Sample Answer 1
Celebrities are often in the news for various reasons. Some of these famous personalities are trending news topics for positive reasons, and others get news media attention due to unfavourable circumstances. One such celebrity I would like to meet is Johnny Depp, who has been a sensational news topic for the past few weeks.
Johnny Depp has been in the news for quite some time due to his infamous defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. Both these celebrities have been fighting against each other legally for a significant amount of time. Allegations have been made by both parties against each other on various occasions. Initially, Amber Heard had accused Johnny Depp of committing domestic violence against her when they were married. Due to these accusations, Johnny Depp suffered both socially and financially. Depp was dropped from some of his most famous roles, like that of Jack Sparrow from the famous Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. It was later revealed that the allegations made by Amber Heard were entirely false. Subsequently, Johnny Depp had legally sued Amber Heard for defamation and received the verdict in his favour after rigorous legal investigation.
Johnny Depp has always been one of the most versatile and talented actors in the world. Depp’s portrayal of Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka and many others have been some of the best performances in cinematic history. I have always wanted to meet Johnny Depp since Jack Sparrow is one of my favourite movie characters. Johnny Depp is also a philanthropist who embarks on numerous charitable ventures. It would be a pleasure to meet such a wonderful human being in person.
Sample Answer 2
I would like to have a meeting with Kenny G, who is a renowned saxophonist. It was long back when I must have been around 7 or 8 years old when I first heard his music. It all started with Forever in Love – a well-known piece. After listening to this melodious and relaxing tune, there was no turning back. I fell in love with Kenny’s skills.
Recently, Kenny held a concert in Vietnam. Soon it turned into a significant news story that almost every media channel and newspaper was covering. In fact, this news was there on certain radio channels as well. For somebody like me, who adores this saxophonist and has been listening to his recordings for years, this was nothing less than a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet him in person and listen to his magic at a live concert.
Many people in the current world think musicians don’t contribute to society. But I think any type of career, irrespective of the genre, plays an essential role in our lives. Similar to a businessman, a musician holds utmost importance. After all, without music, the world would go into the pit of boringness and dullness. Also, it is soothing to the soul and relaxing to the brain. So, we really cannot quantify the advantages of music. It leaves a positive effect on us, which is worth valuing.
Meeting Kenny G, I would like to discuss his work and let him know how he impacted me.
- Saxophonist: Somebody who plays the saxophone
Eg: I attended this live music concert where the saxophonist was at his best.
- Melodious: Pleasant music
Eg: Lata Mangeshkar is one of the famous Indian singers with a melodious voice.
- Once in a lifetime: Something that doesn’t happen again and again
Eg: Visiting the Amazon rainforest was once in a lifetime experience for me.
- Soothe: Something that relaxes and offers peace
Eg: Pure Indian food soothes my soul.
- Quantify: Something like a number or amount
Eg: The amount of happiness I get from traveling cannot be quantified.
