Sample Answer:

Today, I’d like to talk about a standout team player, my classmate An, who really shone during a group project we had. Now, An isn’t just your run-of-the-mill student; she’s someone who truly embodies the spirit of teamwork and collaboration.

It was during our school’s annual science fair last spring that I had the pleasure of working with her. We were a part of a four-person team tasked with a project on renewable energy, which was quite daunting, given the complexity of the topic.

An was in charge of collecting and analyzing data, a task she undertook with remarkable diligence. But what really set her apart was her role as the team’s motivator. Whenever any of us felt overwhelmed or hit a roadblock, she was there, offering a pep talk or a creative solution to push us forward.

Why do I think she did well? Well, An’s blend of technical smarts and her infectious enthusiasm was the glue that held our team together. Her ability to encourage us and keep everyone on track was nothing short of inspiring. Thanks to her efforts, our project not only received top marks but also bagged the ‘Best Innovation’ award.

Looking back, An’s performance was a textbook example of leadership in action. She made a lasting impression on all of us, and it’s no exaggeration to say she was the heart and soul of our project.
