has taught me several important lessons over the years, but the most significant one was the importance of hard work and dedication. He always emphasised the need to work hard, especially when starting a new venture or business. He taught me that success is not handed to you on a silver platter, but rather it is earned through persistent effort and perseverance. He also taught me to be patient and to never give up on my dreams, no matter how challenging they may seem.

And explain how it is important to you:
The lessons that Uncle Tom taught me have been invaluable to me, both personally and professionally. They have shaped my work ethic and motivated me to pursue my goals with determination and resilience. Whenever I face challenges or obstacles, I think back to his advice and draw strength from his example. Uncle Tom has been a role model for me, and I feel grateful for the impact he has had on my life.
