Sample 1

In our day-to-day life, we see film stars, sportsmen and politicians in the news. Sometimes, we are so impressed by them that we want to meet them personally. Here, I would like to talk about a person whom I would like to meet personally and get his autograph. He is not a superstar but a superhuman being – Sonu Sood, a humanitarian and philanthropist. He has worked as a villain in many films, but in real life, he is a hero who is a saviour to so many people. Recently, he was in the news during Covid when he decided to help migrants return to their homes by arranging medical equipment like oxygen cylinders, etc.; unless other superstars, Sonu refrains from show-off. That is one of the qualities I like about him. He is definitely an inspiration to the youth for his kind act, and I would like to thank him for the commendable work he is doing for the people.

Sample 2

I love to watch and play football, so I like Lionel Messi a lot; he is a world-class player, and even everyone calls him the GOAT of football. In 2014, I first watched the football game live on my mobile phone, it was the world cup of football, and then I became a fan of his. He always remains in the news not only for games but also for his kindness to children. He loves to help needy people as well as respect everyone. I want to meet him because he is my ideal, and as a fan, I love to see him in the game and want to see him at least once in my life.
