Model Answer :
This is such a nice topic to talk about. It reminds me of one memorable occasion when I met someone who later became one of my closest friends during my freshman year at university. Her name is Sarah, and I met her at a campus orientation event that took place in the first week of our classes.

I vividly recall the day - it was a sunny September afternoon, and the campus was bustling with enthusiastic students eager to make new friends. I had just moved to a new city for my studies, and I felt a mix of excitement and anxiety. As I entered the orientation hall, I noticed Sarah sitting alone, looking a bit nervous, like me. When I first saw Sarah, I was struck by her warm and approachable demeanour. She had a friendly smile that instantly put me at ease. I decided to strike up a conversation with her, thinking that we were both new and in the same boat.

As we began talking, I discovered that we had many common interests. We both loved literature, enjoyed hiking in the outdoors, and had a passion for trying out new cuisines. Our conversation flowed effortlessly, and it felt like we had known each other for much longer than just a few minutes.

Throughout that first year of university, Sarah and I became inseparable. We attended classes together, explored the city on weekends, and even joined the same extracurricular clubs. Our bond deepened as we shared our dreams, fears, and aspirations. We supported each other through the ups and downs of university life, from challenging assignments to personal milestones.

What made us good friends was our genuine connection and the trust we developed. Sarah was always there to lend a listening ear, offer advice, or simply share a laugh when things got tough. Our friendship was built on mutual respect, kindness, and a sense of camaraderie that made every moment we spent together enjoyable.

In retrospect, I believe our friendship blossomed because we were both open to making new connections, and we recognized the value of having a true friend during a significant transitional phase in our lives. Meeting Sarah was serendipitous, but our decision to nurture our friendship was a conscious choice.
