You should say:

  • Who this person is
  • How you know about this person
  • What sort of life they had before they became famous

  • And explain why you like this person

Sample Answer:


Well, this world is full of good people, and out of many, I would like to talk about an activist cum computer programmer. His name is Julian Assange, and I am very interested in him.

Who this person is, and How you know about this person?

Assange is the man behind Wikileaks. It is a multi-national media organization and associated library that works on the motto to expose corrupt governments. His full name is Julian Paul Assange, and he is an Australian editor, publisher, and activist who founded WikiLeaks in 2006. I got to know about Wikileaks from an online blog a long time ago. I am an IT engineer, and due to this, I was quite impressed by the technologies used in the Wikileaks website to make it untraceable. Therefore, I started searching the mind behind this super website.

What sort of life they had before they became famous, and how this person became famous? 

In the year 2010, when Wikileaks published a series of leaks provided by U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. Due to this leak, he became famous all over the world. Before the launch of Wikileaks, he was a computer programmer and an activist. He was always keen to work for the people. Wikileaks exposed countless scams by the governments, and it became possible because of the website developed by Assange.

Why do you like this person?

I like him because of his braveness. He did not think twice before fighting with the corrupt governments. However, he has paid the price of speaking the truth about the governments and security forces. A few years back, he was arrested by the police. I mean what he did, he just tried to make this world a better living place, and nothing else, period.

However, today, social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are enough to make people popular even without step out of their respective homes.

4. What qualities do famous people have in common

The first quality is passion. It is vital to achieving the goal. I think it is the most common trait of famous people. Apart from desire, I would say patience is also equally important. An impatient person can’t become a good example.

5. What do you think about nepotism amongst the famous people

I would not like to comment much on this question. Yes, it happens a lot. However, In my opinion, talent is much more essential. I have seen children of the most admired personalities tasting the flavor of failure. Therefore, nepotism can get you a chance, but your talent would help you gain true recognization.
