Describe something you did that made you feel proud of yourself.

You should say:

  • what you did
  • when you did it
  • why you felt proud of what you had done

and explain how you felt when this happened.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Sample Answer:
While going to my office in Victoria City in Hong Kong, I saw an accident and immediately responded. Being hit by a car, a man was lying on the street and was bleeding while the car escaped the scene. I took him to the nearest hospital and informed his relatives to be there immediately. And interestingly, I did all the things alone. Nobody came to my help at that moment. This is a nice cue card topic and I will share the experience by answering the remaining questions.

I am a sales executive for a multinational corporation based in New York. I was on the way to my office by riding my bicycle. And the accident took place in the downtown of the city and it was a rush in the morning. Everyone was on their way to the office. And it was all on a sudden that the accident took place. The car driver might have been not aware of the pedestrian or the victim might have been crossing the road being unaware.

Honestly, I felt proud for my response there. There were lots of people on the street but everyone was in a hurry. I do believe they could not help the injured person despite their intentions. But as I responded to the event, I feel proud of myself. I know when and how to handle the emergencies and it was a similar incident. I could have been the victim as well. My immediate reflex made me run for helping the injured man and I am humbly proud of it.

I felt sad for the man. He might have started his work or to attend an important appointment or for any other purposes. But he could not reach his destination. And it was a troublesome matter for him.  However, being able to help him was a great feeling for me. To put it in a simple word, it was fulfilling.
