Sample Answer 1

Introduction and Who this person is?

Being a voracious reader, I have heard about many foreign persons. In my opinion, the most interesting personality among them is Mr Elon Musk.

How do you know him/her? 

Five years back, I watched a documentary on his life. From that day I became a big fan of him.

What kind of person he/she is?

He was born in South Africa. Now he is a citizen of the united states of America.

He is one of the most unorthodox entrepreneurs of the contemporary epoch. His success thrives primarily on the key personality traits that drive him to lead his life towards an impressive growth trajectory.

Explain why you think he/she is interesting?

He is an interesting person because he has this uncanny knack for going beyond the conventional domain. Due to this habit, he has planned to give a tough competition to NASA, by foraying into the Space Exploration domain.

Unlike other business people, his focus is not on strengthening his bottom line, rather he focuses on solving the pressing problems of planet earth.

Moreover, he has not confined himself to one business. Apart from space exploration, he has a keen interest in automobiles as well. He is the owner of Tesla Motors that produces the best electric car in the world named “TESLA“.

Conclusion

The constant endeavor of Mr Elon Musk to generate out of the box makes him an interesting person.

Sample Answer 2

Introduction and Who this person is?

Although I know many foreign persons, a few of them are interesting. The foreign person I admire the most and whom I find interesting is Reuben Singh

How do you know him/her? 

He came into the limelight in the year 2017 when he carved out a niche for himself by posting seven pictures online, each with a different colour of Rolls-Royce, showcasing a matching turban. He termed it as the ‘turban challenge’. 

His pictures immediately went viral on social media, and after that, he has increased the number of Rolls-Royce models he possesses! In 2019, he showed his opulent lifestyle by posting pictures of his six brand new Rolls-Royce cars. The latest entries to his collection consist of three Phantom sedans and three Cullinan SUVs. 

What kind of person he/she is?

He is not only a religious person but also a seasoned entrepreneur. He pays excessive heed to this identity as a devoted Sikh, and he always goes beyond the conventional domain to protect his pride.

Explain why you think he/she is interesting?

 Reuben Singh had experienced racist comments racial while talking to an Englishman regarding his turban. And to give a suitable reply, Mr Singh threw a challenge of matching the colour of his turban with his Rolls Royce for a week.

 Being a man of his words and pride, he fulfilled his promise. This brave act was more than enough to silence those who judge others for their religious beliefs and sentiments. 

He sounds interesting to me because rather than crying about the racial slur he received, he gave a befitting reply unconventionally.
