Sample Answer:

Well, I am going to share with you an ambition that I have had for a long time. It is to immigrate to another English-speaking country to live and work there.

To be honest, the only plan I had for it was seeking a scholarship and somehow finding a job there to work permanently. However, I haven’t paid a lot of mind to it, because all of the countries that speak English still give me concerns about their social and political stability. Therefore, only when they make some radical changes that are more facilitating to immigrants, can I get to fulfill my dream.

Regarding when my ambition can be materialized, I am not even sure whether it can begin at all because of the currently ongoing turbulent situation of the global pandemic called the Covid-19. Also, racism towards people of color due to white supremacy is another big issue to take into consideration. Therefore, I might have to start thinking about giving it up.

I have had this ambition for quite some time, probably 10 years and at that time the country I was hoping to immigrate to was the USA. It was around the time of Obama’s administration, who got re-elected for another term thanks to his really inclusive policies to all people of the USA.

America at that time was really a great place to be living in, that was why I fantasized about becoming a civilian. Also, I used to believe that life would be better in a developed country due to the bombardment of America’s pop culture. In contrast, the reality is so much harsher and crueler than what is broadcast every day. I might sound a little pessimistic but I also have optimistic faith that the world will change for the better.
