Sample Answer of Describe a Family Member that Did Something that Made You Feel Proud
This was about five years ago when my younger brother Damian was about 12 years old. I quite remember it was a Friday afternoon when it was his turn to do the dishes, but he ran off to play football outside. He came home later that night and sneaked into his room to sleep. The next morning my dad called him and grounded him for a day. He was not supposed to either watch TV, use his phone or go outside. He was also to mow the grass. He was sitting on the sofa waiting till evening to do the mowing as the sun was scorching that afternoon. Then in came two of his friends with a laptop. My brother is the best gamer in the neighbourhood, and they brought it to him that they were stuck at a level in this game they were playing, so he should pass the level for them. My brother seeing an opportunity, struck a bargain with them to play the game in exchange for them to mow the yard. To my utmost surprise, these boys agreed and went straight to the task. I felt so proud of him, looking at him smiling and playing video games while these poor children did their punishment for him. What a great opportunity and a great bargain he struck. From that day, I nicknamed him “the bargainer”.
