A person You Admire/Love/Like Essay – IELTS Cue Card Sample 4
|Describe a person you love/like/admire.
Band 9.0 Model Answer
Generally, people may have admiration for a celebrity like a singer or an actor… but for me, it isn’t like that. I look up to people I know as role models. I admire my manager.
As a student with little experience in the tourism industry, it is lucky for me to have a talented mentor at work… who keeps an eye on my professional training as well as daily life. She makes sure I keep track of the time I’m using productively.
I still remember the first time we got to know each other in the interview when the conversation started in a formal manner but ended up being just like an intimate chat between old friends because we shared so many common things in our interests and background. She struck me with her politeness and a bright smile, by which my stress was slowly released.
Regarding the frequency that we keep in touch, due to my internship schedule that requires daily presence at the office, I’ve got plenty of chances to work with my mentor. She motivates me to strengthen my skills, and never beats about the bush when it comes to criticism so that my performance can be enhanced. Specifically, she advises me never to let my English out of practice, so that I can maintain my English at an advanced level.
Lastly, I should also mention the reason why I admire my manager, well… she has many years of experience in the industry…and deep understanding of my country’s history, culture, and geography… that may take aback anyone in the first meeting. With her passion for promoting Vietnam’s tourism, she is the perfect example of a diligent and passionate employee.
