Describe a time you made a promise to someone
You should say:
What the promise was
To whom you made it
Whether it was easy or difficult to keep
And explain why you made it
A time I made a promise to someone happened about three years ago.
The promise was that I must study abroad to pursue my higher education degree. As you can guess, I made it to my parents. You know, they are strong advocates of international education and like to see their kid show that learning capability.
To be honest, I still think it was really a rough experience to keep this promise, since breaking the barriers, such as language, and academic performance, wasn’t easy. This article is from Laokaoya website. To make it one step closer to reality, I literally burned the midnight oil for every important exam at school. As you know, GPA counted heavily in college applications.
Well, I think one of the reasons why I made this promise was that I did not want my parents down. You know, they care about me more than they do about themselves. Another reason is that being able to study abroad is indeed a good opportunity for me to broaden my horizon, and thus become more aware of who I want to be.
