Describe a famous person you’re interested in

Describe a famous person you’re interested in

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • why you think this person is interesting

Sample Answer

One of the people that I’ve always admired is Arnold Schwarzenegger, an American actor, retired professional bodybuilder, a former politician, and a very rich man. So it’s not surprising that I’d like to meet him in person. When I was a child, he was my idol, my role model and my inspiration. The walls in my room were covered with posters depicting him. I remember I made quite a scene when someone, probably my younger brother, tore one of them. It was a tragedy, really.

The first time I saw Arni was probably in the first Terminator movie. By the way, it was one of my favourite movies, so I watched it over and over again. I guess some of the scenes are forever burned into my mind.

I thought he was really cool. And I was really inspired by his success story, a typical story of an underdog, wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He started from the bottom and became rich and famous. Isn’t it amazing? Moreover, almost nobody believed in him. Despite this, Schwarzenegger achieved unprecedented heights and fame.

As you might imagine, I don’t know him personally. So, of course, I can’t be sure that what I think of him is true, but judging by his achievements, he really is ambitious, hardworking, brave and disciplined. Otherwise, I think he wouldn’t have achieved success.
