Sample Answer 2


Every person has some unique qualities. Some are inborn and some are acquired by training. I love to share the skills I possess with others.

Here I am going to narrate my experience when I enlightened my friend on how to make pasta. It so happened that 2 months ago I took pasta to school in my lunch box which I had cooked myself. I shared it with my best friend Rabia who found it so palatable that she ended up licking her fingers. It was then that she expressed her desire to learn cooking it from me.

I welcomed this idea and asked her to come to my home so that I could show her practically instead of sharing the recipe just verbally. The very next day she came to my home and after exchanging courtesies over the cup of coffee. We proceeded towards the kitchen. First I made her boil the pasta and also suggested her to add a teaspoon of oil to prevent sticking. Then both of us chopped the vegetables together and kept all the ingredients required for the recipe near at hand.

Then I made her add all the spices, mayonnaise, tomato sauce, soya sauce and vinegar etc. She was amazed at my knowledge of adding the ingredients and spices at the appropriate timings. After that we covered the pan and waited for a while. when the pasta was ready we served it to all the family members. Its Aroma made everyone eat voraciously. My parents appreciated its scrumptious taste. All this made Rabia feel over the moon as I had just instructed her.

All the credit of cooking was for her. She thanked me for teaching her this wonderful recipe. Now too whenever she makes this delicacy she sends me the pic of it to show her gratitude. If i talk about how i felt about it,I derived a great sense of satisfaction over the idea that i proved it to be a good mentor. All in all, it was a rewarding experience to pass on the skill i have to someone else.
