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

Anyway, to give you a bit more details, I used to work as a Senior Customer Relation Manager for a big retail clothing outlet in my country in the past. Everything was great ab

You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.] Model Answer 1: Life is full of many happy events and occasions. Thankfully, I have also been blessed to experience some of these happy occasions in my short life, and this cue card topic offers me a perfect opportunity to revisit one such happy occasion today. Back in my high school days, about 10 years ago or so, I wasn’t exactly known to be a very “strong” young lad, comparing to the other young boys of my age.

But, I will still go ahead and try to find one to talk about that made me feel proud.

In fact, I am the only member in the family to get a chance to do my higher study outside of our country. I applied to various universities in many different countries, and finally my hard work was paid off. This is a nice topic for me to talk about. The beginning of the event was in my home country a few mont
