Sample Answer of Describe a Positive Change in Your Life
Well, when change comes mostly, it gets people out of their comfort zone; it’s not always that easy to accept change. So, today l will talk about the time when l witnessed positive change in my life. It was thirteen years ago when l joined the defence force; I left my hometown of Chinhoi in the southeast of Zimbabwe to stay in the military camp, 200kms away from my parents, after six months under strict and intense recruit training. I didn’t think this would be a positive change at first because l think it’s everywoman’s dream to work in an office where you get to put on high heeled shoes, and now and then you treat yourself to a manicure and get those elegant nails, which is not the case with the uniformed forces. You do not get to enjoy all those luxuries because of the nature of the job. Fine, why l say it was the best move ever because the training taught me a great deal of endurance and discipline; it taught that for anyone to live their dream, they must move out of their comfort zone. In that way, you get to grab different chances for a better lifestyle and all the glamour you dream of. So, here l am today, standing as a strong woman who could pursue her dream of becoming a nurse, which l never thought would happen before l joined the force. Still, an opportunity was created in another way that l never thought existed.

Question 5. Compare the pace of technological progress in the past and the present?
Answer – It could be a difficult one to answer, but l think it’s now moving at a remarkable rate. If this had happened some five or ten decades back, we wouldn’t witness a human being going to work at all; everyone would have been laid off, including the teachers, drivers, or even the Presidents, who knows what we are going to wake up to one of these days, with these enormous strides that technology is taking. L think in the past, not a lot of people knew about technology or were educated. It required one who had in-depth knowledge, acumen and intelligence to invent or prove an idea; nowadays, they are a lot or can l say people are working in groups coming up with new designs. The efforts of a group of people are appreciated that way, unlike in the past when one guru was appreciated for the huge accomplishment. Also, l think many different inventions or creations are cropping up at an alarming speed each day, as there is a great deal of competition as everyone tries to outdo the other. Everyone wants a huge following and enormous profits.
