Sample Answer of Talk about an Old Person You Know and Respect
One old person whom I know and respect a lot is my teacher. My preschool teacher precisely. Her name is Ramani, and she retired a long time ago from my school. But I still made contact with her. I know her because she was my class teacher in nursery and primary school. She taught me for three years.
She was my first teacher, and I have hazy, murky memories of that days, but I do have an enriching learning experience with her. Ms Ramani is the same as still as she was in school, lovable, gorgeous, optimistic, energetic and always smiling and welcoming. I got a chance to meet her in our school reunion program a few months ago, and I saw that she has become really old now.
Her face has wrinkles, and her hair is grey now; however, her warm attitude and positive smile are still the same. She was old but young and evergreen at heart. The best part was she remembered many of us after so many years. Mrs. Ramani is worthy of respect, and she hasn’t stopped learning.
Even at the age of 60, she is still learning and keeps herself updated with the technologies. Recently, I read an article about her in a newspaper that she also teaches slum children for free. This is really great, especially at this age she still spreading the knowledge. She has done more if like these benevolent activities.

As I was the only nurse in my neighbourhood, so I visited every older individual monthly for checking their bp level and sugar count and consulted the doctor digitally, Moreover the volunteers bought necessary things for them and also the medicines. Sometimes people cook the food for them and deliver it to their doorstep. So these all activities are we done in the pandemic.
