Actually, I guess older people are like a house of knowledge and role models, and there are so many things that we could learn from them. Older people can teach young people in a great way since they are really patient. Today I would like to talk about the skill of knitting that I have learnt from my grandmother. Actually, my grandma, who is about 70 years of age now, has spent most of his life doing crafting. Since we have a new house now, she spends most of his time enjoying knitting. It’s a fun activity that enables grandparents to connect with their grandchildren. Seeing her doing this activity made me feel interested, and I requested her to teach me how to deal with knitting. Now every evening, I spend an hour daily helping my grandma. I could say that she has a lot of knowledge and experience in knitting, and she introduced me to various knitting styles that are really well-known. One thing that developed my further interest in this activity is making something funny and cute from wool yarn. She never lets anything go waste. I was very happy when I did this activity because spending time with her also helped me to learn the history and culture in a better way.

Sample 2

I came to know about the passions that are kept by old age people. I learned it from my grandfather. He was so calm that he never argued with anyone. He always teaches me to do so. He used to say that donors argue with anyone. Just put your point. If you are right, they will listen to you. And if you are wrong, learn from your mistake. He always behaves calmly and listens to everyone whenever there is any conflict at home. After listening to everything, he puts his point. And that is always right. It never happened that they proved wrong. I always try to take their thoughts into my mind and try to implement them. Initially, o was not able to do so, but now I have learned that quality, and genuinely, I feel very proud that I absorbed this quality. And I can be calm at any point in time.
